Reach-In FytoScope FS-RI
Research under controlled growing conditions
About...

Reach-in FytoScope FS-RI 1600 is a plant growth chamber that utilizes Light Emiting Diodes (LEDs) as a sole light source. Thus excellent spectral quality with high irradiance is provided for plant physiology applications. Due to versatile construction, these FytoScopes may be used for growing of diverse plants: from Arabidopsis to wheat, corn or rice.

Reach-in FytoScope FS-RI 1600 enables the researcher to maintain controlled growing conditions of temperature and humidity with independent selection of photoperiods. Multifaceted programming options enable researchers to simulate natural conditions.

Key Features

  • Lighting: adjustable in intensity (from 0 % to 100 %), timing, modulation, and diurnal cycling
  • Temperature: adjustable from +10 °C +40 °C (optionally minimum 0 °C)
  • Relative humidity adjustable from 40 % to 80 % (independent on light intensity)
  • Two tiers with illumination; one additional space at the bottom
  • LED technology with minimum undesired plant heating
  • White LED illumination with supplementary FAR LEDs for excellent plant growth
  • PPFD up to 400 µmol.m-2.s-1 at the distance of 50 cm (optionally, at the upper shelf, up to 1,200 µmol.m-2.s-1 at the distance of 50 cm)


  • Rapid modulation of irradiance simulating light flecks
  • Precise adjustment of the light intensity from 1 to 100 %
  • Homogeneous illumination over the whole cultivation area of 0.45 m2(in one tiers)
  • No "wind" effect - homogeneous and almost laminar air exchange
  • Adjustable shelving
  • Wheels for easy moving
  • Approximate inside capacity: 900 L
  • For extra protection of investigated plants, the FytoScope features both hardware and software protection against undesired overheating of the inside environment
  • Incorporated measuring of chlorophyll fluorescence (optional)

Reach-In FytoScope FS-RI


Reach-in FytoScope FS-RI 1600 is a plant growth chamber that utilizes Light Emiting Diodes (LEDs) as a sole light source. Thus excellent spectral quality with high irradiance is provided for plant physiology applications. Due to versatile construction, these FytoScopes may be used for growing of diverse plants: from Arabidopsis to wheat, corn or rice.

Reach-in FytoScope FS-RI 1600 enables the researcher to maintain controlled growing conditions of temperature and humidity with independent selection of photoperiods. Multifaceted programming options enable researchers to simulate natural conditions. Controlled parameters are: temperature, humidity and illumination with independent selection of photoperiods. A full range of "day/night" cycles with "dawn/dusk" and "cloudy sky" effects can be programmed. In addition, incorporated Fluorescence Module (optional) enables continuous measuring of basic fluorescence parameters in grown plants.

For user convenience both actual inside conditions and target values for temperature, lighting and relative humidity are permanently displayed on the touch screen controller, which is conveniently situated on the front side of the FytoScope. The controller allows wide range of user programmable options to be selected. Temperature, humidity or day/night timing can be set at the touch of a button. Displayed is also graphical representation of conditions inside the FytoScope. All data can be downloaded to a PC via the USB cable.
