Classic Submersible Sensor

Aquation's Classic Submersible Fluorescence Sensor measures chlorophyll fluorescence. With the modulated "PAM" technique, this sensor returns an estimate of the efficiency of photochemical energy conversion, useful in calculating plant photosynthetic efficiency. Modified sensors can measure chlorophyll or phycocyanin concentrations. An optional light pipe extension and sample holder enables measurement of samples away from the sensor, avoiding shading.
