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: $2,140 per participant. Included in this fee are all laboratory costs and course materials.
