Environmental Chambers

The working group „Ecotoxicology & Environment“ within the Institute for Environmental Sciences has 4 environmental chambers (Weiss Umwelttechnik GmbH, WK 19'/+15 - 35) at its disposal. Each chamber is 2.30 m high, 2.00 m wide and 3.30 m deep. Temperature (+15 to +35°C), humidity (60 to 80%) and lighting conditions (light/dark period length) can be adjusted to allow for suitable and stable experimental conditions. Environmental conditions can be monitored and changed remotely. Various study setups are possible: Aquatic and terrestrial plants and animals can be investigated in well-replicated standard lab tests and more complex micro- and mescosm studies.
