XYL'EM plus

Xyl'em embolism-meter

Studies involving measurements of Xylem embolism are becoming more and more frequent.  INRA has developed a stand alone system called Xy'lem-Plus and asked Bronkhorst France to sell it.

This rugged and portable instrument can be used immediately in a laboratory or in the field as a stand-alone instrument or connected to a PC. We can adapt, if necessary, the specifications of the Xyl'em-Plus to your application.
