• Question: Can we use rPi camera for fluorescence measurement in plants

    I am working on studying signalling in plants. Currently trying to make a portable system that can measure intensity of fluorescence in plant leaves infused with different fluorescent dyes.

    Any ideas which kind of webcam or camera might be suitable for such application. I have been experimenting with rPi camera since more than a month. But apparently, picamera looks too much programming demanding.

    Any suggestions, thoughts, brain storming - most welcome.

    Hi - i wonder if @gbathree may have some insights into this -- the #multispeq may be a way forward on this?

    How bright is the fluorescence? What color, and how long does it last? Do you shine a light on the leaves to make them fluoresce? What color? How long?

    Flourescence is not very bright nor too low (depends how much dye i inject), emission in green band, might last few 10s of ms.
