VSI Rhizoboxes of different designs and sizes are available to study roots and the rhizosphere. Rhizoboxes are also known as Root Boxes, Rhizotrons or RhizonBoxes.
The VSI Rhizobox design offers the flexibility to manufacture long-lasting root boxes according to your specific needs. For example, 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. Angled racks (40°), holding five rhizoboxes each are available. See Rhizonboxes if soil pore water sampling is part of your research project.
As rhizoboxes / rhizonboxes / rhizotrons and racks can be fully customized, please fill in one configuration form for each inquired design type. Send digital copies (scans, pictures if filled in per hand) to firstname.lastname@example.org for quoting (and potential manufacturing). To avoid misunderstandings, all subsequent design changes have to be confirmed in writing!
Rhizo(n)boxes are exclusively custom-made according to your specifications, thus please allow for sufficient production time and get in contact as early as possible.
