Amino acids are commonly known as vital parts of our body and nutrition. Naturally, our bodies are not the only ones who demand amino acids. Animals and plants also need these acids for a healthy and strong growth. Plants develop them through synthesizing the primary elements carbon, oxygen and hydrogen.

Fruit plants and trees are also subjected to PTC. They are modified to ensure faster growth and produce better tasting fruits

These yellow raspberries are a good example of fruits that are modified through plant tissue culture.

Carbon and oxygen can be obtained from air, and hydrogen can be obtained from water in the soil. Plants only use the L-amino acids. Similar to the effects amino acids have on humans, providing these acids in the nutrition of plants will increase their growth and strength too. Due to these benefits, amino acids are commonly used by labs and farmers to increase and improve production results.

At Lab Associates we offer, among others, the following amino acids:

  • Asparagine
  • Cysteine
  • Glutamine
  • Lysine
  • Valine

Micropropagation is producing a clone of, for example, a lemon tree that produces very good fruits.
