Reiskirchen, 19/03/2019 – weisstechnik sets new standards on the market with the fitotron SGC insect and plant growing chambers. The growing chambers ensure reproducible, uniform growth conditions, offer maximum growth height and optimal fitosafe air guiding and varied control and connectivity options. The optional webcam-based remote monitoring of the growing chamber is a highlight.
As a long-standing, reliable partner to laboratories and research facilities, weisstechnik has developed the new fitotron SGC growing chambers precisely to meet customer requirements. They offer precisely controlled, insect- and plant-friendly climate simulation, more convenient and safer operation, as well as a high level of flexibility in use.
Comprehensive standard equipment
Even in the standard version, the fitotron SGC growing chambers are designed to be perfect for up to four racks of Arabidopsis with a growing height of 133 cm. The optimal fitosafe air guiding system with adjustable air speed ensures even transpiration and a good exchange of CO2 and O2. Together with contamination-free humidification, fully desalinated water reliably prevents germ ingress.
Networking and multi-user control
The WEBSeason® Bio interface for easy networking and multi-user control is also included as a standard feature. The Internet connection allows up to five users to access, control or monitor the growing chamber simultaneously: one user at the chamber itself, and four others via PC, tablet or smartphone, for example. A clear 7" colour touch display is fitted as a control panel at an ergonomic working height on the growing chamber itself.
Webcam for remote monitoring
The growing chamber can be fitted with an optional webcam to monitor the plants and insects optimally at all times. It can be positioned freely, and even lets users perform quick visual inspections from home by PC and tablet.
Wide range of options, individual customisation
Other optional extras like high-efficiency fluorescent or LED lighting, a full demineralisation unit or a water-cooled refrigeration unit, allows the growing chambers to be equipped based on the requirements. They are available with one, two or three doors. Thanks to their variable features, they are ideal for different plants, insects and tissue cultures, as well as for drying and storing seeds.
