Rapid Light Curves (RLCs) have been used in photosynthesis research since the late 1990s, and are typically measured using Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM) fluorometers. This novel functionality allows Handy PEA+ users to extend the range of analysis protocols available to include a measurement technique not typically associated with this type of instrument. Better still, measurement of RLCs can be performed straight out of the box with no updates or modifications to the system necessary!
The application note is supplied along with a pre-configured Handy PEA+ protocol that can be uploaded directly to your Handy PEA+ instrument. A custom Microsoft Excel® template to perform the graphical and statistical analysis required to interpret RLC data has also been included in the download; full guidelines on the use of the protocol and template are included within the application note itself.
Download the application note and data templates from the link below to see how the Handy PEA+; a non-modulated, continuous excitation fluorometer, can easily be used to measure RLCs.
