The G1000 is specifically designed for consistent, uniform seed germination. To accommodate a wide range of seed types the G1000 features a temperature range from +4°C to +40°C – the lower temperatures being advantageous for prechilling to overcome dormancy. The high humidity of the unit (up to 98%) ensures adequate moisture is available for seeds, while the horizontal airflow design ensures excellent temperature and humidity uniformity throughout the growing area. The user adjustable fan speed further enhances airflow control.
Conviron's SR Series seed storage rooms are based on a modular platform. These seed storage rooms are custom sized for each application and are suitable for both long term and medium term collections. Long term seed storage conditions are typically set to minus 18 degrees C while medium term collections are stored at 4 degrees C and 30 to 50% RH. Dehumidification is provided using a chemical dehumidifier. Several different cooling methods are available while complete mechanical system redundancy is also available where required.
The A1000 plant growth chamber offers the unique ability to adapt to four different research applications in an economical equipment platform. The base chamber itself can be fitted with one of four specially configured kits, and each kit is specifically designed for a particular application including: Plant Growth, Arabidopsis, Tissue Culture, and Incubation. By varying the configuration of the airflow, light, and shelving, each kit defines one of the four applications. The A1000 is also available with several options such as phenolic coated coils and network communication.
