VSI Rhizobox / root box systems of different designs are used to i) separate rhizosphere soil from bulk soil, ii) are a feasible ways to study different aspects of soil–root interactions, iii) to measure root growth, turnover and depth distribution and iv) to sample defined root types (e.g. age classes, orders). Splitting the root compartment of rhizoboxes is a cost-effective way to double the number of replicates, since only negligible additional labour during set-up and no additional space is needed. Assembling the compartments with corrosion resistant screws (back and front plate detachable) facilitates the filling procedure and prolongs the usability. The flat surfaces allow for space optimised placement (e.g. important in growth chambers) and easy picture acquisition by flatbed scanners.
Materials and dimensions, fittings, etc. of the rhizoboxes / root boxes can be fully customized according to your specific needs. As of the manifold customizations options, please fill in one RHIZOBOX configuration sheet (see below) for each inquired design type. Send a digital copy (scan, picture) to firstname.lastname@example.org for quoting (and potential manufacturing). Subsequent design changes have to be confirmed in writing!
Rhizoboxes are exclusively custom-made according to your specifications, thus allow for sufficient production time and get in contact as early as possible.
