LemnaTec GmbH (new, since 7/19)

With the acquisition of LemnaTec, Nynomic AG is entering a new high-growth market segment within the photonics industry. Since 1998, LemnaTec has established itself as a world-leading specialist for hardware and software systems in the field of digital plant phenotyping and high-throughput screening. Digital phenotyping measures the external appearance of plants in terms of size, shape and color as characteristics for shoot and root growth, productivity and quality. Physiological parameters such as the water and nutrient content of the leaves or photosynthesis are also recorded. Through the application of LemnaTec’s highly complex, non-invasive sensor and automation technologies, the plants are analyzed contact-free, so that each individual plant can be repeatedly examined and continuous information about the development and health status of the plants is acquired. Main application areas of plant phenotyping at LemnaTec are in agrochemistry, agronomy, plant research and plant breeding, and range from small applications in the laboratory to large-scale installations for greenhouses and open fields. LemnaTec’s solutions for measurement and evaluation of plant phenotypes and their varieties enable customized solutions for industrial corporations such as Corteva, BASF and Bayer Crop Science as well as for international research institutions and universities. In addition to plant analysis, LemnaTec also provides analytical methods for detection of plant diseases as well as infestation by insects and other animals, which often occur as pathogens of plants. Solutions for digital seed testing developed by LemnaTec do provide valuable services in the seed industry and for gene banks in determining germination rate, germination quality and seed quality. LemnaTec GmbH, with more than 20 employees at the Aachen location, is expected to generate sales of EUR 5 to 7 million in the first full financial year 2020. *
