    Chlorophyll Content Meter

    The CCM-300 is a unique fluorometer that is tuned for the measurement of chlorophyll content in samples that have traditionally been difficult to analyse non-destructively. This compact, hand-held instrument measures the ratio between the chlorophyll fluorescence at 735nm and 700-710nm. This ratio is linearly proportional to chlorophyll concentrations as high as 675mg m-2, with a ...
