Evaluations were made by measuring the height of the seedlings from the collar to the apex extremity, with the help of a measuring tape and the stem's diameter at the level of the 2nd knot, obtained with the help of a digital pachymeter.
In response to the ever-growing demand for portability, we now offer a hand-held autorefractor, a hand-held non-myd retinal camera, a range of hand-held tonometers, a hand-held pachymeter, and a hand-held slit lamp," said Krysten Williams, Carlton sales and marketing manager.
The new devices include the P2000 A-Scan (used to measure axial length of the eye); P2200 Pachymeter (used for measuring corneal thickness); P2500 A-Scan/Pachymeter (a combination of the two stand-alone devices); P2700 AB/Scan (an ultrasound imaging device for detecting abnormalities within the eye); and P37-II (a more advanced AB/Scan used to provide portability for ophthalmology veterinary applications).
