Featuring the latest advancements in non-dispersive infrared gas analysis technology
At LI-COR, we know gas analysis. That is why our gas analyzers are trusted to make the most important measurements around the world, from the Mauna Loa Observatory to regional networks that monitor greenhouse gas emissions using the eddy covariance method. This expertise sets the LI-6800 apart from other photosynthesis systems.
The LI-6800 features one of the best differential CO2/H2O gas analyzers we have ever developed. The differential gas analyzer consists of two analyzers—sample and reference—that are machined from a single aluminum block, and that share a number of critical components. The sample analyzer measures air that has been exposed to the leaf, whereas the reference analyzer measures conditioned reference air. Photosynthetic assimilation is computed from flow rate, leaf area, and the difference between the readings from the sample and reference gas analyzers.
The gas analyzers in the LI-6800 are highly durable and stable, ensuring that the LI-6800 will be a valuable investment for many years.
