The "Deep Data Field System" in Metabolic Phenotyping

Data from a metabolic phenotyping system can be rigidly determined by the parameters entered at the time of the experiment (as with legacy systems), or the data can be a rich mine of information, with complete post-hoc analytical flexibility (as with Promethion). The latter approach allows extraction of experimental data, the need for which was not anticipated at the time of the study. This can save serious amounts of time and money - apart from producing better science.

Activity Metabolism Measurements Made Easy in Metabolic Phenotyping

Correlating activity and energy expenditure in "legacy" metabolic phenotyping systems is almost impossible. However, the new Promethion-C parallel, continuous metabolic phenotyping system makes it easy. We demonstrate this by extracting data on the metabolic cost of a specific activity from a Promethion-C continuous, parallel metabolic phenotyping system - data that normally requires a treadmill, a skilled human operator, extensive training, and a lot of stress for all concerned. And we conclusively prove that we can do it accurately, on multiple animals simultaneously, and without stress.
