biora RIC-840

The smaller footprint of the robust Biora RIC-840 encapsulates a large growth area inclusive of innovative functionality, versatility and precision to ensure environmental conditions such as temperature, light, humidity, CO2 levels and wind speeds can be simulated and replicated uniformly. Environment replication is programmed and monitored via GuardIAN remotely or via a user friendly colour touch-screen interface at the front of the chamber.
