PLANT GROWTH ROOMS

In partnership with Nijssen, Heuch designs and manufactures walk-in climatised plant growth rooms for a wide range of applications  – e.g. germination rooms, tissue culture rooms, vernalisation rooms, GMO-research rooms and entomological research rooms. Our storage rooms offer optimal protection of your seeds.

In climate chambers, temperature, air humidity, CO2, light intensity, air movement and watering can be regulated extremely accurately. The control system enables you to continuously monitor and record various climatic conditions for guaranteed reproducibility.

GERMINATION ROOMS

Seed Germination Rooms are specifically designed to reach the optimum germination conditions for each crop. Available with a full range of options to suit your needs. Custom sizes guarantee the largest growth area within the available space.

Light systems integrated on Danish trolleys
Heating and cooling system developed for quick ramp by changing day and night
High humidity levels with Filacell® system for best germination
Horizontal airflow guarantees uniform temperature and humidity
High humidity ensures adequate moisture for seeds
Uniform light intensities enable consistent germination
Adjustable shelves or racks maximise germination options

TISSUE CULTURE ROOMS

Reliable in vitro propagation requires a controlled, sterile environment with optimal conditions. Since any configuration of airflow, light, and shelving is possible, our Tissue Culture Rooms will always meet your requirements.

Uniform airflow through pressurized sidewalls or upward from each shelf to prevent condensation
Adjustable shelving possibilities
Multi-tier design maximises available growth area
Lighting controlled for each individual shelf
Dimmable lighting for assimilation schedules and adjustable per PPF (µmol m-2 s-1)

VERNALISATION ROOMS

Vernalisation Rooms are specifically designed for the artificial exposure of plants (or seeds) to low temperatures in order to stimulate flowering or to enhance seed production.

Multi-tier design maximises available growth area
Antibacterial coating prevent growth of bacteria and fungi
Air flow optimised by air turns
Lighting controlled for each individual shelf

GMO RESEARCH ROOMS

We designs and develop GMO rooms for a wide range of applications. Our climate rooms have a high containment level (up to PKM-III) to ensure that research with genetically modified organisms and plant pathogens can be carried out safely.

Sluice room with under pressure system
Absolute filtering by HEPA filtering system
High containment levels up to PKM-III
Pressure regulations and control +/- 50Pa in the room

ENTOMOLOGICAL RESEARCH ROOMS

Entomology Chambers provide uniform environmental conditions for incubation and entomology experiments. Multiple optional accessories are available, allowing you to cost-effectively customise the unit according to your specific requirements.

Wide temperature and humidity range
Optional assimilation lighting to simulate day/night conditions
Robust materials to resist corrosive effects of acidic secretions

SEED STORAGE ROOMS

To preserve seed viability and quality, proper storage under controlled conditions is a prerequisite. Our Seed Storage Rooms with highest quality dehumidifiers offer optimal protection of your investment.

Temperature set to storage application (long term or medium term)
Low humidity’s +/- 30% humidity
Desiccant dryer systems
System redundancy to guarantee maximum operational reliability
