Titan Media introduced an extensive range of Plant Tissue Culture Media includes all those described by White, Murashige and Skoog, Gamborg et.al., schenk and Hilderbrand’s SH medium, and Gamborg’s B-5 medium.
Plant Tissue Culture Media Preparation is based on the unique property of the cell-totipotency. The cell-totipotency is the ability of the plant cell to regenerate into whole plant. In this process the excised bud is transferred into a tube containing a sterile nutrient medium. The success of plant tissue culture media depends very much on the stage of explants selected, the sterilization period and the type of culture media used; different types of plants require different sets of culture media. Plant tissues are grown in vitro on artificial media, which supply the nutrients necessary for growth. The success of plant culture as a means of plant propagation is greatly influenced by the nature of the culture medium used. The rich plant tissue culture media provides a good nutrient source for bacteria and fungi, therefore precautions against microbial contamination must be taken in all in vitro procedures.
Plant Tissue Culture owes its origin to the ideas of the German Scientist, Haberlandt, in the beginning of the 20th century. This was just the beginning of the tissue culture; thereafter in 70's began the commercialization of the technology. Currently the world is revolving around it due to predicated future grain shortage; green house effect and total environmental disbalance.
