Chlorophyll Content Meter - works on small & difficult samples & provides a larger reliable measuring range than other instruments
The CCM-300 uses a proven fluorescence ratio technique for chlorophyll content measurement at an affordable price. Readout is directly in chlorophyll content mg/m2, and measurement ratio.
Allows measurement of
CCM-300 Chlorophyll Content Meter is designed to measure difficult samples. It can be used on conifers, turf grasses, moss, lichen, immature wheat, immature Arabidosis, stems, and petioles, as well as easier samples, like corn and broadleaf plants. The instrument was designed around research done by Gittelson, Bushman, & Lichtenthaler in 1999. The research shows that this method offers a larger reliable measuring range than absorption style meters, provides a ratio that correlates with chemical tests & provides direct readout of chlorophyll content in mg/m2, that is reliable for many plant species. Adjustments to the direct chlorophyll content readout equation are possible for other species.
