QUANTIFICATION OF PLANT HORMONES
The Plant Hormone Quantification Service quantifies hormones using UHPLC-mass spectrometry equipment (Q-Exactive, ThermoFisher Scientific) installed at the IBMCP, capable of quantifying plant hormones in samples of only 50 mg of fresh matter and concentrations below 0.1 ng/g. To date, this service has carried out analyzes of gibberellins (GAs), auxins (IAA), jasmonic acid (JA), salicylic acid (SA), abscisic acid (ABA) and cytokinins (CKs) for a large number of research groups. of the Spanish scientific community and has established collaborations with groups from other countries.
