Closed FluorCam FC-800-C




The closed FluorCam FC 800-C is a popular and best-selling system for imaging the kinetics of chlorophyll fluorescence that can be extended to a multispectral version allowing the detection of various fluorescent signals. The standard version consists of a CCD camera and four fixed LED panels. LED panels provide uniform irradiance on samples up to 90 × 90mm, suitable for small plants, shed leaves, algae dilutions, etc. The system allows adaptation to darkness.

The Sensor measures: Fluorescence

The closed FluorCam FC 800-C represents a highly innovative, robust, and easy-to-use system for combined multispectral and kinetic fl uorescence imaging. It consists of a CCD camera, four to five fixed LED panels (4 + 1 additional, which is not included in the standard configuration) and, optionally, a filter wheel equipped with up to 7 different emission filters. LED panels provide uniform irradiance over 90 × 90mm area, suitable for images of small plants (such as Arabidopsis thaliana), shed leaves, mosses, lichens, silver algae colonies or algae suspensions, etc. The system is very compact and allows easy adaptation to darkness of an investigated sample.
The closed FluorCam FC 800-C generates fluorescence signal images at any time during the experiment and displays them using a dummy color scale. Full kinetic analysis is available. In all applications, the camera enables images of fluorescence transients induced by actinic light or saturation flashes. The time and amplitude of the actinic irradiance are determined by user-defined protocols. The enclosed FluorCam FC 800-C also includes a high-performance PC and a comprehensive software package comprising total system control, data acquisition, and image processing. For a seasoned professional, the software offers a sophisticated programming language that can be used to design novel timing and measurement sequences.

QA-Reoxidation Module
High-end option allowing determination of QA-reoxidation kinetics. QA-reoxidation is recorded in a pump-and-probe manner, i.e. using repetitive flashes and recording with variable delay after each flash.
PAR-Absorptivity and NDVI Module
High-end option for measuring PAR absorptivity and NDVI reflectance index. It includes 7-position filter wheel, light panel 130 x 130 mm (installed round the camera and mounted with far-red LEDs 740 nm + deep-red LEDs 660 nm) and a glass filter. PAR-measurement is based on reflectance of plants in near infrared region and in the visible red range of spectrum. NDVI is used as vegetative index for predicting photosynthetic activity.
