Growth Chamber

growthchamberFor incubation of plant samples during microscopy there is a Conviron A1000 growth chamber situated close to the microscopes. It is fully programmable (commonly used for simulating 16hrs daylight or continuous light) and contains 4 shelves. The light intensity for each shelf can be set independently. The interior environment of the chamber is monitored continuously and minute-by-minute logging of the interior environment allows users to troubleshoot any problems during their experiment. Furthermore airflow is distributed from each shelf in a way that prevents temperature overshoot when opening or closing the door.
