The aim of this study was to evaluate the new Plantform bioreactor for large scale micropropagation of several Vaccinium cultivars. Micropropagation in the bioreactors was very cost effective by elimination of agar, more plants per unit, less handling due to no positioning of explants in the bioreactor and rooting in the same unit. Ex vitro was facilitated with no agar in the medium and due to aeration of the bioreactor the plant quality was improved.
