LAS VEGAS, September 27, 2016 – Sable Systems successfully held a two-day course on room calorimetry, in coordination with the international symposium Regulation of Energy Balance: Classical Concepts and Novel Insights, September 10, 2016 at the University of Hohenheim, Germany.  The room calorimetry course was taught by John Lighton, PhD, President, Chief Scientist & CTO of Sable Systems International and Dr. Andreas Mölich, Managing Director of Sable Systems Europe GmbH.  Dr. Lighton is also the author of the book “Measuring Metabolic Rates: A Manual for Scientists”.

The course covered both theory and practice of room calorimetry, including specifics of gas analyzers used in indirect calorimetry, system validation and data analysis.  Making use of the University of Hohenheim’s expertly-designed new room calorimetry facility, metabolic data from attendees were collected and analyzed during the course.  The new facility is under the direction of Anja Bosy-Westphal, MD, PhD, professor of nutrition and dietetics.
