Title (EN) INTEGUMENT AND METHOD FOR CULTURING ORGANIC MATERIAL
(FR) TEGUMENT ET PROCEDE POUR LA CULTURE DE SUBSTANCE ORGANIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An integument (50) and related process for the micropropagation of tissue (74) and for the culturing of other organic matter is made of a translucent and semipermeable membrane (12). The integument (50) includes a cellule (72) for completely enclosing and sealing the culture from biological contaminants in the ambient environment. The membrane (12) is impermeable to biological contaminants, but allows for gas exchange between the tissue (74) or microorganism and the ambient environment. The integument (50) and related method provides enhanced growth of tissue and a reduction in culture contamination.
(FR)La présente invention se rapporte à un tégument (50) et à un procédé correspondant servant à la micropropagation de tissus (74) et à la culture d'autres substances organiques, ledit tégument étant constitué par une membrane transparente et semiperméable (12). Ledit tégument (50) comprend une cellule (72) qui entoure entièrement et protège hermétiquement la culture des agents contaminants biologiques se trouvant dans l'environnement ambiant. Ladite membrane (12) est imperméable aux agents contaminants biologiques mais permet l'échange gazeux entre les tissus (74) ou les microorganismes et l'environnement ambiant. Ledit tégument (50) et le procédé correspondant assurent une croissance améliorée des tissus et une réduction du degré de contamination de la culture.
