With its unique ability to adapt to four different research applications, the MF1000 offers an economical and flexible equipment platform. The base chamber itself can be fitted with one of four specially configured kits, and each kit is specifically designed for a particular application including:
By varying the configuration of the airflow, light, and shelving, each kit defines one of the four applications. The MA1000 is also available with several options such as phenolic coated coils and network communication. The phenolic coated coils enable the MF1000 to be used for entomology research while the communications option facilitates connection to a facility’s local area network.
The lighting systems for the MF1000 incorporate high
efficiency T5H0 fluorescent lamps. Lighting system
configuration is determined by the application kit where
each kit stipulates a particular light intensity and lamp
canopy configuration. Lamp and ballast combinations have
been designed to ensure a balanced light spectrum while
light intensity levels are adjusted (AR & PG Kits only)
through a stepped selection process.
Precisely designed and manufactured air plenums are used for each of the four application kits. The Plant Growth kit utilizes a solid rear plenum which discharges air from the floor for a uniform upward airflow. The Arabidopsis and Incubation kits both use a perforated rear plenum which discharges the air horizontally for maximum condition uniformity in view of the use of flats or similar research vessels. The Tissue Culture configuration incorporates individual air-shelves that discharge air vertically to reduce or eliminate condensation within media dishes.
The standard air-cooled refrigeration system is optimized to ensure adequate capacity for delivery of uniform conditions regardless of the particular kit installed. Kits do not alter the configuration of the refrigeration system and as such, kits can be exchanged with minimal effort.
User programmable alarms for key parameters such as temperature and humidity monitor the actual conditions within the chamber and notify the User with both audible and visual alarms. Additional factory pre-set alarms monitor system integrity while an alarm history recorder tabulates alarm events for historical reference and service.
