atLEAF CHL STD chlorophyll meter

What is it?

atLEAF CHL STD is a powerful, handheld, easy to use device for noninvasively measuring the relative chlorophyll content of green leaf plants. Chlorophyll content can be an indicator of the plant’s condition.


How does it work?

Plant relative chlorophyll concentration is measured by inserting a leaf into the device aperture. Green leaves of up to 0.1 inch (3mm) thickness can be measured. It only takes one press of the key to perform a basic measurement.

By utilizing the four atLEAF CHL STD keys you can:
  • view up to 64 measurements stored in the device’s memory
  • delete the most recently performed measurement
  • delete all measurements
  • perform instrument calibration

    Note: there is an inaccurate description in the CHL STD user manual Ver. 1.0 on page 10.
    The following feature is not implemented in the CHL STD meter:
  • By pressing and holding down the Enter key, the device will continue to do successive measurements while automatically calculating the mean value. When releasing the Enter key the calculated mean value is displayed and stored.

  • Each atLEAF device is assembled, tested and calibrated in the United States.
