Sucrose is very often used as a carbon source in in vitro culture. The compound contains one molecule each of a-D-glucose and ß-D-fructose.
This product is specified for analysis and has been tested for its macro and micronutrient content. Therefore, this variant is recommended for in vitro applications in which these must be known in high precision - e.g. for examinations of nutrient deficiency symptoms. However, for already established cultivation techniques or commercial micropropagation, other types like regular household sugar, can already show a sufficient purity.
