Percival Customer Paving the Way in Marine Biology Research

Dr. Virginia Weis, a world leader in coral-algal symbiosis research and distinguished professor at Oregon State University (OSU), explains how she came to the difficult realization that today’s reefs will never return to the pristine condition of the past and how she began looking for new solutions.

Choose Lighting to Replicate Any Aquatic Environment

Customize your chambers with marine-specific lighting of virtually any wavelength, including actinic blue and ultraviolet. Need a chamber with the right light wavelengths for your specialized research? We’ll design it to your specifications. Our dimmable SciWhite and SciBrite LEDs give you superior control over light intensity. And with four- or eight-color configuration, SciBrite lighting lets you choose from the broadest spectrum of wavelengths available in scientific chambers.


Customized Climate Chambers for Marine Biology Research

“I knew there were a lot of chamber companies out there, but I didn't want to waste my time looking. You don't want to have any problems when all your research is relying on the stability and capacity of your chambers.”

Dr. Tingting Xiang, Marine Biology Researcher

Our Solutions for the Unique Requirements of Marine Biology

Algae Chambers

We designed these chambers with the high-intensity light required for algae to flourish. The tiers of shelving are individually lighted with our dimmable SciWhite LEDs and are ideal for flasks. They can also be customized with SciBrite LEDs for specific wavelength studies.

Low Temperature Chambers


These chambers use a dual-coil system to consistently maintain low temperatures under high-intensity SciWhite or optional SciBrite lighting. They are frequently used for research with cold water and ocean algae.

Unparalleled Lighting


Our proprietary SciWhite and SciBrite LEDs provide consistent lighting uniformity at levels never seen before. Tiers of our LED lighting are individually dimmable in one-percent increments so you can conduct different experiments on each shelf.

Long-Lasting, Reliable Performance

“They’re incredibly reliable. They’ve allowed an increase in biomass so that we have a lot more anemones to work with.”
