Can the PhytoFlash measure carbon fixation rates?

The PhytoFlash will not measure Carbon Fixation Rates.  However, users can calculate Carbon Fixation Rates if other measurements are taken (e.g. Carbon per cell).  So, measurements made outside the realm of the PhytoFlash can be used with the reading PhytoFlash gives to come up with Carbon Fixation Rates, Oxygen Evolution, etc.
