Development of an automated continuous flow system for measuring respiration and ethylene production of horticultural crops

Agricultural Research Seoul National University 12(1): 21-26
Development of an automated continuous flow system for measuring respiration and ethylene production of horticultural crops
Respiration and ethylene production are important physiological factors in studies with horticultural products. For the efficient and accurate determination of these processes, a continuous gas flow system was designed which utilizes an infrared gas analyzer for measuring respiratory rate and a gas chromatograph for determining ethylene production. The system is automated for sampling, analyzing and recording, and is computerized for calculating and plotting. Samples are selected periodically through the use of an electrically activated sample loop, and the effluent gas is automatically analyzed. For large-scale studies, automation permits large numbers of measurements from many chambers in an efficient manner.
