LD1/2 Electrode Chamber

Gas-phase electrode chamber

  • Electrode chamber for oxygen evolution/uptake assays from tissue samples of up to 10cm2
  • Black acetal construction with cast-acrylic top window allowing uniform sample illumination
  • Removable top window replaced by interface adapter allowing simultaneous fluorescence measurements with FMS fluorimeters
  • Water jacket for effective temperature control of the sample & electrode disc
  • Base-mounted S1 oxygen electrode disc forming the floor of the reaction vessel.

LD1/2 Electrode Chamber Overview

LD1/2 Electrode Chamber | Hansatech Instruments | Oxygen electrode and chlorophyll fluorescence measurement systems for cellular respiration and photosynthesis research

The LD1/2 leafdisc electrode chamber is a simple device for measuring oxygen exchange from a 10cm2 leafdisc mounted within a sealed, gas-tight sample-chamber.

The LD1/2 is constructed from black acetal with a cast acrylic top window allowing the sample to be evenly illuminated for photosynthesis measurements using the LS2 high-intensity white light source.

A prepared S1 oxygen electrode disc mounts into the base of the LD1/2 with the dome of the electrode forming the floor of the sample-chamber.

Temperature of the sample can be accurately controlled by connecting an external circulating water bath (not included) to the water jacket inputs of the LD1/2.
