Determine Oxygen Consumption Of Small Animals
Use this simple, harmless device to determine oxygen consumption of small animals such as mice or gerbils. You can compare the metabolic rates between different species, sexes, or sizes, as well as study the effects of variable environmental conditions such as light cycles and temperatures. The clear plastic chamber holds a cylindrical cage above soda lime, available separately, placed in the base. A rubber stopper at one end holds the buret that contains an indicator solution. Movement of the solution replicates oxygen consumption of the animal. It includes an instruction manual.
