Handy GFPCam FC 1000-H/GFP is a modified version of the popular Handy FluorCam. Its unique construction allows both time resolved chlorophyll ﬂuorescence imaging and GFP imaging. Handy GFPCam is a lightweight, portable system designed for imaging of leaves, small plants, leaf segments, mosses, lichens, seeds, roots, tissues on plates or algal colonies both in a field and laboratory.
The Handy GFPCam is an easily portable system, it can be powered from the power supply or it can run on batteries provided in a convenient bag carried on the shoulder.
Handy GFPCam is typically produced with red-orange ﬂashing LED panels (620 nm) and blue actinic/saturating pulse LED panels (455 nm). Equipped with four additional infrared LEDs. Handling of larger leaves (e.g., tobacco) is simplified if an additional leaf clip with gentle lock/release mechanism is mounted. Handy GFPCam 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 Handy GFPCam is delivered with a laptop computer preinstalled with a comprehensive software package comprising full system control, Wizard with the most frequently used experimental protocols, 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.

The leaf clip simplifies the process of collecting fluorescence images on vegetation. The unique design includes a gentle lock/release system for holding the target leaf in place without detachment or excessive disturbance. It also allows for dark adaptation.
A useful supplement for comfortable field measurements. Weight: 3.6 kg; size: 220 x 200 x 130 mm.
Additional Protective Glasses
Radiation safety glasses protecting against excessive LED radiation – equipped with side cover and protective filters. One pair of glasses is provided with the device free of charge.
Advanced Multiple Function for FluorCam Software
Software upgrade enabling multiple scripting functions for automatic initiation and measurement of scheduled FluorCam protocols and for automatic data storage. Advanced multiple function feature allows to define time of protocol initiation with user-defined protocol, apply user defined mask for feature segmentation, automatically subtract the background based on the mask definition and analyze the measured data. The are stored as TAR files with time and date description. Useful for circadian cycle study.
