FytoScope Chamber 360
Research under controlled growing conditions
About...

FytoScope Chamber FS 360 is designed for well-defined growing and monitoring of higher plants. FytoScope is a growth chamber that is accessible from the top. The lid is equipped with a LED-based light panel that provides high-intensity illumination that is controllable in its power, spectral composition and temporal modulation. The FytoScope has a large, easy-to-read display screen which clearly shows operating parameters and actual values. Intuitive programming allows multiple parameter changes to light intensity, light characteristics, temperature, or humidity.

Key Features

  • Growth chamber with inside capacity of 360 l
  • Accessible from the top
  • Precise control over the light mode, intensity, and timing
  • White + far-red LEDs


  • Higher light intensity and temperature as an option
  • Accurate temperature control
  • Wider temperature range as an option

Accessories


Shaker SHK-2013

Bench-scale orbital shaker with loading capacity of 5 kg. Rotation speed: 30-500 RPM. Dimension (D x W x H): 375 x 320 x 125 mm; weight: 8 kg. Non-skid rubber mat included - suitable for small lightweight containers or Petri dishes and low speed rotation. Tray with sticky matting or Erlenmeyer attachments are recommended for Erlenmeyer flasks shaking with high speed rotation.


Tray with Sticky Matting

Stainless tray with sticky matting for safe fastening of various types and sizes of culture vessels. The tray is easily installed onto the shaker SHK-2013 top part.

50-ml Erlenmeyer Attachment

Accessory to Shaker SHK-2013: attachment for up to 14 Erlenmeyer flasks with a size of 50 ml.

100-ml Erlenmeyer Attachment

Accessory to Shaker SHK-2013: attachment for up to 9 Erlenmeyer flasks with a size of 100 ml.

250-ml Erlenmeyer Attachment

Accessory to Shaker SHK-2013: attachment for up to 5 Erlenmeyer flasks with a size of 250 ml.

500-ml Erlenmeyer Attachment

Accessory to Shaker SHK-2013: attachment for up to 4 Erlenmeyer flasks with a size of 500 ml.

1000-ml Erlenmeyer Attachment

Accessory to Shaker SHK-2013: attachment for up to 2 Erlenmeyer flasks with a size of 1000 ml.

Light Upgrade for FS 360

Illumination upgrade provides light intensity up to 500 µmol(photon)/m2.s. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Light Upgrade CANNOT be used together with the Temperature Upgrade.

Temperature Upgrade

Enables reaching low cultivation temperatures. Temperature range: +7 to +55 ºC. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Temperature Upgrade CANNOT be used together with the Light Upgrade.

Fluorescence Module

Module for measuring standard chlorophyll fluorescence parameters (FT, QY, etc.) in grown plants.

Additional Protective Glasses

Radiation safety glasses protecting against excessive LED radiation – equipped with side cover and protective filters. One pair of glasses is provided with the device free of charge.

User-Defined Custom Protocol

Optional feature to programming AlgaeTron illumination: when uploaded to the device, this Protocol can support up to 224 light phase intervals, each defined by light intensity and duration.

Daylight Protocol

The Daylight Protocol serves for cloudy skies simulations - several adjustable parameters. Includes also additional program for "cloud visualization" on a PC.

High-Precision Gas Mixing System GMS 150

The standard version GMS 150 includes two channels (channel 1 for Air-N2; channel 2 for CO2). Preferably it is intended for use with PSI Multi-Cultivators, small-volume Photobioreactors, large-volume Photobioreactors and Growth Chambers. High-precision GMS 150 can optionally hold up to four channels.
