Skye Instruments

Skye are happy to yet again announce an upgrade for their long standing Leaf Area and Analysis Systems and Root Length Measurement System, which have spanned well over 20 years. The software has come a long way since being first launched in DOS mode in the mid 1980s and now once again offers the latest technology and Microsoft compatibility.More analysis and measurement features:

  • Image capture card for a PC is no longer required<

  • Software uses direct connection to USB cameras

  • Dedicated Root Length and Analysis software

Image capture cards installed in a PC are a thing of the past, SkyeLeaf and SkyeRoot programs can now capture images at the click of a button from USB "Plug & Play" video cameras or scanners. Photos taken with digital cameras or even mobile phones can also be easily imported for analysis, with no extra hardware needed.A highly portable system is available utilising a laptop in the field to take measurements on leaves during growth. Alternatively a dedicated laboratory setup is offered for the rapid analysis of hundreds of leaves and roots at the end of an experimental trial.The new, automatic calibration function makes quick and easy work of setting the pixel size, as well as giving more accurate measurements. Additional features also include root branches and tips.
