One of Iribov’s specialties is the multiplication of the whole chromosome set of the plant by chromosome doubling. Higher ploidy levels results often in improved plant architecture and larger flowers. It is also used to overcome sterility caused by an unequal amount of chromsome sets or interspecific hybridization.
For many crops Iribov has efficient protocols to increase the ploidy level. With the aid of flow cytometry the ploidy level of crops is measured with very high accuracy and in a very early stage.
For a lot of crops we can produce tetraploids for a fixed price.
