Cultivation Banks

Cultivation Banks serve for precisely controlled plant cultivation and comparison studies. Cultivation Banks are intended to be arranged in a Climatized Cultivation Room, which is not part of the Cultivation Banks but may be provided on request. The Banks arrangement enables multiple experimental setups in one cultivation space. Every single Bank offers possibility of different light and temperature regime, which makes them very suitable for multiple or parallel experiments. Temperature inside the Banks can be regulated in the range of +2 to +12 °C above the Cultivation Room temperature (optionally up to +20 °C above the Cultivation Room temperature). In standard version, illumination may be controlled up to 250 µmol(photon).m-2.s-1 at the distance of 30 cm (higher light intensities on request).
