Our Pet-Plant Story

The beginning of PCT.

In 1993, Plant Cell Technology ( PCT ) began to market a fun and interactive toy called “Pet Plant”. Pet Plant was a live plant growing in tissue culture media that parents and children could nurture and watch grow.

The toy was a hit, but it had one problem: contamination. Many of the pet plants would become contaminated with fungus, bacteria, and mold.

After a year of research and tests of solutions in our lab, in collaboration with Dr. Assaf Guri, we developed an all-rounder anti-contamination solution called Plant Preservative Mixture (PPM™).

Since then, our mission is to help thousands of people, in tissue culture organization, by providing innovative quality products and services and solve all the tissue culture challenges.

Our Featured Products

What our Customer says about PCT!

“When I began in vitro cultures, I needed to find a protectant that would help prevent contamination in my Media. Then this marvellous product came along! Even better, there is no need to open the containers to be autoclaved against bacteria and Fungi, PPM can be autoclaved with the Media, and that was the best part. I ‘am a professional agricultural technician and I totally recommend using PPM to cultivate in-vitro plants.” -- @shiner420tc

“To date, PPM is the only biocide that has made it possible for me to recover contaminated cultures and clean them to establish their culture. It’s a keystone of keeping my business growing towards being a legitimate tissue culture lab.” --Michael

“It does help a lot to get quick results, it will encourage you to keep working in the lab with new plants. Only 1cc/L added to the culture made a big difference in the contamination rate.” – Eliseo Teson
