As a result of the LI-600 Free Trial, researchers like you have endeavored to measure plants of various shapes, sizes, and color with the LI-600 Porometer/Fluorometer. From tropical forests and hydroponic greenhouses, the LI-600 has traversed continents—reaching unique organizations and universities with a desire to learn more about plant physiology and the natural world. Read about these research adventures here.
Combining the speed of the LI-600 with the details from the LI-6800 provided a breadth and depth of measurements for Dr. Lemoine’s lab.
“The LI-600 could increase our data collection by an order of magnitude over the summer, just due to its ease of use, transportability, and speed.”
Professor Susanne von Caemmerer and technical officer Soumi Bala measured stomatal conductance and electron transport rate in tobacco and green foxtail (Setaria viridis) with the LI-600.
“The actual values measured agreed for both tobacco and Setaria with what we are used to seeing with measurements from the LI-6800.”
Live oak leaves are a little tricky to measure, but that does not stop Dr. Wolfe.
“It is a big leap from the previous model, the LI-1600.”

Putting the LI-600 through the paces, Dr. Boris Lazarević got busy screening phenotypic differences.
“I thought I was not using it properly because it is so fast and straightforward.”
When plant physiologist Kellie Walters measured delicate lettuce leaves, the LI-600 was there to help.
“It takes the guesswork out of things.”
Aquatic plant ecologist Taylor Sloey measured wetland grasses in tough terrain.
“I would recommend this product to anyone interested in collecting F and gsw measurements rapidly, or in physically strenuous settings.”
From the Swiss cheese plant (Monstera deliciosa) to the dragon tree (Dracaena draco), tropical plant ecologist Aaron Hogan measured over 40 unique tree species with the LI-600.
“The instrument exceeded my expectations…I have to say, in my estimation, this instrument lives up to the hype.”

Horticulturist Jake Emling used the LI-600 to mass study entire greenhouses of tomato, lettuce, and Cannabis species.
“I found the most useful application to be the rapid sampling of plants throughout the greenhouses.”
