Closed FC 800-C

Closed FluorCam FC 800-C is a popular, best-selling system for imaging of chlorophyll fluorescence kinetics which can be extended to multispectral version allowing detection of various fluorescent signals.

Closed FluorCam FC 800-C represents a highly innovative, robust and user-friendly world-wide used system for combined multispectral and kinetic fluorescence imaging. It consists of a CCD camera, four to five fixed LED panels (4 + 1 additional, which is not included in the standard setup) and, optionally, of a filter wheel equipped with up to 7 different emission filters. The LED panels provide uniform irradiance over an area 90 × 90 mm – suitable for imaging of small plants (such as Arabidopsis thaliana), detached leaves, mosses, lichens, plated algal colonies or algal suspensions, etc. The system is very compact and allows easy dark adaptation of an investigated sample.

The Closed FluorCam FC 800-C generates images of fluorescence signal at any moment of the experiment and presents them using a false color scale. Full kinetic analysis is available. In all applications, the camera allows imaging of fluorescence transients that are induced by actinic light or by saturating flashes. The timing and amplitude of actinic irradiance are determined by user-defined protocols. The Closed FluorCam FC 800-C also includes a high-performance PC and comprehensive software package comprising full system control, data acquisition and image processing. For an experienced professional, the software offers a sophisticated programming language that can be used for designing novel timing and measuring sequences.
