Metabolism products

Studying animal metabolism is complex. Both, caloric intake and energy expenditure are strongly influenced by various internal (e.g., locomotor activity level, hormone levels) and external (e.g., ambient temperature) factors. Thus, many variables must be taken into consideration or be tightly controlled in order to obtain meaningful data.

TSE Systems offers sophisticated instruments for various aspects of metabolic research in small laboratory animals taking all variables into account. The indirect gas calorimetry system (CaloSys) combines the best possibilities for PULL and PUSH, continuous and multiplexed respirometry. Environmental conditions are regulated and perfectly controlled by specially designed TSE climate chambers.

Stay flexible!

TSE’s calorimetry module works with a home-cage, treadmill, running wheel for exercise calorimetry, or a special cage construct designed for urine and feces quantification (Metabolic PhenoCage). Indirect calorimetry (CaloSys) can be combined with modules that monitor and restrict food and liquid intake, measure the animal’s body weight, and track locomotor activity. Top it all off with implantable Stellar Telemetry and/or a fully automated operant wall to combine metabolic experiments with behavioral and physiological measurements. All perfectly synchronized, within a single setup.
