ARACONS are seed harvesting devices that automatically collect seeds produced by individual Arabidopsis plants. ARACONS consist of two parts, a base and tube.  The assembled ARACON is 44.45 cm (17.5 in) tall and has a diameter of 5.56 cm (2.1875 in).  Thus,  if its legs are inserted a distance of  2.54 cm (1 in) into growing medium, the assembled ARACON would occupy about 41.91 cm (16.5 in) of vertical space above the medium's surface.

The ARACON base is placed over the center of a rosette whorl shortly after bolting has occurred. The clear plastic tube slips into the base and provides a protected channel for the grow of the flowers and maturing siliques. Any seeds which shatter from mature siliques are passively collected by the inverted cone receiver of the base piece.

By virtue of their design, ARACONS prevent cross-fertilization of flowers and cross-contamination of seeds of adjacent plants grown in traditional pots. ARACONS also lower the risk of uncontrolled release of transgenic seeds into the environment.    (Note:   The tube portion of the Aracon is available separately as cat. no. AS-08 Aratubes.  The Aracon bases are not sold separately and must be obtained either in cat. no. AS-01 Starter Kit 360 or cat. no. AS-02 Aracons.)

We ship UPS (F.O.B. Round Rock) in the USA and Canada. Each box of cat. no. AS-02 contains 720 ARACONS. Shipping container has dimensions of 17 x 20 x 23 inches and weighs 50 lb.
