Phenomics facility

Instrument Details:

Make : LemnaTech, Germany​​

Model: Customised 



The Greenhouse Scanalyzer Plant-to-Sensor platform continuously monitors of plants under controlled conditions without human intervention. Plants are transported by conveyers through a series of imaging cabinets, each cabinet hosting a different sensor, to capture multiple data points per plant per run. Conveyer systems can harbour variable numbers of plants, ranging from small versions for few plants up to large installations for several hundreds of plants. Equipped with Visible, IR and NIR Imaging, Conveyor belts and plants grown in 240 pots at a given point of time can be assessed; In each imaging cabinet, a turning system can rotate the plants to capture images horizontally from all sides, together with a camera from above. This results in comprehensive quantitative data about phenotypic traits of the plants that refer to development, physiology and environmental responses. Other system options include precise automatic watering and weighing.



  • Automated control of growth environment including soil moisture
  • Desired level of water stress is maintained and monitored with greater precision
  • Acquisition, processing and analysis  of images
  • Automation minimizes  labour requirement for repeated characterization of huge set of germplasm
  • Images from visible range reveals changes in morphology and developmental stages
  • Images  from infra-red range reveals variation in plant temperature
  • Images from near infrared range reveals plant water status
