Two growth chambers and a walk-in chamber with 12 boxes in the basement are available at the Department of Botany. The old growth chamber (Conviron) is located on the ground floor (in front of geobotany) and enables the setting of temperature, lighting and relative humidity. For those interested in the technical parameters, look for the Conviron Adaptis A-1000, TC-kit. The newer growth chamber (Panasonic) is located in the same place (ground floor) and it enables the setting of the lighting time and temperature regime. When using a chamber, please reasonably consider the degree of lighting and humidity control you really need.
To use both growth chambers more efficiently, there is an on-line calendar accessible from the same web interface used for faculty mail – Google calendar (this requires a user name – like the one used for mail or a classroom, and a password – like the one used for CAS/mail) here.
If you want to reserve space in a chamber for a particular time, please, contact the administrator: Blanka Kuklíková, firstname.lastname@example.org .
The chambers also have an e-mail forum, email@example.com, where you can post messages, report necessary repairs, and communicate with other users. If you want to use the chambers in the near future, if you have samples there, etc., the administrator of the chambers will grant you the access to this email group. The administrator adds all important information about climate boxes to this group.
Please sign up sensibly. Costs (electricity, inspections and repairs) are paid by the Department, deionized water is supplied by the geobotanists.
