Microflor and propagation: a look behind the scenes
More than 30 years ago, Microflor decided to build its own plant tissue culture lab. Doing so allowed us to work independently from manufacturers and guarantee the highest quality products and a reliable supply to clients. Over the years, the lab has transformed into a hub for innovation. Read on to discover the secrets of our success.
Until the 1980s, Microflor—a subsidiary of Floré Group —relied on several plant tissue culture labs for the supply of different plant varieties. However, plant quality and supply schedules were sometimes less than ideal. The solution? To build an in-house plant tissue culture lab.
The client at the core
Microflor’s very own production lab was completed in 1985. While most other labs were operating as research institute spin-offs at that time and were therefore located rather far from plant growers, Microflor’s lab did the opposite and positioned itself as a client-centred, accessible and flexible partner.
Raising the bar
The new lab helped create space for research on innovative tissue culture techniques and ongoing optimisation processes, such as the acclimatisation of young plants, which now takes place on site. Microflor sets the bar high: we send feedback to our lab about any issues we encounter so we can resolve these issues as a single team.
The production team only uses methods and techniques that advance the quality of our plants. Over the years, we have invested heavily in state-of-the-art lab facilities and a team of highly driven experts. Everyone at Microflor is seriously committed to finding solutions for improved tissue culture methods, and they are not afraid to think outside the box. They combine experience with new insights and work closely together with a number of knowledge centres.
At Microflor, we strongly believe that there is always room for improvement. When a problem arises, our team of experts see this as a new opportunity. Existing techniques always lead to new possibilities. We are able to innovate through our vast array of expertise, knowledge and skills. But at the same time, we try to keep our solutions simple so everything remains affordable for our clients and their businesses can flourish, too!
