1 CropSustaIn WP4: Technological modernisation of research facilities Irena Mavrič Pleško

2 To upgrade KIS laboratories To achieve technological modernisation of research equipment in order to retain competitiveness Objectives

3 Background Good basic research infrastructure at KIS There is some need for modernisation in order to be in line with new technologies and research KIS prepared a list of 13 pieces of equipment to be purchased in the first two years of the project duration – 9 pieces in the first year and 4 pieces in the second year

4 The procedure According to local legislation Three categories according to the net price EUR – issue of ordering document EUR – tender published electronically at web portal (Portal javnih naročil) over EUR – tender published electronically at web portal (Portal javnih naročil) – more complicated procedure

5 Category 1 equipment (limit EUR) 5 pieces of equipment: qPCR – upgrade of the instrument Bioanalyser Portable chlorophyll fluorometer Measuring equipment for estimating power consumption of tractor powered spraying machines PC server (second year) If possible we need three offers from equipment providers Decission for the best-quality-for-the-price Purchase, instalation, training

6 Category 2 equipment (limit EUR) 5 pieces of equipment: Microscope binocular + digital visualization Equipment for pesticide application Capilary electrophoresis -140°C freezer (second year) Instrument for fast analysis of grape, must and wine (second year) More complicated and longer procedure Estimated time for decission – about 2 months Decission for the best-quality-for-the-price Contract, delivery, instalation, training

7 Category 3 equipment (over EUR) 3 pieces of equipment: Microscope (Nomarski) + 3D reconstruction + digital visualization Ultra high performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) + ENVI software – tender on European portal Some additional requests Estimated time for decission – about 3 months Decission for the best-quality-for-the-price Contract, delivery, installation, training

8 Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) Non-invasive method for disease detection and plant stress studies The system detects reflected or emitted electromagnetic energy from the objects Each object has a unique distinctive spectral signature Continuous spectral data is obtained in the wavelength of the HSI detector NEO, Norway

9 Hyperspectral imaging The system with two cameras of different wavelengths – nm and nm The system can be used in laboratory and field experiments and can be upgraded for aerial photography Experimental fields: Diagnosis of plant diseases Biotic and abiotic plant stress research For the analysis of multispectral satelite images 091X

10 Persons responsible for each piece of equipment The tenders will be prepared for each piece of equipment according to technical needs After installation the training will be prepared by the provider Training of all interested personnel from KIS by provider or experienced staff from KIS

11 Reporting For each piece of equipment we will deliver a report on the new acquisitions and the related sessions Details on the procedure and selection of the provider Delivery and instalation Training

12 Activities Some activities already started Study of the legislation and geting familiar with the procedures Studies of the market We already have the first offers in our hands First expected deliveries and instalations probably in the beginning of next year

13 Thank you!
