Extreme Climate Chamber
All climates you ever wished for.
This system allows the simulation of all relevant climate factors that influence the genome, transcriptome, proteome and matabolome. Experiments using plants, cell cultures and
microorganisms can be carried out with a choice of an extensive range of defined environmental factors including temperature, humidity, pressure, light, atmosphere (CO2, O2, N2, ozone) and salt. Furthermore, the system is ideally suited for studying environmental influences on material aging.

Three separate reaction chambers allow for independent time series. Climate conditions can be kept stable over hours and even days or changed in pre-defined cycles. The chambers also enable the extraction of atmosphere samples during the experiment. Sensitive sensors allow the measurement of temperature and the availability of water within the samples.
