Anybody created true potato seed?

Has anybody harvested the berries post flowering on a potato plant and managed to dry and germinate seed.

It'll be an heirloom strain that I've been invited to work with and will start next year.  Any advice or stories of success or failure will be welcomed.

Cheers in advance.

@swam_pi yes that's also a possibility but it's something I'd imagine doing later down the line following an open pollination.  If we could find a suitable donor for tissue culture I'd give it a go but most of the seed tuber stock is getting old in terms of generations and it's time for a fresh start I reckon.  Have you done any of the tissue culture mate,  I know you're cracking on with the micro herbs and stuff yourself.....
