Model CI-600 - In Situ Root Imager

0

Root development and function are vitally important for plant adaptation to the environment. The understanding of root biology is critically necessary to facilitate the improvement of crop performance, especially in the face of environmental constraints. The CI-600 is the only instrument available that enables researchers to capture non-destructive, high resolution, digital images to observe the development and function of a plant’s root system.

  • Provides a high-resolution underground color image of living roots in the soil
  • Enables observation of root growth and behavior over time; one or multiple growing seasons
  • Portable and field ready for fast accurate root and soil images

RootSnap!

Included with the CI-600 package, RootSnap! software has integrated image enhancement features, which allow users to optimize scanned images for more accurate processing. This eliminates the need to switch to alternate image enhancement programs.

Monitor root growth, disease, dynamics and behavior over time with RootSnap! Simplify mapping roots using the multi-touch feature and our proprietary 'Snap to Root' function. The superior RootSnap! Interface is intuitive and efficient. It uses familiar commands to manipulate images and files. Files are stored in common open file formats (XML) and supports exporting data to apps like Excel.

Monitor and analyze root development, architecture, and morphology.

  • Map roots in a fraction of the time
  • Multi-touch Interface, optimized for touch-screen
  • Integrated image enhancement feature
  • Automated 'Snap to Root' functionality
  • Comprehensive data analysis package
  • Measures root length, area, volume, & diameter
  • Time-series root analysis feature
  • Intuitive and effecient user interface

  • Super high-resolution image up to 23.5 million pixels
  • Linear scanning with no distortion
  • Each scan provides a 360-degree image (21.59 × 19.56cm)

* Scan speeds for handheld tablet included with scanner. Scan speeds vary with device used to operate scanner.

The CI-600 is designed for long-term root studies on living plants in the field. Install clear acrylic tubes within the study area prior to the growing season. When the plant begins to build a network of roots, images of the structure and behavior of the roots can be recorded and analyzed with an available root analysis software package. The CI-600 scanner head fits within the tubes to scan roots as they grow over time, providing nearly 360-degree high-resolution color images of soil and roots. How it Works: To obtain an image, insert the CI-600 scan head into a pre-installed underground tube and begin the scanning program on the computer. The scan head automatically rotates nearly 360-degrees, creating a 21.59 × 19.56cm-size high-resolution color image of the soil and roots. Users can easily move the scan head to different depths, and from tube to tube
