LI-COR Inc./LI-6400XT - Portable Photosynthesis and Fluorescence System

    Equipment/facility: Equipment

    • Location

      University Park, PA 16802

      United States

    Description

    The LI-6400XT is a gas exchange system that computes photosynthesis and from differences in CO2 and H2O between in-chamber conditions and pre-chamber conditions. This system provides laboratory quality measurements in a field-portable system.

    Features:

    Gas analyzers are located in the sensor head, minimizing time delays
    Measures fluorescence and gas exchange simultaneously over the same leaf area with full control of environmental variables
    Measures small photosynthesis rates and CO2 exchange
    Example Applications:

    The instrument can be used in environments ranging from the moist tropics to the dry arctic
    Chlorophyll photosynthesis
    Grassland photosynthesis
