The new MINI-PAM-II fluorometer combines the merits of its predecessor “MINI-PAM” with most modern LED and computer technology.
Sensitivity, small dimensions, reliability under rugged conditions, and simple execution of fluorescence analysis makes the MINI-PAM-II the new standard for PAM fluorometry in field research.
Well-tested fiberoptics with 5.5 mm or 2 mm active diameter reaches even hidden samples.
Measurements under field conditions are easily controlled and monitored by a transflective touchscreen.
Energy-efficient LED sources, storage capacity of 27,000 data sets, and easy replaceable off-the-shelf batteries permit long term research campaigns at remote places.
A new fully digital leaf clip combines fluorescence analysis with measurements of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), leaf temperature and relative humidity.
Measuring light:Blue (470 nm) LED, standard modulation frequencies 5 to 25 Hz adjustable in increments of 5 Hz and 100 Hz, measuring light PAR at standard settings = 0.05 μmol m-2 s-1. Fluorescence at wavelengths greater than 630 nm is measured
Actinic light: Same blue LED as for measuring light, maximum actinic PAR = 3000 μmol m-2 s-1, maximum PAR of saturation pulses = 6000 μmol m-2s-1 adjustable at increments of 500 μmol m-2 s-1
Measuring light: Red (655 nm) LED, modulation frequencies and PAR as described for MINI-PAM-II/B. Fluorescence at wavelengths greater than 700 nm is measured
Actinic light: Same red LED as for measuring light, maximum PAR of actinic light and saturation pulses as described for MINI-PAM-II/B
Far red light: Peak emission at 735 nm
Signal detection: PIN photodiode protected by long-pass and a short-pass filters
