The robust chlorophyll fluorometer is suited for routine analysis of photosynthesis in the lab and outdoors. An internal computer provides a multitude of options which are controlled by a field-readable b/w touchscreen. Also, operation via a Windows PC is possible. The device is specialized to measure the photochemical efficiency of photosystem II (ФII). In conjunction with a 2035-B leaf clip, the quantum flux density of photosynthetic radiation at leaf level (in units of µmol s-1 m-2) can be measured. The latter data together with the ФII permits the calculation of photosynthetic electron transport rates.
The fluorometer is equipped with a red LED that maximally emits at 654 nm (alternatively blue, 474 nm). By means of microsecond timing, the same LED can emit weak measuring light, continuous light up to 3000 µmol s-1 m-2 or very strong light pulses up to 6000 µmol s-1 m-2. Also, the device provides a far red light source to specifically excite photosystem I.
Fluorescence is detected by a photodiode.
AA Mignon batteries provide power in the absence of external electricity. An optional accessory is the 2035-B leaf clip which is equipped with sensors to measure light intensity, leaf temperature and relative humidity. Further add-ons are dark leaf clips to determine FM und F0 under day light, and a thermostattable cuvette with stirrer to measure suspensions.
