Tissue Culture Chambers
Two-climate chambers were installed in which conditions may be maintained at temperatures from 15 to 25°C with a relative humidity of 50 to 70%. Each chamber is digitally regulated. The climate chambers were designed with features that can be adjusted in five levels (total more than 140 m2) with lighting (240 fluorescent fixtures installed) and shelf cooling. Cooling occurs by means of cold water (originating from the main cold water system), and heating is carried out electrically (required only in special circumstances). Humidification is carried out ultrasonically. Furthermore, each room is equipped with ventilation.
Storage and test space
In addition to the tissue culture climate chambers, there is an area designed for storage between 4 and 8°C. A fourth chamber for use as a test area was also installed in this project. The temperature here can be regulated between 4 and 25°C with a relative humidity of about 50%. Cooling occurs by means of a direct expansion system. Air distribution occurs with textile duct hoses. Humidification takes plac ultrasonically.
