PSI manufactures a higly diverse product family of fluorcams - imaging fluorometers - that can measure in samples ranging from isolated chloroplasts or individual cells to single leaves and small plants or even to large sets of plants in a field or in a greenhouse on a conveyor belt.
- Micro-imaging in the Fluorescence Kinetic Microscope
- Chlorophyll and GFP imaging in leaves and small plants can be measured in a diverse FluorCam product line
- Imaging in larger plants in a field or in set of plants on a trayscan system in the Customized FluorCams
Open FluorCam FC 800-O is a highly modular instrument with flexible geometry. The LED panels and the light source generating saturating flashes can be arranged at various angles and distances from the sample. Also, the position of the camera relative to the sample is adjustable.
Closed FluorCam FC 800-C represents a highly innovative, world-wide used system of multispectral kinetic fluorescence imaging. It consists of a CCD camera and four fixed LED panels. The LED panels provide uniform irradiance over samples up to 13 x 13 cm – suitable for small plants, detached leaves, algal dilutions, etc. The system allows dark adaptation.
Closed GFPCam FC 800-C/1010GFP serves for various applications using green fluorescent proteins in molecular and cellular biology. The device is equipped with a motorized, software-controlled filter wheel, which provides quick and simple transition between the GFP and chlorophyl fluorescence detection and imaging.
Handy FluorCam FC 1000-H is a portable system designed for kinetically resolved fluorescence imaging of leaves and small plants both in a field and laboratory. The whole instrument can be carried in a convenient bag over the shoulder and can run on batteries.
Handy GFPCam FC 1000-H/GFP is a modified version of the popular Handy FluorCam. Its unique construction allows both GFP imaging and chlorophyll fluorescence imaging. It can be favorably used for lab and field experiments.
Leaf Chamber Fluorcam FC 1000-LC is a unique system that allows you to conduct chlorophyll fluorescence imaging on a leaf maintained in a leaf chamber, while measuring leaf gas exchange at the same time. The Fluorcam unit can be attached to leaf chambers provided by most manufacturers of leaf gas exchange equipment.
Fluorescence Kinetic Microscope allows measurements with various user-selectable excitation and emission wavelengths as well as the combination of micro-imaging measurements with spectrally resolved or ultra fast spot-measurements of fluorescence and absorbance kinetics.
XY-Plane is an elaborate fluorescence imaging system that has been optimized for high throughput screening and multispectral analysis of multiple samples in large growth trays. It permits easy robotic manipulation.
Transect FluorCam is an open fluorescence imaging system for large-scale screening in laboratory or scanning in field. It scans plants along a two meters long transect.
Rover FluorCam is a customized fluorescence imaging system for large-scale scanning in field. It is a remarkably stable structure, yet its large and solid wheels allow easy movement through an experimental field. The system allows dark adaptation.
PlantScreen systems are designed and manufactured to to suit the customer's specific needs. They can be optimized for numerous plant morphologies and structures - from Arabidopsis to manifold crop plants. The conveyor system can be configured for single pots, multiple pots or trays, providing flexibility of use with numerous different species, or with a single species throughout its growth cycle.
