In addition to traditional phenotypic selection, modern plant breeding is increasingly relying on molecular methods. IDENTXX supports vine growers with the analysis of genetic markers in the breeding of fungus-resistant vines
In modern plant research, questions concerning gene expression and transcript analysis are becoming increasingly important. Therefore, IDENTXX GmbH has consistently expanded its range of methods in this direction.
The DNA analysis of large-volume samples (> 1 g material input) is a unique methodical service of IDENTXX GmbH. With their help, for example, collection leaf samples from wheat, barley, maize or rapeseed can be tested quantitatively (qPCR) for pathogens.
IDENTXX GmbH receives approval to carry out S1 work
Ever since it was founded, IDENTXX GmbH has been a sought-after partner for research projects. With the projects ?QWERT? and ?PhytoDiag? the company is involved in two innovative projects.
One of the central claims of IDENTXX GmbH is to convert the needs of our customers into analytical services. We have therefore supplemented the molecular tests for herbicide resistance with greenhouse bioassays.
In addition, IDENTXX will be a cooperation partner in the research project ?mauke?
After an intensive three-year concept phase, the idea became an operational company.
In addition to the move to Maybachstrasse 50 in Stuttgart, the range of services was expanded to include resistance analysis of field herbs. In order to make the realignment visible, PathoScan GbR became IDENTXX GmbH.
Since that time, Dr. Frank Br ndle as the supporting force was the task of the managing partner.
The guiding principle of offering tailor-made molecular services for plant production began with the development of a first pilot project for the PCR-based detection of downy mildew fungi. The concept impressed the jury of the state funding program ?Young Innovators? the Ministry for Science, Research and Art Baden-W rttemberg. The PathoScan GbR, based at the University of Hohenheim, was founded thanks to the funding commitment.
