Rapid methods to assess the chlorophyll and carotenoid content of leaves and fruits using a microplate reader

Rapid methods to assess the chlorophyll and carotenoid content of leaves and fruits using a microplate reader

Annals of Applied Biology 123(3): 673-684

Rapid, small-scale, accurate and inexpensive procedures have been developed to assess pigment content of leaves and tomato fruits for plant breeding programs. New formulas allowing the use of a microplate reader instead of a spectrophotometer have been computed. The theoretical background is presented for users to calibrate their own apparatus.
