Article Title: Autonomic system for vitrocultures illumination
Authors: Pop L., Cachiţă D., Turcuş V.

Abstract: In this experiment we assembled a photovoltaic panel from recycled solar cells and have used it, with an accumulator and a timer, as power supply for a LED-based growth box for in vitro cultures, trying this way to eliminate the consumption of electric energy used in biotechnological vitroconservation process. In order to test the efficiency of this system, we used Solanum tuberosum L. inocula as biological material and, within 8 weeks, we found that this project can be adapted, improved and successfully used in plant biotechnology area. The obtained green power could be used to reduce the electricity expenses for vitrocultures to almost zero, especially in the conservation domain, where, for illumination, is not necessary to have a bright light.
Keywords: vitroculture, LED, Solanum tuberosum L., green power, photovoltaic, recycled
