Development of the MPOB Fast Transfer Technique (MoFaTT) system for maintenance and maturation of oil palm culture aggregates

Author(s): AHMAD TARMIZI Hashim* ; ZAITON Rasul*

The MPOB Fast Transfer Technique (MoFaTT) in Liquid Culture System was developed as a rapid and convenient method for liquid media replenishment during maintenance and maturation of cultures. The system was developed with the aim to further improve the efficiency of the liquid culture system. Oil palm cultures can be maintained for three to four months, and replenishment of medium can be done on the shaker at any desired time. The usefulness of the MoFaTT is not just the rate of multiplication or proliferation of cultures but also the efficiency of the system compared to the conventional maintenance of cultures in individual shake flasks. Some of the benefits offered are a reduction in medium replenishment steps and the time consumed, on-site medium replenishment and improved practicality of the system
