New product available: RhizonBoxes for direct sampling of soil moisture in the rhizosphere during growth experiments. The RhizonBox allows direct sampling near the roots with MicroRhizons. You can purchase your RhizonBox under article number 19.31.80.
The composition of the PVC/PE tubing in Rhizons has changed: TOTM (trioctyl trimellitate) has replaced DOP (dioctyl phtalate) as plasticizing agent. However the migration of DOP into the samples already was negligible, the migration of TOTM is even better: it is almost zero. This change in the composition of the medical tubing used by Rhizosphere was implemented for medical and environmental reasons.
From now on, all our vacuum tubes are plastic ones. Glass is no longer available. Due to the risk of breaking glass, producers changed to plastic vacuum tubes.
The protection caps for the Rhizon samplers are available in two colours: blue and red. This can be helpful to recognize your samplers, e.g. samplers at a different sampling depth in pot experiments.
Rhizosphere Research Products has a new logo. The roots illustrate the area we focus on with our products: the rhizosphere. Moreover, the roots symbolize the place of our company in your research project: just at the beginning, the root, when you are taking the samples and don’t know anything about the results. We hope that our Rhizons help to make your research grow!
