Prescreen of efficiency of active ingredients
Prescreening is a procedure for the fully automated testing of active ingredients to determine biological effects. In this way, promising substances can be filtered out from a pool of substances.
From the mother plates (microtiter plates), copies – so-called daughter plates – for each fungal disease are produced and inoculated with the spores of the fungal pathogens. Up to 100,000 active ingredients can be tested each year.
