Classic Fluorometers

Aquation’s Classic Fluorometer series make chlorophyll a fluorescence measurements as simple as possible. These chlorophyll fluorescence systems measure the quantum yield of PSII photochemistry using the saturating pulse technique (PAM technique).  Both actinic and far red lights are included.  Users can develop their own custom programs.  They can also use preinstalled programs for Rapid Light Curves, Induction Curves and Recovery Curves.  Measurements and programs can be automatically repeated at regular intervals.

We are pleased to introduce the Bacteriochlorophyll Fluorescence Sensor, which is essentially a Classic Fluorescence Sensor designed to measure the fluorescence of bacteriochlorophyll a and b.  Operation of the sensor is the same as other chlorophyll a sensors as described above.

The rugged design and simplicity of these chlorophyll fluorometers makes them ideal for commercial, laboratory and teaching applications.
