Understanding the subtle or complex indicators of physiological trade-offs in an animal’s health or lifespan involves consideration of energy balance, food preference, environmental factors and animal behavior. Sable Systems supports the metabolic phenotyping community’s efforts to establish relevant standards for model animal calorimetry phenotyping studies. Sable has focused our years of innovative experience and scientific expertise to generate confidence in translational results that lead to the causes or cures of debilitating diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and cancer.
- Precise acquisition of metabolic data
- High temporal resolution for metabolic rate (MR), respiratory quotent (RQ), and resting energy requirements (RER)
- Second by second quantification of gross and fine motor activity.
- Differentiate between food uptake and food stashing
- Differentiate between large ingested meals and micro meals
- Interchangeable instrumentation between mouse and rat cages
- Designed for animal safety, stress reduction and optimal enrichment including 15 air exchanges per cage per hour as per IACUC standards.
