The future of metabolic phenotyping

This blog post shows a graphic summary of data integrity in parallel, continuous (Promethion-C) vs. multiplexed (all others) metabolic phenotyping systems. Click on the title to read it. Complete with a compelling graphic!

Continuous Metabolic Phenotyping - How Continuous is "Continuous"?

A continuous metabolic phenotyping system is required for tracking rapid changes in metabolic data. Such a metabolic phenotyping system must sample continuously from each cage in parallel. Because each cage gets its own gas analyzer system, the sampling rate can be greatly increased relative to multiplexed systems, which share a gas analyzer chain between several cages. This allows transient metabolic phenomena to be resolved. For example, responses to injections or other such treatments can be tracked with excellent temporal resolution.

How Multiplexing Distorts Metabolic Phenotyping Data

Multiplexing metabolic signals causes significant data distortion. This post explains how, and gives you access to an amazing, interactive tool for exploring the metabolic data distortions produced by this practically universally-used technique!

Data, data, data!

Sometimes (almost always, if you're a researcher) you just can't get too much data. Click above to see just a subset of the data you can get in a day (and night) from just one busy little mouse.

Welcome to the revitalized Respirometry.org!

Just a quick post to let the teeming multitudes (all three of you) know that Respirometry.org's long stasis is at an end. I'll be posting new content on a regular basis, much of it available nowhere else. I'll be blogging muchly about Promethion, a new metabolic measurement system for biomedical researchers, but also on other topics.
