The Biora RIC-1400 is characterised by flexibility and exceptional environment uniformity. Horizontal air flow is optimized via side wall plenums which allows for uniform air circulation even when shelf heights are adjusted. Environment replication such as temperature, light, humidity, CO2 levels and wind speed at each level of the growth chamber is possible. Internal environment conditions are programmed and monitored via GuardIAN remotely or via a user friendly colour touch-screen interface at the front of the chamber.
