This respirometry course – held in Las Vegas, NV – teaches participants how to use indirect calorimetry in metabolic screening. We will apply techniques for measuring real-time O2 consumption, CO2 production and water vapor 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.
Hands On: The course leads participants through all steps of setting up apparatus, configuring data acquisition, acquiring data, and analyzing data with the Promethion metabolic screening system.
Cost: $2,830 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.
