What are animal respirometry systems? There are 2 basic types of Animal Respirometry Systems: Open Flow and Stop Flow. In Open Flow respirometry ambient air is constantly flowing through animal chamber and being measured. In Stop Flow the expired air is allowed to accumulate in animal chamber for a period of time before measurements are taken. In respirometry, there is a trade-off between feCO2 magnitude, Chamber Size and Flow rate through the chamber.
The AEI Technologies MOXAR System has several unique advantages:
– AEI Gas Analyzers are unmatched accuracy, stability & repeatability
– Accuracy of the Flow rate through the chamber is the best
– Supported by over 40 years of respiratory gas experience
