bi·om·e·ter

(bī-om'ĕ-ter),
A device for measuring carbon dioxide given off by organisms and, hence, for determining the quantity of living matter present.
[bio- + G. metron, measure]

biometer

Physiology
A device used to measure CO2 generated by living tissues.
 
Pseudo-medicine
A type of “diagnostic” pendulum developed in the early 20th century by Dr Oscar Brunler and M Bovis; the biometer was used in psychometric analysis to detect energy waves said to emanate from all living beings.
