Applications

Our instrumentation is in use all over the world by researchers working on an enormous range of different applications and projects. The application notes below highlight the diverse way in which Hansatech Instruments systems can be used to achieve project goals. Some application notes provide information on typical methodology used to answer questions, some solutions for using our instrumentation to analyse more challenging sample-types whereas others provide detailed guidelines on completely novel uses for some of our most popular products.

We are always looking for new and interesting ways in which our instrumentation is used. If you are interested in co-authoring an application note with us, please get in touch today!

Rapid Light Curves using Handy PEA+

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.
