Multiplexed metabolic and behavioral measurement system for mice that enables greater statistical power with fewer animals and simultaneous testing of more hypotheses.
Promethion Core major advantages include:
Expandability - The system is based on individual wheeled rack modules comprised of 16 cages, independent mass flow controllers, analyzers, pumps, and onboard real-time acquisition and analysis module. Facilities can start with a single rack system. Multiple Promethion Core 16-cage systems can be networked together for unmatched parallel processing power and highest reproducibility, providing the flexibility for simultaneously running multiple studies or one large study on the same equipment.
Web Based Data Management - Real-time animal data can be securely accessed via authorized desktop or mobile devices, including tablets and smart phones.
High Definition Analysis - SableHD™ High Definition Technology provides industry-leading accuracy, highest sampling rate, and unbeatable resolution of rapidly changing metabolic data. This includes preservation of all raw data and directly measured water vapor compensation.
Ease of Maintenance - Sable design innovations enable technicians to efficiently manage animals, maintain the cages and clean the system. Web-based tools allow easy diagnostic assessment per cage, per rack or across all racks.
The water-tight instrumentation housing allows the entire rack - including gas analyzers and flow control instrumentation - to be run through the cage washer for easy cleaning.
Continuous or multiplexed systems for metabolic and behavioral phenotyping of mice, rats, and large animals, or human room calorimetry.
Promethion major advantages include:
High Definition Analysis - Exclusive SableHD™ high definition digital technology provides industry-leading accuracy, highest sampling rate, and unbeatable resolution of rapidly changing metabolic data.
Integration and Expandability - Fully-integrated Promethion systems optimize overall performance, provide turn-key operation, and can be upgraded to Promethion Core as your needs change.
Preservation of Raw Data - Your actual study data is preserved in its original form with up to 1-second resolution, ensuring full traceability for GLP compliance or peer review. Other systems untraceably alter then discard your raw data, preventing study validation or re-analysis.
Water Vapor Compensation - Promethion indirect calorimetry systems measure water vapor dilution directly, eliminating sample gas drying and significantly increasing accuracy.
Pull-Mode Indirect Calorimetry - Promethion calorimetry systems secure greater accuracy and animal safety. Without a sealed cage prone to deteriorating seals, errors caused by "push-mode" leaks are eliminated. Your animal is in a low-stress environment, safeguarded in the event of a power failure.
Home Cage Advantage - Minimizes stress effects and their attendant metabolic/biochemical artifacts
Extremely flexible systems for metabolic measurement from drosophila to whales, and from lab bench to field.
Classic Line major advantages include:
Flexibility and Ease of Use - Sable Classic system components can also be used in stand-alone capacity, providing unmatched performance, intuitive operation, local control and total flexibility.
Quality and Standardization - High performance, intuitive operation and trusted methodologies provide a platform for consistency and standardization.
Preservation of Raw Data - Sable respirometry systems preserve study data in original form with high resolution, ensuring full traceability for GLP compliance or peer review. Other systems permanently alter your collected data, preventing study validation or re-analysis.
Water Vapor Compensation Option - Sable indirect calorimetry systems can measure water vapor dilution directly, eliminating sample gas drying and significantly increasing accuracy.
Push or Pull-Mode Indirect Calorimetry - Provides maximum flexibility of system configuration to meet diverse research needs.
Field instruments are research grade analyzers integrated into a rugged, portable case. While designed for rigors of field work, these systems also double as compact in-lab systems. Sable portable field systems integrate the highest quality gas analyzers into a compact, lightweight and virtually indestructible carrying case.
- the number of animals that can be sequentially measured with all the data fully coordinated and synchronized into one database on one computer. Multiple systems can be used simultaneously on different computers using the IM-3 interface.
- the IM-3 enables independent setup and analysis of each animal, researchers can design experiments with a large N (all animals) or multiple experiments with small N that are executed independently of each other.
- Continuous respirometry dedicates a single full-time analyzer to each animal (as compared to multiplexed respirometry, which uses a “shared” analyzer to monitor multiple animals).
