ECOR Plant Laboratory

The ECOR-Plant Lab holds 8 growth chambers of three types, excellent for plant experiments controlling day length, light variables, temperature (including freeze tolerance), humidity, CO2 levels, watering regimes, and other factors. The lab space provides ample work space and equipment for wet and dry sample preparation and processing.

4 Large Reach-In Plant Growth Chambers (Percival Scientific PGC-40L2X)

Key Features

  • Light Control (dimmable, up to 900 µmol/m2/s)
  • Temperature Control (10-44 degrees C)
  • CO2 level Control
  • Humidity Control
  • Programming of Environmental Controls (ex. day/night or complex cycles)
  • Remote communications, allowing monitoring and programming capabilities from remote locations

2 Low-temperature Growth Chambers (Percival Scientific LT-36VLC8)

low temperature growth chambers

These chambers are frequently used to measure cold hardiness, freeze tolerance, heat stress and exposure to a series of temperatures.

Key Features

  • Great for studies measuring cold hardiness, freeze tolerance, heat stress, and exposure to temperatures
  • Light Control (up to 300 µmol/m2/s)
  • Temperature Control (-10 to 44 degrees C)
  • Exterior observation doors
  • Programming of Environmental Controls (day/night or complex cycles)

2 Smaller Plant Growth/Germination Chambers with high-output light (Percival Scientific E41VLHO)

Key Features

  • High Output Light (1000 µmol/m2/s 6” from lamps)
  • Temperature (10-44±0.5 degrees C)
  • Humidity
  • Programming of Environmental Controls (ex. day/night or complex cycles)
