This is part of the ongoing work during pifCamp on my Lab-in-the-Wild

DIY sap press

just use a garlic press :-)

What the heck is a "petiole"?

"In botany, the petiole is the stalk that attaches the leaf blade to the stem. The petiole is the transition between the stem and the leaf blade."

Most Common Methdos

NIR Spectroscopy

Near Infrared Photography

as usual the people from publiclab have already done a great job!

Infragram IMG 0511-split.png

Flame test

A great use of our spectroscopes!

Atomic Absorbtion Spectroscopy

Quick Nitrate-N Tests

Chlorophyl Meters

Simple Cholorophyl extraction methods:

Hmmmm, checking the MultispeQ again

Protein Content Colorimetric Assays

This link helped me a lot:

There are quite a few out there. The Biuret test, testing peptide bonds with some copper-ions, and it's modifications the BCA and Lowry tests. most suitable for our first experiments seems to be the Bradford assay with it's color change from brown to blue.

Literature and Links

Handbook of Methods for Plant Analysis

Plant analyses are usually carried out on prepared samples in a laboratory under controlled conditions. Testing of forage samples may be conducted with near infrared spectrometry (NIR) in mobile laboratories. Plant tissue tests or quick tests can be conducted in the field on living plant tissue, plant sap, or fluid.

Not so sure about that...
