PlantCon™ Starter Kits Ready-to-use for Plant Culture

Plant research often involves growing new plants in a controlled environment

PlantCon™ containers from MP Biomedicals can reduce the time spent preparing an in vitro growth environment for plant cultures and can help minimize the risk of contamination.

The design of the cover and base ensures optimal light transmission and a perfect fit to prevent contamination during plant cultures. Moreover the vented cover can be snapped on tight, for long-term culture, or loosely fitted during acclimation to external conditions prior to transplantation.


  • Specifically designed for plant cell culture
  • Scientifically engineered for optimal growth
  • Exceptional light transmission
  • Clear, unbreakable PVC plastic
  • Sterilized by ethylene oxide gas treatment
  • Convenient and stackable to save on space
  • Tops and bottoms are available separately


Choose from three different cell growth media, included with the starter kit:


Cat. No. Description
092672526 20 container sets w/10 L Murashige & Skoog media
092672626 20 container sets w/10 L Gamborg B5 media
092672726 20 container sets w/10 L Chu N6 media


Powdered media above includes vitamins, macro and micro nutrients and are mixed with water. PlantCon™ containers may be used with liquid or agar solidified media.


PlantCon™ containers can be used in the following applications:

  • Aseptic germination of seeds or spores.
    • Stage I - production of clean explant for multiplication of callus formation
    • Stage II - multiplication of plants through enhanced axillary branching, adventitious buds, embryoids or callus.
    • Stage III - pre-transplant rooting and hardening of plantlets for transfer to soil.
  • As a shipping container for pre-transplant plantlets.
