Aracons are seed harvesting devices that automatically collect the seeds produced by individual Arabidopsis . Each Aracon consists out of a tube and base:

Aracon tube

Guides the falling seeds into the base and prevents neigbouring plants from touching one another. Read more

Aracon base

Contains an inverted cone that both guides the growing stem into the container and collects the falling seeds. Read more


Allows indiviual plants to be moved around at all stages of the Arabidopsis life cycle. Fits exactly into the pot cavities of Araflats. Read more


Arrays of 51 individual pot cavities. Ideally suited for growing Arabidopsis plants. Read more


Solid plastic trays, fit underneath the Araflats. They simplify subirrigation and transportation of plants. Read more

Each component can be ordered separately in our webshop
