Novel plant culture vessels

Download 3D model


3D printing was successfully used to prototype novel culture vessels with independently controlled variable fluence rate/spectra LED lighting. This system addresses several limitations associated with current lighting systems, providing more uniform lighting and allowing proper replication/randomization for experimental plant biology while increasing energy efficiency. The Vessel & Lid were printed in PC material for abililty to autoclave.
