    Great news and less great news

    by  • January 20, 2014 • 0 Comments

    You can select any two variables and compare them on the X and Y axis.  This makes it easy to identify relationships between variables, and between populations.

    The Great News Increased measurement accuracy by over 100 times You heard right – 100 times! Our old detector was actually pretty capable – we could see even very small changes in absorbance like ECS (electrochemical shift) measurements which the vast majority of other handheld fluorometers don’t even attempt to measure. But the new...

    Definitely dead

    In getting ready for our trip to the Open Hardware Summit, we wanted to create some short wizbang experiments to show what Photosynq can do. These experiments are focused around measuring pulse modulated fluorescence (find more about it on our ‘how it works‘ page, or this more in depth but accessible summary), which can...

    While Robert’s working on the LED controller board / signal processor / micro SC card holder / voltage reference board (yep, definitely multifunctional), it’s my job to see which cell phones will communicate with the Teensy-based Photosynq via the standard USB connection. Answer: Not many. Here’s the problem in a nutshell: For two things...

    In the last few weeks we’ve been working diligently on getting the photosynq handheld device actually handheld. Until now we had taken data using the standard Ideaspec hardware but with the new LEDs, detectors, and light guide setup. Now it’s time to shed the Ideaspec hardware totally and go completely cordless. We’re almost there....
