Pollen Count

Counting pollen as part of a pollen dispersion, pollen potential or pollen emission analysis is the standard method for calculating the number of males needed for optimal pollination. 

An accepted method relies on collecting the pollen in Isoton media for preservation and counting with a Coulter Counter. The comparison between the Ampha Z32 and the Coulter counter shows that besides providing viability data, the Ampha Z32 can at the same time also be used to rapidly count large amounts of pollen.
