Photosynthesis provides the essential elements that support life on Earth, and measuring photosynthesis is essential to quantify and model the regional-scale productivity of managed and natural ecosystems of leaves. In addition to this, photosynthesis is important to the agricultural industry and ecologists studying climate change. Therefore, the development of new techniques and methods for efficient and accurate measurement of photosynthesis is critical to advancing research in plant science.
Rapid developments in the field of biophysics are providing innovative directions for photosynthesis research. Researchers at CD BioSciences are focused on developing biophysics-based measurement and analysis methods to provide technical support and analytical services for photosynthesis-related measurements needed in our clients' research projects. We offer not only conventional service techniques such as gas exchange and chlorophyll-a fluorescence measurements, but also a variety of advanced spectroscopic techniques to accomplish multiple measurements such as determining the relative stoichiometry of the thylakoid membrane energization and the activity of chloroplast ATP synthase in intact leaves.

In addition to these two conventional service techniques, we offer advanced spectroscopic techniques for additional photosynthesis-related measurements, including the following:
