The available equipment include:

  • micro to minicosms of 500 mL to 500 L
  • thermo-regulated experimentation devices
  • light or dark temperature controlled rooms,
  • classical lab equipment
  • environmental probes to record hydrostatic pressure, flowmeters, CT, pH and gaz  (O2, H2, N2, CO2 …)
  • Two containers fully equipped are available for field studies (HP Lab container and Microcosm container).
