Vivent, a Swiss-based bio-signal pioneer have invented an innovative range of devices for exploring and monitoring electrical signals in plants
These devices capture bio-signals that plants themselves are transmitting.
In real time, monitor plants’ responses to their environment, in the lab, greenhouse or outside.
Researchers in academic institutions or commercial organisations can now easily, and in all conditions, monitor electrical signals emitted by plants as they change physiological states or respond to environmental influences, such as: light quality or quantity, moisture in the soil or air, nutrient levels, exposure to chemicals, heat or cold, insect attacks or disease.
By characterizing transient signals, normal and abnormal behaviors can be compared.
By facilitating and accelerating this important work Phytl Signs hopes to contribute to increasing global food production and safety, in an environmentally sustainable manner.
