This respirometry course teaches participants how to use indirect calorimetry and behavioral analysis in metabolic screening. We will apply techniques for measuring real-time O2 consumption, CO2 production, and water loss for laboratory rodents. Measurement systems also include food & water intake, body mass monitoring, wheel running, and voluntary activity. Data analysis is a significant focus of this course – so feel free to bring your own data sets.
Cost: $2,976 per participant. Included in this fee are all laboratory costs and course materials.
Course Materials: All coursework materials are provided including copies of all presentations.
This respirometry course – held in Las Vegas, NV – teaches participants how to measure metabolic rates using indirect calorimetry. We will apply techniques for measuring real-time O2 consumption, CO2 production and water vapor loss for subjects ranging from small invertebrates to large mammals. Participants can work with single animal and high through-put systems in both open-flow and stop-flow.
Hands On: The course leads participants through all steps of setting up apparatus, configuring data acquisition, acquiring data, and analyzing data both manually and automatically.
Cost: $2,170 per participant. Included in this fee are all laboratory costs and course materials.
