What are plant growth chambers?

Plant growth chambers are special type of environmental test chambers which are designed to perform plant growth experiments inside laboratory. The aim of a plant growth chamber is to create such atmospheric conditions responsible for effective plant germination and growth. In such chambers or cabinets, humidity, temperature and lights are controlled in such a way that the user can create desired environment essential for examining growth of a particular plant.


Plant growth chambers are widely used in research field to study crop productivity. Plant related agriculture research and development are the prime applications of these units; plant breeding, plant nutrition, photosynthesis are some of areas where plant growth chambers play an important role. Plant categories may vary such as cereal, arabidopsis, algae, tobacco, physcomitrella, fungi, medicago, weeds, soybeans, potatoes and other commercial crops and horticulture plants etc.



Excellent temperature stability Unparalleled light efficiency
High quality fluorescent lamps Automatic microprocessor controls
Insulated panels Stainless steel inner and outer construction
High and low limit temperature protection Printer and temperature chart recorder(Optional)
LED/LCD Bright display of SV/PV  Adjustable shelving arrangement
Uniform air flow inside chamber Provision to connect with PC

Canden Reach-in Plant growth incubators, growth chambers and uses high performance thermoelectric coolers which enables the incubator to maintain set points with relative ease. The control system includes a unique electronic board which enables bidirectional control over the thermoelectric system. This system is easier to replace and maintain.

The Reach-in plant growth incubator/ chambers have an optional additive humidity. Humidification is done via ultrasonic humidifier and a controller that displays both process and set value. The GC20 and GC40 have 3 levels of lighting per door/per section.

Light Features:

Grasslin digital light timer which enables multiple timer setting per day/7 days a week. Chamber also comes with optional PWM Featured Manual light dimming feature. There is optional outlets inside the chamber to enable user to plug in other devices. 

3 level of lighting per door/section is standard. 

LED Grow Light for Indoor Plants,Sun-Like Full Spectrum Panel Plant Light with IR & UV LED Bulbs for Seedling/Veg/Blooming/Succulents

Cabinet standard features

  • Stainless Steel Exterior & Interior
  • Maintains temperatures between 10°c to 40°c(Lights ON)
  • Temp and Humidity controller that displays both PV/SV
  • LED interior light with programmable digital diurnal timer
  • Recessed Door Handle
  • Door locks standard
  • 2″ access port
  • Magnetic door gasket standard for positive door seal
  • Pre-Installed 4″casters with bumper brakes
  • Four Pre-Installed shelves per section
  • Back wall plenum for even distribution of conditioned air

This Growth Chamber uses thermoelectric assembly for heating and cooling. This type of cooling/heating system completely eliminates need for conventional refrigeration system and failures due to mechanical components such as compressors thereby drastically increasing the life expectancy of each chamber. Maintenance cost is also lowered by the thermoelectric/Peltier driven heating/cooling system. The plant growth chamber is quite while in operation. Chamber temperature set points are tightly controlled using PID controller. Relative humidity set points are achieved via additive ultrasonic humidification. A humidifier is mounted on the back of the chamber. Refer to humidifier manual for maintenance and water line hook up.

Standard Temperature control features:

  • programmable alarm
  • Displays PV/SV
