Multi-environment climate chambers

PSI-walk-in-faytoscope-5-1920x1280

NPEC’s multi-environment module will host a series of 15 small climate chambers with the highest level of homogeneity in temperature, humidity and light intensity available.

These 15 top-end climate chambers will enable researchers to experimentally change environmental parameters with sufficient independent replication to draw robust conclusions on how these parameters affect the plant phenotype. Nine chambers will provide an above-average range in temperature (10-40°C), humidity (35-90% RH) and light intensity (up to 500 µmol/m2/s). In addition, 3 chambers will allow continuous plant growth at temperatures as low as -5°C and 3 are outfitted so that they can mimic sunlight in both light intensity (2000 µmol/m2/s) and light quality (9 independently-controlled color channels).

These research facilities will take the research field of environmental plant biology in the Netherlands to the next level. The Multi-environment climate chambers will be realised by Photon Systems Instruments.
