Using the CI-710s SpectraVue Leaf Spectrometer, Dr. Catherine Simpson and her research team at Texas Tech University are gaining a deeper understanding of the nutritional and physiological qualities of various edible flowers and leafy vegetables over time.
As a beta user, Dr. Simpson and her colleagues were among the first to test pigment distribution and other bioactive compounds of plants using the SpectraVue’s powerful spectrometer and suite of analysis software. The team was able to quickly examine and assess their plants in a series of experiments examining the effect of different substrates on plant pigments and physiological development.
