VSI MS-190 UHD Minirhizotron Camera. The high resolution MR camera system / UHD root Imager allows a wide range of fundamental or applied plant and soil scientists to capture UHD digital images (up to 2500 dpi!) of roots and the rhizosphere over one or multiple growing seasons. Durable and lightweight, and equipped with an advanced "Smucker" indexing handle (exact vertical & circular positioning), the portable UHD minirhizotron camera system is an advanced version of the traditional, and much relied on Bartz mini rhizotron systems. It is robust and easy to transport to any field location and can be used in rhizotron facilities and for studies in pots and mesocosms. It is equally suitable to image horizontally, vertically and angled minirhizotron tubes up to 500 cm in length and can be factory calibrated to a large range of different tube dimensions (see MR-T diameters). The Windows OS-based ICAP 8 software quickly and reliable allows to set-up and follow-up root imaging schedules and locations and handles the naming of images. A Minirhizotron Starter Kit MS-190S (MR camera + tubes + corer) is available to get you started right away.
VSI MS-190S Starter Set. The kit contains everything needed to set up and run a replicated minirhizotron experiment (i.e. corer, tubes, MR camera system). The competitively priced imaging kit is especially suitable for users who want to start using root imaging to study root system development and turnover, root distribution, mycorrhizal hyphae, or soil fauna in situ or pots.
The MS-190S minirhizotron starter set includes
BTC ICAP Minirhizotron Imaging Software. The software was developed and refined during the last decade by Bartz Technology Corporation and offers the reliable and convenient set-up and execution of MR experiments. We build on this strong base to provide minirhizotron camera users with the software they need to smoothly operate our manual HD minirhizotron camera system MS-190. As before, BTC ICAP will run on Windows OS - making it easy for students and newbies to access the program and to download the images. Please contact Bartz Technology Corporation for further details.
