Quality conscious representatives of the seed industry join European ASTEC workshop

ASTEC introduced an upgraded software module. It makes analysing germination curves on Oxygen deprived seeds an easy job. This in combination with the Q2 hardware and the new 0 and 100% standard Oxygen measurements.
