Vienna Scientific offers root imaging instruments for the analysis of washed root samples, and continuous / automated imaging of root systems in Rhizoboxes and "RhizoPots" under controlled conditions in growth rooms, greenhouses and laboratories.
Automatic Rhizobox Imaging Platform, designed to automatically phenotype roots and shoots of rhizobox-grown plants. In addition to imaging, water use can be accurately determined by weighing and automated irrigation can be applied. The modular imaging system makes high-throughput research infrastructure affordable and scalable.
LK-1250 Rhizobox Imaging System, for semi-automatic digital imaging of individual rhizoboxes. The plant rhizobox imaging system uses a CMOS sensor with 20 MP and LED with adjustable brightness. The system is ready for A4 (letter) for custom sized rhizoboxes - obtaining complete, clear and reflectance free images.
LK-1600 RhizoPot Scanner System, a flatbed scanner system for automated imaging of roots and rhizosphere in attached A4 (letter) size RhizoPots. RhizoPots are rhizoboxes that are permanently mounted on a scanner flatbed for perfect image quality. The size of the scanning area is A4 (21 x 30 cm, WxH). Automated image acquisition for up to 20 RhizoPots (per control unit).
LK-1200 Benchtop Root Analyser, for digital rotational imaging of root systems / root crowns after rinsing. Once the sample is mounted, the analyser automatically captures images from any angle - allowing analysis of hundreds of root samples.
Epson 2D Root Scanner, with transparency units, are the first choice of root researchers worldwide for reliable analysis of root morphological parameters on rinsed roots. In line with our aim to provide a one-stop-shop experience, Vienna Scientific is offering the models as kits - including spacers and root scanning trays - ready for root imaging.
Root Scanning Trays, fitting the entire flatbed scanner / root imager area, have advantages over the use of Petri dishes. Vienna Scientific builds root scanning trays in standard and custom sizes to make full use of scanner areas.
