The CIBD presented better results, with average of 6 buds/explants and an average of 4.38 cm shoot length than the CIBL system that had the average of 2.52 buds/explants and average of 1.76 of shoot length.
At the 60 days, it was observed on the CIBD, elongated shoots with multiple green light buds and on the CIBL smaller, oxidized and hyperhydric explants.
The continuous immersion bioreactor in the dark (CIBD) and the temporary immersion bioreactor in the dark (TIBD) did not had statistically difference for the analyzed parameters.
Comparing the meristems culture on solid medium (first experiment) and the CIBD system, it is possible to verify the similar multiplication.
Commenting on South Africa, the CIBD
report states: "Specifically, there is concern whether the public sector has the necessary procurement and delivery capacity to roll out the planned infrastructure investment programme as envisaged, and concern about the ability of the logistics infrastructure (and, in particular, transportation) to cope with demands placed on it."
