GC3- Bench-top Plant Growth Chamber- 84L model

The GC3 Bench-top plant growth chamber is  designed for botanical and agricultural research applications including seed germination studies, plant pathology,  and generic plant research. Chamber design accommodates plant, animal and culture studies, research and growth.

GC3 Plant growth incubator/chamber  construction features a unique double shell-filled with commercial-grade polyurethane material for optimal insulation. Inlaid sealing ring and nylon latch for enhanced seal/performance. The chamber is made out of LLPDE material shell.

Chamber features a digital Watlow, Fuji or equivalent PID temperature control and display along with precision PT100 RTD temperature sensor and RH sensor. Chamber is made out of good quality material.

We offer good service and warranty. Reach out to our sales department for same day quote.

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
User programmable alarm settings Humidity up to 90%

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. 

1 level of lighting 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

  • 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 Handlel
  • 2 Pre-Installed shelves per section

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 quiet 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:

  • Control and monitor via Bluetooth App (Watlow model)
  • Simplifies Controller Management with Easy-to-Operate Graphic User Interface,LED display, Autotune capability
  • Control access via software
