Medium to large dynamic phenotyping platform.

A non-destructive analysis of different crops or model plants under high-throughput conditions. Plants are imaged in multiple runs throughout their entire life cycle. The result is a number of reproducible and significant data points on any aspect of plant development.

Small dynamic phenotyping platform.

The high-throughput plant screening system (PlantScreen™) allows the user to monitor numerous aspects of plant growth, development and response to biotic and abiotic stresses. Our system can hold 2000 plants and takes RGB and chlorophyll fluorescence imaging.


Static Gravimetrics system (120 units) for water utilisation studies

3D Plant Imaging

The laser scanner is for small to medium sized plant, 3D imaging.

Mobile Imaging Rigs

We have developed a number of mobile imaging rigs designed to be robust and portable.

Photo-physiological capability

Hardware & Software

Our hardware and software, written scripts. Built and developed by us.


We also have the following facilities at IBERS, available for collaborative projects:


Root Phenotyping

Flowing Solution Culture

Instrumented hydroponics

µCT Scanner 100

Designed for handling large samples, µCT 100 offers a very wide field of view while maintaining high imaging resolution. The optional sample changer accommodates up to 12 sample holders. Variable filter and X-ray power settings greatly increase the range of materials that can be scanned. It can be used on wide variety of plant and tissue types.
