Viability Testing

Guidelines for Tetrazolium Tests

Hi, all. 

We are going to be doing tetrazolium testing for viability with Apios priceana and Physaria globosa in the near future. However, I am finding it difficult to acquire full procedures for tetrazolium tests that are genera or family specific. I did find a PDF for one of the three published procedures for plants in the Fabaceae from the Association of Seed Analysts, but am unsure if it is the right one. I have yet to find access to any protocols for seeds from plants in the Brassicaceae.
