Seed Bank and Herbarium Services
Kew can offer world-class consultancy on seed and DNA banking, and on herbarium design and development.
We can also advise on your specialist equipment needs for these facilities. As well as the design specification we can also advise on the development and training requirements for specimen collection programmes to suit your institutional needs. Thus our clients have ranged from governments to extractive companies in creating facilities, process and staff fit for specific purposes.
Our Millennium Seed Bank can also help your organisation through our work on seed germination, storage behaviour and longevity. Our molecular specialists can assist with methods for DNA bar-coding of plants and fungi. As well as this Kew herbarium staff can assist you with advising on plant specimen management and taxonomic classification of collections.
