Using a field spectroradiometer such as the Spectral Evolution PSR+
or the
RS-3500, a researcher can perform qualitative analysis for
seed discrimination from large batches of seeds quickly and
accurately. By comparing seed spectra according to absorption
features, a researcher engaged in plant breeding can find variants
with a desired improved trait from among chemically treated or
irradiated seeds.

The PSR+ and RS-3500 are both portable full range, UV-VIS-NIR
instruments designed for field use that provide high resolution/low
noise scans. The PSR+ and RS-3500 cover the full spectral range
from 350-2500nm. Available accessories include a benchtop probe
with sample compactor, a contact probe with light source and a leaf
clip for plant measurements.

The PSR+ is available with EZ-ID sample identification software and
includes a Library Builder module so you can build your own specific
seed library to compare samples against. The Library Builder allows
you to scan a known sample and include the scan and all relevant
metadata (operator, location sample name, etc.) in the library for use
in matching against unknown samples. For seed identification, you
could build a library of known seed spectra and identify against that
library to screen fr variants with desired improved traits.

EZ-ID with Library Builder allows you to build your own library from known
samples for comparison against unknown target samples.
