Walk-in FytoScope FS-WI is a plant growth chamber that utilizes Light Emiting Diodes (LEDs) as a sole light source and thus provides excellent spectral quality with high irradiance for plant physiology applications. Due to versatile construction, the FytoScope may be used for growing of diverse plants: from Arabidopsis to wheat, corn or rice.
Walk-in FytoScope FS-WI enables researchers to maintain controlled growing conditions of temperature and humidity with independent selection of photoperiods. Multifaceted programming options enable simulation of natural conditions including "day/night" cycles with "dawn/dusk" and "cloudy sky" effects. In addition, basic fluorescence parameters can be monitored continuously.
For user convenience both actual inside conditions and target values for temperature, lighting and relative humidity are permanently displayed on the touch screen controller, which is conveniently situated on the front side of the FytoScope. The controller allows a wide range of user programmable options to be selected. Temperature, humidity or day/night timing can be set at the touch of a button. Displayed is also graphical representation of conditions inside the FytoScope. All data can be downloaded to a PC via the USB cable.
