CaloBox

CaloBox - System for indirect calorimetry

A new system for indirect calorimetry in mice and other small animals.

Simply connect the CaloBox with an animal cuvette, turn on air flow, and press „Start“ for measurement.

Applications in research and teaching: animal metabolism, nutrition, heat regulation, thermoregulation.

Developed by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Heldmaier, Philipps-Universität Marburg.
