A cell pressure probe measures cell turgor of plants, and can extract cell solution directly from actively growing plants. The pressure probe technique and the probe electrospray ionization (PESI) mass spectrometry (MS) can be combined together in order to analyze cell molecular components in intact growing crops. When a small amount of engine oil additives was mixed with silicon oil in the pressure probe, ionization of cell metabolites was successfully conducted for MS analyses. By using physiological molecular information, environmental conditionscan be adjusted optimally to grow crops in plant growth factories.
