For testing hybrid purity (inbred-percentage) in many varieties and many different crops we have been using protein-based Ultra Thin Layer Iso Electric Focus (UTLIEF) protein electrophoresis for many years. This has proven to be very (cost-)effective. Once a marker has been identified it is hard to compete with our protein electrophoresis system regarding speed of analysis and price. Protein electrophoresis can also be used for breeding support, e.g. by grouping of individual plants based on similar protein profiles. We can perform this testing in our facility, but we are also able to provide you with our protocols and gels, and can support you in setting up your own (protein)lab.
Quality control: our lab has a long-standing reputation in the field of quality control. We have a variety of reputable methods available and there are numerous applications. A few of these applications are named below but many more are conceivable:
