S GC 120 Arabidopsis

SGC 120 Arabidopsis Chamber

The Fitotron® SGC 120 Arabidopsis Chamber is centred on core attributes of flexibility and user-friendliness. Fitted with three illuminated shelves as standard, the user can increase the number of shelves to five.

The design of the SGC 120 Arabidopsis Chamber allows researchers to take measurements of small leaves that are tightly bunched together by providing unrestricted access. The SGC 120 provides the space to growth Arabidopsis to maturity under controllable light, temperature and humidity conditions.

The SGC 120 has a number of user-friendly features including colour touch panel for programming, digital safety thermostat and eye level controls.
