Body composition can be measured using Minispec Model mq7.5 (7.5 mHz) manufactured and tested by Bruker Instruments. The Minispec is a benchtop pulsed NMR (7 T) system that gives global values of the fat and fluid components of the subject, from which the lean tissue component is determined in mice up to 60 g. This instrument is calibrated regularly using a phantom of known composition. The MiniSpec does not require mice to be anesthetized or killed and requires < 1 min.
