The Ampha P20 is the first fully portable and autonomous pollen analyzer for on-site measurements: in the field and in the greenhouse. It is the optimal device for systematical screening for phenotyping and routine quality control. With dedicated, crop-specific chips we simplify the measurement and data analysis in an unprecedented way.
With its new crop-specific microfluidic chips, the Ampha P20 offers fully automated solutions from the start of the measurement to data analysis. Amphasys currently offers chips for the following crops:
More applications are in development and will follow.
The Ampha P20 is an ideal instrument for the measurement of a large number of samples and for routine measurements wherever they are needed. Main applications are in plant breeding, production research and production.
Instead of bringing your pollen to the lab – you can bring the lab to the field! For the first time, this also allows the analysis of short-lived pollen species such as wheat, rice and corn on-site and enables pollen analysis wherever it is needed. The Ampha P20 enables the optimization of processes at all stages where the viability of pollen is a success factor.
The crop-specific microfluidic chips for the Ampha P20 are programmed with all the settings for fully automatic analysis. Only a few clicks are needed from the start of the instrument to the display of results.
The measurement results are displayed immediately at the end of the measurement. No manual gating and time consuming analysis of scatterplots is necessary. Decisions for further actions can be taken immediately.
The result of the measurement is immediately displayed in numbers on the screen. The full data set including scatterplots obtained in the measurement can be downloaded and post-processed on an external computer with the original AmphaSoft software.
