Potential COI[edit]

This article has been heavily edited by IPs/accounts belonging to ADC BioScientific, a manufacturer of products described in the text. Because of this potential conflict of interest, content should be checked for neutral point of view and promotional content. -- Ed (Edgar181) 12:35, 17 April 2014 (UTC)


The term integrated fluorometer is created by the company(ADC) for an instrument combination of gas exchange analysis instrument and chlorophyll fluorescence as it is used commonly in plant science. Such system combinations are provided by other companies e.g. Licor, Walz, PP-Systems but are not called integrated fluorometer in the literature/scientific publications. This term can be legitimated as integrated chlorophyll fluorometer by the fact that the chloropyhll fluorometer is mechanically attached to the gas exchange system and the analysis allows the estimation of the mesophyll conductance by modelling from parameters analyzed by gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorometry. But the term integrated fluorometer is highly misleading as fluorometry is widely used in science. There are various kinds of fluorometers –and many of them are integrated into other analysis systems. This article is a promotional article for their gas exchange/chlorophyll fluorometer system and I request its deletionFelim 5 (talk) 12:11, 18 December 2014 (UTC)


I changed the article in a way that it became tolerable. Still I recommend its deletion as the name integrated fluorometer is misleading and of promotional nature. It is a gas exchange system with coupled chlorophyll fluorescence measurement. This is a common tool in plant science but never termed integrated fluorometer. There is already a pretty good article about gas exchange systems called photosynthesis system. If this page is supposed to be kept it could be integrated in the photosynthesis system article.
