The right light for the right plant
Light is a key factor in plant tissue culture. With 10 years experience of working closely with horticultural partners around the world, VANQ offers a wide range of lighting solutions tailored to meeting the unique needs of every tissue culture producer. With LED lighting, the spectral output of grow light can be tuned, which makes it possible to apply the optimum “light recipe” for different kind of crops.
LED lighting also produces an extremely uniform light distribution. This means that all cuttings, whether at the edge of the shelf or the center, receive the same light, and all cuttings grow at the same rate and to the same shape. In addition, LED lighting uses very little electrical energy compared to fluorescent (TL) systems – up to 60% less. And because it produces hardly any heat, the lamps can be placed very close to the plants, reducing the shelf-light height, which means that more growing layers can be stacked in the same space. Moreover, LED’s high reliability means less repairing and no breakage concerns.
