MMPC: Metabolic Regulation Core List of Services Master

Whole body VO2 and VCO2 is measured continuously in conscious mice using a very flexible system. The core of this system is the Oxymax Deluxe System. Oxymax software allows for calibration, experiment execution and the review of obtained data. Data can be exported or reviewed within the Oxymax System. The system used is flexible and sensitive enough to measure small changes in VO2 and VCO2. It can be used to measure resting or exercising gas exchange and energy expenditure.
We also have a new system Promethion to be installed in April 2011 (Sable Systems Promethion; Las Vegas, Nevada). Like the commonly used CLAMS system (Columbus Instruments) energy expenditure, food and water intake and running wheels are part of the system. The advantage is the animals can be housed in their standard home cages with normal bedding.
