Plant and seed research with microfluidics

Higher yields. Healthier crops. Faster variety development. Improved quality control.

Unlock the genotyping, pathogen detection and quality control answers your breeding program depends on.

The Biomark™ X9 System for High-Throughput Genomics delivers cost-effective, comprehensive and scalable sample profiling for PCR and genotyping by sequencing (GBS) studies with minimal operator contribution on a completely new platform.


Faster QTL

Utilize the Biomark X9™ System to identify genetic markers linked to disease resistance, growth and desirable traits by processing up to 192 samples or markers concurrently.

Food safety and

Ensure the authenticity and traceability of all your seeds with rapid and scalable testing methods adaptable to different harvesting seasons.


Identify asymptomatic diseases and pathogens quickly with molecular markers for viroids, bacteria, fungi and more.

Tailored molecular assays for your workflow

Customize assays for molecular-assisted breeding or QC workflows for your specific needs, then adjust assay targets and sample batch sizes on the go: Assays are not fixed or pre-spotted, so can be modified any time as needed.
