FytoScope Chamber 130
Research under controlled growing conditions
About...

FytoScope Chamber FS 130 represents a remarkable combination of a LED¬-based growth chamber and measuring device designed for well-defined cultivation and monitoring of higher plants. It is equipped with a LED-based light panel that provides high-intensity illumination that is controllable in its power, spectral composition and temporal modulation. Temperature and gas atmosphere composition can be constant or varied. The FytoScope has a large, easy-to-read display screen that clearly shows operating parameters and actual values. Intuitive programming allows multiple parameter changes to light intensity, light characteristics, temperature, or humidity.

  • Rapid modulation of irradiance simulating light flecks as well as precise adjustment of the light intensity from 1 to 100 %
  • Other colors LEDs available
  • Digital display for temperature, relative humidity, and lighting intensity readings
  • Independently programmable light composition and dynamics in PAR and NIR LED technology with minimum plant heating

  • Day/night cycle programmable
  • Relative humidity control (optional)
  • Integrated gas mixing system (optional)
  • Incorporated module for measuring chlorophyll fluorescence parameters (optional)
