Experiments Demonstrate Seoul Semiconductor SunLike Series Natural Spectrum LEDs Enhance Crop Yields, Antioxidant Content

Share

Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ 046890), a leading global innovator of LED technology, announced the results of a series of experiments that demonstrated a higher growth rate and higher flavonol (antioxidant) content in crops grown under SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs than those grown under standard white LEDs.

The experiments were conducted on lettuce using SunLike Series LED lighting and standard white LED lighting of the same color temperature and light intensity. After two weeks of crop growth, the fresh weight and flavonol content of the lettuce were measured and compared. The fresh weight of lettuce grown under SunLike Series LEDs came in at 43.0g, 13.5% higher than the yield produced by standard white LEDs. In addition, the flavonol content had a measured antioxidant effect of 0.55, 41% higher in comparison to lettuce grown under the standard LEDs.

This significant difference in growth and flavonol content is directly related to light spectrum output, defined as the combined wavelengths of energy produced by a light source. SunLike Series LEDs were able to promote more growth due to having a spectral output that more closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight. Thus, the experiment concluded that SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs may shorten the growth period of crops, while enhancing yield, quality, and marketability.

“According to the results of this experiment, LED light sources with the same measured correlated color temperature and intensity, but different spectral output, may produce different effects on the growth rate and nutritional content of crops. Therefore, growers using greenhouses and indoor farms will benefit by selecting horticulture LED lighting sources that offer a natural spectrum close to sunlight – one of the key factors in the growth cycle of plants,” said Nam Ki-bum, sales executive vice-president of Seoul Semiconductor. “As an optimized horticulture LED solution, Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs will deliver significant benefits to enhance growth cycles and the year-round development of crops, as well as improve the overall growth environment.”

SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs have been adopted for numerous horticultural applications as a lighting solution for indoor farms, including the horticultural lighting specialist company Rofianda B.V, located in the Netherlands.

Study Investigates the Utility of Masimo ORi™, Oxygen Reserve Index, to Reduce Hyperoxia in Critically Ill Patients26.8.2019 09:00:00 EESTPress release

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that in a randomized controlled study involving 150 ICU patients recently published as a letter in Intensive Care Medicine, researchers investigated whether monitoring with Masimo ORi™ (Oxygen Reserve Index) could reduce the time critically ill patients spend with moderate hyperoxia, compared to monitoring with oxygen saturation (SpO2) alone.1 ORi is an index of oxygenation in the moderate hyperoxic region, defined as arterial partial pressure of oxygen, PaO2 , in the range of 100 to 200 mmHg). As an “index” with a scale between 0.0 and 1.0, ORi can be trended to notify clinicians of changes in a patient’s oxygen reserve. This press release features multimedia.

Under the French Presidency, the G7 summit in Biarritz brings together the heads of state and government of the largest economies. This summit comes three months after the digital technology ministers meeting of G7 countries in Paris where the need to strengthen international digital cooperation was a key focal point of the debates. Discussions are still ongoing to resolve the challenges of the data economy, and the free flow of data in a trusted environment. Several international initiatives in favor of data circulation took place in recent months. As part of the Digital Single Market, the European Commission announced a new regulation on the free flow of non-personal data. The United States initiated a federal plan for data strategy. At the G20, Japan proposed the Osaka Track initiative to standardize the international rules for data flow. According to Dawex, the leading data exchange technology company and operator of the largest data marketplace, the flow of data in the G7 countrie
