Measurement of respiratory parameters
PhenoMaster can also be used to measure respiratory parameters under different environmental conditions. For example, the simulation of high altitudes where the partial oxygen pressure is lower. Since oxygen is a key component in aerobic respiration, metabolic flexibility is different under hypoxic conditions. The Phenomaster allows for several solutions to use synthetic air with customized cages and/or isolators to mimic these special environments. Please contact sales to discuss specific applications.
