SCREEN Chamber

(sorry the installation is booked out)

SCREEN Chamber
Installation for: small plants
Environmental monitoring: temperature, humidity, light, intensity/quality, CO2-concentration
Parameters: leaf area, leaf growth, chlorophyll, fluorescence, surface temperature
Capacity: >2500 plants
Average experiment duration: 4-6 weeks

The setup consists of two growth chambers with controlled environmental conditions. In each chamber a robot is installed that delivers trays with potted plants to dedicated measurement devices. The system is dedicated to small plants such as Arabidopsis thaliana (Jansen et al., FPB 2009). An automated handling device allows transfer of plants on trays from one growth chamber to the other allowing experiments including rapid switches to growth conditions constituting experimental treatments.
