NPEC’s Ecotron facility at Utrecht University consists of a range of 36 fully closed and controlled mesocosm systems that allow for real-life plant (agro-) ecosystem analyses in real time.
Plant-Microbe Interaction Phenotyping
The Plant-Microbe-Interaction Phenotyping Module consists of two independent phenotyping installations designed for high-throughput phenotyping of the plant shoot (Helios) and in-vitro root system (Hades).
Multi-Environment Climate Chambers
NPEC’s Multi-Environment Climate Chambers Module will host a series of 15 small climate chambers with the highest level of homogeneity in temperature, humidity, and light intensity available.
High-Throughput Phenotyping Climate Chamber
The climate cells in this research module can be used to analyse thousands of plants in a single experiment.
The fully automated NPEC greenhouse is equipped with conveyors and gantries to collect large scale phenotypic data.
The NPEC Open Field module consists of one easily transportable vehicle, the TraitSeeker and three UAVs, all equipped with state-of-the-art sensors.
