Environmental Control & Monitoring
The environmental control chambers were specifically designed for indirect calorimetry experiments. The environment becomes part of the experiment with temperature, light and humidity under tight software control. Temperature challenge and circadian effects can now be studied in detail.
Visual inspection of the experimental animals is possible through windows equipped with a filter foil blocking all external light from the visible spectrum in mice. Red light illuminates the chamber during programmed dark phases. The chambers also reduces noise to a minimum compared to open housing conditions.
Climate chambers are the ideal solution to ensure highest data integrity in situations where precise changes of the environment are necessary or in situations where several experimenters enter/use the room.
