Respirometry can be integrated with thermal measurement and control
Depending on the method used, Sable Drosophila metabolic screening systems are capable of measuring the metabolic rates of small groups of Drosophila, or even of individual Drosophila in real time. This unique capability provides a powerful tool for biomedical and basic research requiring metabolic data. Real-time metabolic data on individual flies preserves vital information on inter-individual variability, increasing the power of statistical tests.
Drosophila systems are custom-configured according to your requirements, with typical systems measuring from 7 to 15 flies in rapid succession. This can be increased according to your requirements. Metabolic rate is measured via CO2 production rate, which is a highly sensitive and widely accepted method. When monitoring respiratory quotients (RQ) is of interest, the FC-2 differential oxygen analyzer would be added to the system.
