Herbarium Drying Cabinets for Plant Specimen Desiccation

Plant Specimen Storage & Desiccation Cabinets

herbarium drying cabinetsDried plant specimens provide extremely important information to those who research them on the world around us. Their study is essential for taxonomy, ecology, anatomy, morphology, biology, pharmacology, and many other scientific disciplines, in addition to history. Without proper herbarium storage, rapid degradation can cause these irreplaceable samples to be lost.  Herbarium drying cabinets provide safe storage for plant specimen desiccation in a variety of museum and research applications.

The herbarium drying cabinets work by extracting moisture from pressed plant specimens, which preserves their structural integrity during storage. An independently-controlled fan and thermostatically controlled 120 V heater allows the cabinet to reach a maximum internal temperature of 120°F. The fan and heater combination allows thorough and rapid desiccation of plant specimens.

In the event of a thermal overload, the indicators on the doors will flash red. For normal operation, the indicators remain green. With five vented shelves adjustable on 1″ centers, you can store specimens of various sizes in one cabinet. The perforated shelves are designed to provide efficient heat and air circulation throughout the cabinet to dry all specimens evenly.

Solander Box Shelving Storing Flat Works on Paper

Flat Works on Paper Shelving

solander box shelving storage works on paperSome types of specific documents can’t be stored most efficiently on regular shelving. For example, many flat works on paper for museums, archival facilities, construction documents, and other applications require specialized storage to protect these materials from damage. More and more museums use Solander box shelving as a new standard to store historical documents and all types of flat and rolled storage.

The durable steel construction and non off-gassing finish makes the shelving perfect for storing Solander cases, Hollinger boxes, maps, mat boards, posters, drawings, blueprints, and other works that need to lay flat. This allows the materials to last longer and prevents damage from being folded or rolled up, which is especially crucial for historical archives. These shelves are also great for large format works that may not be suitable for other types of storage. Shelves are available in multiple sizes to accommodate oversized products up to 46″ x 36″.

Also, the roll-out art racks slide smoothly and quietly, which makes them an excellent art storage system.

Herbarium Cabinets for Storing Your Plant Specimen Collection

The Importance of Your Herbarium CollectionOpen Herbarium Cabinets Storing Plant Specimens

Without your herbarium, the study of plants would not be possible. Harvard University’s Herbaria and Library states, “As we lose natural habitats the world over, herbaria increasingly serve as a record of the recent history of plant life, and as a repository of precious genetic information. Herbaria hold the tools for our understanding of the plant world.”

The Special Care You Take to Preserve Plant Specimens

As botanists and mycologists, you take special care to preserve the form and color of plant specimens – carefully drying, pressing, mounting, and labeling them. Then after all that work, you store your collection in a cabinet or on shelving. But the next thing you know…everything has wasted away! What happened!?

Cabinets that Work as Hard as You Do to Maintain Your Collection

You probably used inferior cabinets or shelving. With the massive amount of work you do to ensure your herbarium collection is mounted and labeled correctly, you need to be using cabinets that will work just as hard to keep everything safe. StoreMoreStore has cabinets that are designed for the express purpose of herbaria archival and storage.Herbarium Cabinet Shelf for Botanists

The many features of our cabinets – paint that is non-gassing and non-reactive, heavy duty steel construction, a sealed and waterproof top – make them a secure investment in the protection of your herbarium collection. And if your collection is at risk for water damage from fire suppression systems or insect attacks, these cabinets offer the maximum protection available.

Protect and Store Your Herbarium Collection in the Right Cabinets

Your specimens are what allow people to understand the relationships between plants; how they are distributed throughout the world; ways in which plants can be used to help our economy; and the science behind their molecular composition. So why not make sure they are protected the right way: in a cabinet from StoreMoreStore.
