The CI-202 Portable Laser Area Meter uses advanced laser technology to provide researchers with a precise and convenient way to measure leaf area. The high-resolution laser scanner, data logger, and display are all enclosed in a durable, handheld scanner and detachable palette.
The CI-202 is used to perform non-destructive measurements on the leaves of living plants by placing the leaf on the palette and sliding the scanner over the leaf, enabling collection of data from the same plant, or even the same leaf, throughout its life span. The transparent, protective sheath on the palette makes it easy to capture precise leaf area measurement on tender or intricate leaves.
Utilizing advanced laser technology, this meter provides a precise, convenient method to measure leaf area (or the areas of leaf-like objects). Simply slide the scanner over the leaf to obtain accurate, non-destructive measurements. The meter measures area, length, width, and perimeter and also calculates shape factor and aspect ratio. No calibration is needed. You can easily collect data from the same plant or the same leaf throughout a life span. Precise measurements of even tender leaves can be done by using a transparent sheath for protection. The unit’s high-resolution laser scanner, data logger, and display are enclosed in a single, handheld palette unit. A USB port allows for data transfer to a printer or computer. Included are a palette-style scan board, laser scanner with built-in control unit, internal batteries, battery charger, communication software, one additional transparent film, hard-shell instrument carrying case, and operating manual.
