Plant Growth Chamber Series

Dec 22 2011

Caron Products announces the introduction of Plant Growth Chambers as the newest addition to its rapidly growing product portfolio. The new application-based series includes: Plant Growth Chambers, Arabidopsis/Algae Chambers, Plant Tissue Culture Chambers and Seed Germination Chambers, available in 25 cu. ft. (708 liters) and 33 cu. ft. (934 liters) volumes. Caron’s new plant growth series represents a complete product offering for a wide variety of plant life research work – from seedlings to fully  developed plants and crops. Although many methods exist for these studies, each new  Caron plant growth chamber targets a specific application with the proper temperature range, amount of lighting and space for growth.

Plant Growth Chambers (Model 6320 and 6340), Arabidopsis/Algae Chambers (Model 6321 and 6341) and Plant Tissue Culture Chambers (Model 6322 and 6342) come standard with Caron’s earth-friendly gLux™ high efficiency fluorescent lamps. Lamp banks are interchangeable, modular, expandable and waterproof. They are precisely spaced for uniformed, balanced light across all shelf locations.

Seed Germination Chambers (Model 6323 and 6343) utilise low profile, side mounted LED lights to effectively cultivate plantlets and seedlings. All lights have a digital day/night cycle timer with separate day/night temperature setpoints.

Although the plant growth series is a new product offering, Caron is accustomed to the plant  biology market. Bob Dotterer, Applications Engineer, has customised many standard Caron units for plant growth studies.

“For years we have worked closely with plant researchers delivering equipment tailored to optimally grow their plants,” Dotterer said. “We’ve effectively utilised feedback and requests from plant biologists to engineer application specific products that go beyond typical equipment offered by others. Our product incorporates unmatched environmental stability, energy efficiency, customer convenience and lighting enhancement options.”

Additionally, Caron is rolling out specialised chlorophyll-matching lamp alternatives that will maximise plant growth. Chlorophyll most strongly absorbs light in the blue and red regions. Precisely matching this perfect light wavelength allows plants to grow at the fastest, healthiest rate. The blue (LGHT308) and red (LGHT309) lights are sold as optional light packages and consist of four lamps each.

Caron’s blue lamps produce high quantities of light in the 420 nm range and red lamps produce high quantities of light in the 660 nm range.
