seedalive rapid germination test
Germinated Plant Seeds

Efficient and reproducible

Dead or alive?

seedalive-seed viability rapid test. A fast, simple and sound seed viability test.

seedalive has developed a new, efficient and reproducible method to predict the germination of plant seeds. Individual seeds are incubated in a reaction solution for 4 hours.
Then, using AI, it can be quickly and easily determined whether the seed is vital, aging or already dead.

Predictions about the aging process of the seeds and the vigor of the seedlings are also possible.


A result is available after just a few hours and the germination capacity is determined.



The tested seeds can be washed, dried and stored again.



The seedalive test is completely harmless, both for the seeds and for the users.
