PollenAid Mixing Instructions

Correct procedures for mixing PollenAid®

For mixing PollenAid®:

1. Use only deionised water that has been stored in new food grade plastic drums. Water should be deionised to less than 1.0 microseimens per centilitre. Read the label on the concentrate pack.
2. Mix enough PollenAid® suspension medium for one day of spraying.
- Measure the required amount of PollenAid® suspension medium into the Kiwi Pollen mixer.
3. Add the appropriate amount of thawed pollen carefully to the surface of the PollenAid® medium.
4. Agitate rapidly for 10 minutes or until a uniform suspension is obtained.
- Important: Because pollen is a living cell, all of the pollen suspension must be used within one hour of mixing.
5. Add the marker dye to the PollenAid® suspension medium after the pollen is mixed.

For suspending pollen in PollenAid®:

  • Recommended mixing rates: 4g pollen per litre of PollenAid (see Mixing Rate Table for more detail)
  • If more than 4g of pollen per litre is required, the amount of PollenAid® concentrate has to be increased proportionately (for example, 8g pollen per litre requires 40 ml of PollenAid® concentrate for every litre of deionised water).
