  • Rhizobox / Root Box Systems

    Rhizobox / Root Box Systems

    Rhizobox / root box systems of different designs are used to i) separate rhizosphere soil from bulk soil, ii) are a feasible ways to study different aspects of soil–root interactions, iii) to measure root growth, turnover and depth distribution and iv) to sample defined root types (e.g. age classes, orders). Splitting the root compartment of rhizoboxes is a cost-effective way to double the number of...

  • Minirhizotron Systems

    Minirhizotron Systems

    Root and mycorrhiza development are key for plant performance and affect many ecosystem and biogeochemical processes. However, observing this hidden half of ecosystems is not easy, being covered in the soil. Minirhizotron systems are a qualitative and quantitative observation tool to study root and hyphal growth, longevity and distribution in situ or mesocosms experiments. The MR system is based on transparent glass...

  • Mosquito Sex Separation Systems

    Mosquito Sex Separation Systems

    A successful application of the sterile insect technique and other strategies designed to eliminate large populations of insects relies on the efficient releases of competitive, sterile males into the natural habitat of the target species. As released sterile females do not contribute to the sterility of population in situ, systems for the separation of male from female individuals are needed. This is especially key for...

  • Automated Feeding Systems

    Automated Feeding Systems

    The requirement for efficient mosquito mass rearing technology has been one of the major obstacles preventing the large scale application of the Sterile Insect Technique against mosquitoes. At the FAO/ IAEA Insect Pest Control Laboratories a larval rearing unit was recently developed (see literature below) and is expected to be able to successfully rear hundred thousands of Anopheles arabiensis adult mosquitoes per rack. However,...
