Ampha P20 - Pollen Analyzer

Pollen Cell Analysis With the Ampha P20

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.

  • new crop-specific microfluidic chips
  • fully automated data analysis
  • easy handling for routine measurements and systematical screening

Pollen Analysis Applications

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:

  • Tomato
  • Pepper
  • Corn
  • Wheat

More applications are in development and will follow.

Application Areas

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.

  • Plant Breeding: Phenotyping of lines directly in the field, Characterization of short-lived pollen species, Immediate results for data-driven decision-making
  • Production Research: Data collection on site: in the field or in the greenhouse, Immediate results for data-driven decision-making, No training in data analysis required
  • Production: Routine check of pollen quality anywhere, Location independent, standardized results, No training in data analysis required, Immediate results for data-driven decision-making


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.

  • Integrated computer & batteries
  • Low transportation weight
  • Robust Case

Ease of Use

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.

  • Integrated touchscreen with operation wizard
  • User-friendly handling
  • Minimal cleaning and rinsing process times

Automated Data Analysis

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.

  • No experience in data analysis needed
  • Immediate results for data-driven decision-making
  • Ideal for systematic screening and routine measurements

Data Download

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.


  • The Ampha P20 requires crop-specific microfluidic chips: one crop, one chip. Amphasys guarantees a lifetime of 1000 measurements per chip.
  • Reagents and Disposables
  • For the safe transport of all necessary materials and tools to the field or greenhouse, Amphasys offers a robust accessories case, identical to the instrument. Its compartmented interior offers well organized space for everything you need to prepare and analyze 100 samples.
