Germinators are used for germination tests according to the ISTA rules. The standard program function allows pre-cooling of the seed to break the dormancy (stratification) and day programs for temperature and light for determination of the germination. Optionally, control of the relative humidity is available. The standard adjustable fresh air supply avoids condensation, the speed control of the recirculating air fan minimizes drying. RUMED® applies a powerful, low-noise and energy-efficient compressor cooling and predominantly natural refrigerants. This ensures short recovery times after door opening or charging. The Control2015touch ensures intuitive operation and allows convenient control and documentation of the program flow. Due to the USB and Ethernet interface, external data evaluation is possible.
