The Biotron is ideal for product testing in a range of simulated environments with precise light, temperature, and humidity levels. Room programs allow for complex setpoint schedules to match sunrise or sunset times, mimic freeze-thaw cycles, or produce extreme climate conditions. Additionally, specialized rooms provide for sound-dampening and vibration isolation.

Controlled variables include:

Temperature -20ºC to 45ºC (-4ºF to 113ºF)
Humidity (RH) 10% to 90%
Light intensity 0 to 1,000 µmol m-2s-1
Light quality incandescent, fluorescent, HID, LED, UV
Biological isolation isolated air-handling, HEPA filtration
Sound isolation insulated with sound-dampening springs
Vibration isolation insulated with sound-dampening springs
Electrical power on/off programmable per minute
Watering automatic per schedule
