The DDPSC Phenotyping Core Facility provides equipment and services for high-throughput plant phenotyping. This includes both imaging and gravimetric platforms for analyzing plant genetics and environmental responses.
The Scanalyzer 3D platform consists of multiple digital imaging chambers connected to a controlled environment Conviron growth house by a conveyor belt system, resulting in a continuous imaging loop. As an automated, high-throughput platform, it enables our scientists to repeatedly image more than 1,000 plants at multiple points throughout time.
RGB imaging allows visualization and quantification of plant color and structural morphology. Near-infrared (NIR) enables visualization and quantification of plant water-use efficiency.
Watering and weighing stations are customizable to deliver water and nutrients on a specified schedule by volume or weight.
Our standard phenotyping services include operation and maintenance of the LemnaTec Scanalyzer system, as well as technical support and troubleshooting.
Other extended services may be offered based on time and labor availability, at an additional charge.
