You may have extensive experience in various aspects of plant imaging, or you may be entirely new to the science. Either way, it is of benefit to discuss your project with fellow scientists who understand exactly what you wish to do, and how your aims may be best achieved. The scientists at Qubit Systems and PSI have collaborated with researchers at numerous universities, research institutes and commercial laboratories throughout the world to ensure that the instrumentation and software they receive meets their requirements precisely. We consult freely, without obligation, and always in the strictest confidence. Call us and chat, or send an email, we’re always happy to help.
The acquisition of a plant phenomics screening system can be a major financial undertaking, and it is critical, therefore, that you plan for both your immediate and future needs. Qubit offers a very wide range of options for phenomics screening, many of which can be added incrementally as your projects evolve. Initially, though, it is important that you consider your requirements carefully:
Click a question, fill in your answers, hit “Submit” at the bottom of this page and your information will be on its way to one of Qubit’s phenomic scientists for evaluation.
This is just a brief checklist, and we would review other issues with you. For example, very complex imaging protocols can take time, reducing throughput, whereas simpler protocols maximize the number of plants you can analyze over a given period. Call us and we will help you to strike the right balance between what is desired and what is possible.
You don’t want high throughput data acquisition to create a bottleneck in low throughput data analysis. Together, Qubit and PSI have a team of programmers that can assist you with all aspects of data acquisition, data analysis and data base management. If you are concerned about any aspect of data
capture or processing, give us a call and we’ll discuss software tools available immediately, and those we may develop for your specific project.
We are plant scientists. We speak your language and we are here to help. Whether you wish to monitor a few trays of seedlings in a cabinet, or an entire plot of crops in the field, we’d be happy to discuss your options to ensure that you are equipped with exactly what you need at the best possible price.
