The Controlled Environment Facility (CEF) houses 20 walk in rooms as well as 47 free standing cabinets, two communal laboratories, and two autoclaves. These facilities allow control over many aspects of the growing environment, such as temperature, humidity, light, and carbon dioxide. Fully-qualified staff provide services such as environmental monitoring, watering, pest and disease control, as well as horticultural advice.

Facilities are available for booking by all RSB staff, however other staff from the College will be considered on a case-by-case basis if facilities are available. A small User-pays contribution is applicable to all usage. Those outside RSB may incur a surcharge.

For information on any of the facilities, booking inquires, supplies and maintenance issues please contact the CEF Coordinator, Jenny Rath in the Plant Services Team
The CEF is located in Building 46C, ANU Campus map
