Arabidopsis Chamber MATC60 provides an exceptional growth-area-to-footprint ratio. Arabidopsis Chamber uses a top-mounted refrigeration system that accommodates servicing from the front of the chamber, and that simplifies on-site installation. The Arabidopsis Chamber MATC60 offers three tiers with almost 60 ft2 (5.5 m2) of growth area in a 25 ft2 (2.32 m2) footprint. With a growth height of 20 inches (510 mm) above each shelf, the Arabidopsis Chamber MATC60 is ideally suited for Arabidopsis and other short to medium height plants. Standard on the Arabidopsis Chamber MATC60 is a flood tray at each tier to simplify plant irrigation. Please consult Meditech regarding specific requirements for Arabidopsis Chamber

The Arabidopsis Chamber MTAC60 provides an unprecedented growth-area to foot print ratio. It uses a top-mounted refrigeration system that accommodates servicing from the front of the chamber, and that simplifies on-site installation. The Arabidopsis Chamber MTAC60 offers three tiers with almost 60 ft2 of growth area in a 25 ft2 footprint. With a growth height of 21 inches above each shelf, the Arabidopsis Chamber MTAC60 is ideally suited for Arabidopsis and other short to medium height plants. Standard on the Arabidopsis Chamber MTAC60 is a flood tray at each tier to simplify plant irrigation. Please consult Meditech regarding specific requirements.
The standard lighting package for the Arabidopsis Chamber MTAC60 combines fluorescent and incandescent lamps which produces a very broad based light spectrum of low-to medium light intensity. Heat from the two lamp canopies of Arabidopsis Chamber is removed by the refrigeration system. The lamps are separated from the growth area by a transparent barrier which minimizes heat transfer to the plants. Standard light intensity of Arabidopsis Chamber is 300 micromoles/m2/s which is measured by a quantum light meter and transmitted to the controller for user readout. Lighting is switched in three levels for each lamp type. A high light option is available which increase the intensity to 500 micromoles/m2/s.
Airflow in Arabidopsis Chamber is distributed horizontally via a perforated back wall plenum across each shelf. This helps to establish uniform air distribution and a consistent temperature gradient around the growth area that is independent of plant loading. The Arabidopsis Chamber includes a fresh air intake and exhaust which is adjustable to allow up to 20 ft3/min (0.57m3/min.) of air exchange.
Cooling for the Arabidopsis Chamber MATC60 is provided by a top mounted, water cooled condensing unit with a hot-gas bypass system for continuous compressor operation. An electronic modulating valve in Arabidopsis Chamber provides tight temperature control while ensuring quiet operation. Pressure transducers are included for monitoring the status of the refrigeration system. Consult the factory for heat rejection information and other options for cooling of Arabidopsis Chamber
User programmable “set and forget” alarms track the Arabidopsis Chamber operation versus user-defined set points. This allows for exceptionally accurate monitoring Arabidopsis Chamber without the need for adjustment every time the set point is redefined. Backup “high/ low” alarms provide a further level of protection while visual and audible notification is provided when any alarm is activated. Contacts for connection to a building management system are also included.
