For accelerated reproduction of plants our client contacted with us for obtaining seedlings by the microcloning method. For example, the tree seedlings are obtained within 4-7 years by the use of traditional method of propagation.

Plant microcloning methods allows you to speed up the process 2,0-2,5 times. We have a developed protocol for accelerated plant reproduction and a well-equipped biotechnology laboratory.
