PhytoBox: Plant Phenotyping for All!
CID AgTech accelerates the adoption of digital plant measurement with its new affordable phentoyping lineup. With PhytoBox you capture detailed images of Arabidopsis and small plants for analysis with your favorite software.
The PhytoBox launches soon, with the first version designed to capture top-down images of plants sown in flats as large as the standard 1020 size. Custom sizes available.
With a T-slotted aluminum frame and high quality cover panels, the PhytoBox has a professional look, feel, and finish without excessive weight. Casters make it easily movable within the lab, growth room, or greenhouse.
The Right Optics
A dSLR was selected because the large sensors capture detailed images that cannot be obtained with industrial cameras. The versatility of a dSLR is another advantage. Illumination by high color rendering index LEDs provides faithful color reproduction.
Open Source Inspired
The plant phenotyping community has released many image analysis programs that rival or exceed commercial software. We thought, "Why ask customers to buy something they can find for free?" PhytoBox was developed with open source phenotyping software.
