Conviron announced the launch of the new GEN1000-GE germinator chamber. The new chamber comes equipped with new features such as an advanced controller and cost-saving LEDs.
The GEN1000-GE is specifically designed for gauging the health and performance of various seed lots under a wide range of environmental conditions. Applications include determining germination rates, vigor, seeding growth rates and other testing where tight environmental control is required. To accommodate a wide range of seed types the GEN1000-GE features a temperature range from +4°C to +40°C – the lower temperatures being advantageous for prechilling to overcome dormancy.
This chamber comes standard with exceptional temperature and light uniformity and very high humidity control. The interior features a reflective white corrosion resistant design with five vertically adjustable shelves on the base unit and up to 10 optional shelves to maximize capacity and accommodate the full range of germination methods such as paper, soil, containers or other prescribed methods. The 27.6ft³ (781l) footprint and swivel casters ease mobility and make it ideal for positioning in facilities where space is limited.
