Arabidopsis Chamber - AR-66L3

This Percival® Scientific Arabidopsis Chamber is specifically designed to facilitate the growth of Arabidopsis plants. Achieve the perfect conditions for growing your Arabidopsis plants to maturity within this chamber. The two tiers of constructed shelves allow for a maximum growing height of 20.8” per tier, providing your plants with adequate space for healthy growth. Control interior conditions like humidity, CO2 and temperature by utilizing the IntellusUltra™ controller. The controller can be used in four program modes and also controls the lighting events inside the chamber.

 

 

Product Description

Applications

  • This chamber is frequently used for Arabidopsis thaliana, Brassica sp., lettuce, spinach and other plants with lower light intensity requirements
  • Many other applications exist for this product

Percival’s IntellusUltra Controller

  • Percival Scientific has built a reputation of providing flexible, customized options for research scientists around the world. We have taken this philosophy to the next level with our improved IntellusUltra Controller. Now choose from the levels of functionality that meet your research needs.

Lighting System

  • Each tier of shelves is lighted by cool white fluorescent lamps and incandescent lamps properly spaced for uniform light intensity over entire shelf
  • Intensity programmable up to 275 micromoles/m2/sec of light irradiance measured at 6” from lamps on 3 on/off light events
  • Two levels of programming of fluorescent lighting and one level of programming of incandescent lighting
  • Programming and control of the lighting is done via IntellusUltra real time controller

Airflow/Circulation

  • Air circulation inside chamber is from a specifically designed air diffuser (air travels along entire back wall, over the shelves and returns to the ceiling fans through an opening between the light fixtures and the doors)

Cabinet Construction

  • 26-gauge smooth galvanized white side walls and top reinforced with 24-gauge backer plates
  • Interior floor constructed of 24-gauge #304-4 stainless steel
  • 24-gauge smooth white galvanized exterior
  • NSF compliant seam design
  • Overall wall thickness is 2”
  • Foamed-in-place non-CFC insulation
  • One 1 1/4” diameter access port on the right hand wall
  • Chamber floor equipped with floor drain and hose assembly
  • Contains caster assembly and adjustable leveling legs to compensate for floor unevenness in the lab

Insulation

  • Woodless construction using CFC free insulation (overall wall thickness is 2”, ample insulation for maintenance of stated temperature range

Doors

  • Two doors each with an opening of 29.1” x 57.5” providing full access to chamber interior (magnetic gasket provides a tight seal to door frame)

Interior Space

  • 62.4 cu.ft. with work area of 30.4 sq.ft. provided on three tiers

Shelving

  • Three tiers of 22 -gauge stainless steel with no perforations (each tier is 24”D x 30.4”W)
  • Shelves are vertically adjustable in 1/2” increments
  • Maximum growing height is 11.3” per tier

Finish

  • Interior and exterior painted with high reflective, environmentally friendly, high temperature baked white powder coating

Convenience Receptacles

  • Two 115/1/60 convenience receptacles provided inside chamber

Electrical Requirements

  • Consult Geneva Scientific for electrical requirements and amperage draw.

Refrigeration

  • Self-contained air-cooled condensing unit with hot gas bypass system for continuous compressor operation, extended life and close temperature control (this continuous running condensing unit ensures precise temperature control by alternating cycling refrigerant and hot gas to coil; this also prolongs life of compressor, and eliminates risk of ice buildup in coil)
  • Solenoid valves have extended stem for quiet and long life operation
  • Ceiling mounted evaporator coils incorporate five air circulation fans in aluminum housing

Temperature Range

  • 10-44C (+/- 1C) with lights on and 4-44C (+/- 0.5C) with lights off

Temperature Safety Limit Controls

  • Experiment Protection: Adjustable high and low temperature controls, audible alarms, and visual indicators provided
  • Controls shut down all power to chamber, activating alarms (when the temperature returns to the normal range the system will automatically reset)

Options

  • Additive Humidity Control with Sensor
  • Dehumidifier with Sensor
  • IntellusUltra Connect
  • Android-Based Touch Screen
  • CO2 Enrichment Package
  • Self-Contained Water-Cooled Condensing Unit
  • Dry Alarm Contacts
  • Dimmable Lighting
  • LED Lighting in Lieu of Fluorescent Lamps
  • Please contact us for more optional items
