The most advanced portable modulated chlorophyll fluorometer available, with FM' correction option, according to Loriaux 2013, included for all light adapted protocols including quenching.
The OS5p+ portable system - includes the latest advancements in variable chlorophyll fluorescence measurements. The OS5p+ can measure most types of plant stress, and offers a wider range of up to date measuring protocols and automation.
Wide Range of Programmable Testing Protocols including:
The OS5p+ is designed to be the most advanced chlorophyll fluorometer available. It is intended for advanced plant research and plant stress measurement. It offers the latest updates in chlorophyll fluorescence capabilities, including: FM' correction according to Loriaux 2013, a stable white actinic white light source that allows chloroplast migration, and quenching relaxation measurement of qE, qT, qM, qZ, and qI. It also provides a comprehensive list of quenching protocols including Kramer lake model, Hendrickson lake model, and puddle model protocols. Other capabilities include: A Y(II) protocol, an FV/FM protocol, Strasser OJIP, Vredenberg OJIP, and Rapid Light Curves (for changing light conditions).
Parameters Measured and Protocols included:
Quantum Photosynthetic Yield of PSII (or F/FM' or Y).
Electron transport rate (w/optional clip).
Photosynthetically Active Region value (with optional PAR clip).
Leaf temperature (with optional PAR clip).
Maximum Photochemical efficiency of PSII.
A more sensitive detector of stress than FV/FM, but it does not measure plant efficiency.
FMS (or FM'):
Maximal fluorescence with actinic illumination at steady state fluorescence.
FS (or F):
Fluorescence under steady state conditions (prior to saturation pulse).
A measure of a leaf's photosynthetic capacity or maximum electron transport rate a is the initial slope of line at low PAR values created by relating ETR to PAR. It provides a measure of quantum efficiency.
A measurement of the light intensity where light saturation dominates, or the minimum saturation level.
