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.
