Collaborations and services

With 40 years of expertise, the PHYTOTEC platform puts its equipment at your disposal within the framework of collaborations or private contracts with respect of confidentiality clauses.

We are open to all types of plant cultivation and our know-how extends from Arabidopsis to Beech.

The experimental conditions can vary with precision in a large range and the good sealing of our chambers guarantees the best conditions for the enrichment in 13CO2.

The definition of the customer’s needs (experimental conditions; report…) is established by successive contacts. They are translated into technical requirements for our team. These elements are formalized on ad hoc forms for each experiment. These records are archived. They can be completed by the drafting of specifications and the signing of a service contract. 13C
