The light – the decisive growth factor

With the factor light, the RUMED® Test and Simulation Equipment offers the third and decisive module for simulation of environmental conditions. Make your choice from the wide range of lighting
possibilities to find the suitable solution for your application.

Light – different lighting levels
RUMED® Light Thermostats are applied very often in plant research or for seed tests, but
are also playing a major role, wherever photo stability tests are required. The RUMED® Precision Equipment can be equipped with the most different light spectra and luminous intensities. From the natural
spectrum for reproducible environmental and growth conditions in plant research, over monochromatic light for systematic simulation, up to special UV spectra for accelerated ageing tests. Due to the
manifold combinations, the suitable equipment variant for any requirement profile can be found.

By means of the Control2015 touch, the most complex temperature and humidity lighting profiles can be realized. Also storage conditions and radiation intensities can be recorded in conformity with FDA, as well as in accordance with GMP. Photo stability tests according to ICH Q1B become child‘s play.

The application ranges of the RUMED® Light Thermostats:

  • Plant research
  • Seed tests and seed research
  • In vitro cultivation
  • Zoology and botany
  • Photo stability tests in the fields foodstuffs, cosmetics or pharmacy
  • Packaging industry
  • Plant research: Plants need natural light for prosperity.

  • In vitro cultivation: Many plants out of one plant – under the right conditions.

  • Photo stability tests of drugs according to ICH Q1B.

  • LED Light bars: They are economical and offer more possibilities in the arrangement of the test room.

  • Much light, but not too much heat. These fluorescent lamps are thermally insulated from the test room.


Light LED lighting in the test room

LED lighting in the test room

The vertically arranged LED light bars allow free and flexible arrangement of the test room. Appliances of the Eco-Line are equipped with 2 LED bars on the back panel of the test room, those of the Premium-Line are equipped with 2 LED bars on each side panel.

For the following appliances of the Eco-Line:

E160, E230, E400

For the following appliances of the Premium-Linie:

P 350, P 530, P 850, P 1060, P 1700


Light Lighting in several levels

Lighting in several levels

Appliances with lighting by means of fluores­cent lamps in several levels are the best choice for plants with low growth height. They distinguish by optimum economy of space. Depending on the appliance and the desired growth height, executions with 2 or 3 illumi­­na­ted levels are available.

For the following appliances of the Eco-Linie:

E160, E230, E400

For the following appliances of the Premium-Linie:

P 350, P 530, P 850, P 1060, P 1700


Light Lighting from both sides

Lighting from both sides

The fluorescent lamps are arranged in lighting units, which are retractable to the side. A double glazing effects a thermal insulation between the lighting equipment and the test room. A vertical forced air conduction cools the lighting and minimizes the heat introduction into the test room. The illuminated test room space can be extended by additional shelves.

For the following appliances of the Premium-Linie:

P 350, P 530


Light Lighting from above

Lighting from above

For high-growing plants and normal luminous intensities, an illumination from above with fluorescent lamps is appropriate. If average to high luminous intensities are required, metal halide vapour discharge lamps will be applied. Light densities of up to 800 µE/m (corresponding to approx. 40.000 lux) can be achieved.

For the following appliances of the Premium-Linie:

P 210, P 350


Light Lighting in several levels

Lighting in several levels “In vitro”

This execution had been developed particularly for in vitro cultivation. It is equipped with a specific recirculating air system avoiding condensation. No formation of condensate drops means: no contamination
of the cultures by dripping water and no burning glass effect. The appliance is equipped with 4 illuminated levels, which can be switched and dimmed independently of each other by means of the option multi-channel light control.

For the following appliances of the Premium-Linie:

P 530, P 1060


Light Photo Stability ICH Q1B

Lighting “Photo Stability ICH Q1B”

For photo stability tests according to the ICH guideline Q1B. The lighting in the 4 shelves can be controlled independently of each other. The light dose will be measured and documented per shelf. If the preset light dose is reached, the lighting of the concerned level is automatically switched-off by the appliance.

For the following appliances of the Premium-Linie:

P 530
