Field and Greenhouse Root Analysis
There are applications where plants must be grown in soil, either in Field or
Greenhouse. For those situations, we offer a washed root imaging and analysis service.
Ship us your washed root systems overnight and we will image and analyse the roots
for you. We can give you next day delivery of spreadsheet analysis data, or a full
written report in a matter of days.
Below are two example studies that we have done for clients.
Professor Emanuel Dzantor of Tennessee State University has graciously allowed us to
show the results of an architectural analysis of washed roots study of Prarie Grass.
The below image shows Root System Architecture (RSA) Signature for
Total Root Crossings. The signatures on the left are for plants grown in
pH 4.5 conditions. The signatures on the right are for plants grown in
pH 6.5 conditions. This allows a quick comparison of plants under
to see results of
Phenotype Screening Corporation's study done for Professor Dzantor.

For Maize, Soybean, Cotton, and some Grasses the below example pricing for a lot of ten root systems applies.
Note that x-ray imaging and analysis to a spreadsheet of root system properties is
included in the $750 per lot of ten Imaging and Root Analysis price. A Statistical Analysis of the Data
and preparation of a summary presentation is an additional $1000.
