Two new gantries installed in NPEC greenhouse
10 November 2020
On November 4-5, our partner SMO has delivered and installed two gantries in the NPEC greenhouse. These gantries have a length of 11 meters and span the total surface of two compartments in the greenhouse. The gantries will each be equipped with 2 Phenospecs PlantEye scanners allowing multispectral imaging and 3D scanning of plants. In addition, thermal cameras will be mounted to the gantries giving the possibility of high-resolution thermal imaging of plants in the NPEC greenhouse.
One of the compartments where the gantries are installed will also contain a PlantDitech Plantarry System, allowing to combine multispectral- and thermal imaging with gravimetric phenotyping to study plant water household.

We are happy to announce the arrival of NPEC’s Helios phenotyping facility for the quantitive description of shoot architectural traits and the localisation and quantification of fluorescent proteins expressed by plant shoots or associated microorganisms.Read more
Together with our partner, Photon Systems Instruments, we are currently finalising the designs for the NPEC’s high-throughput in vitro root phenotyper, the Hades. The system will enable quantitive description of root growth and architecture, and the localisation and quantification of fluorescent proteins expressed by plant roots or by root-associated microorganisms.Read more
