Small Animal Metabolism Apparatus


tool2 An economical student experiment apparatus for determining the oxygen consumption of small animals (weighing less than 150g). A fun, educational experience and an effective demonstration of basal metabolism.
Other suggested activities include the comparison of metabolic rates between animals of different species, sex or size; and comparisons of animals under varying environmental conditions, such as light/dark, cool/warm and resting/working.Contains all the equipment necessary to conduct the experiments. Animal and CO2 absorbant not included.Catalog #7122-410*

Student Wet Spirometer, 9-liter

sci_photo Now there’s an academic-quality wet spirometer that combines reliability and accuracy with an increased volume to accommodate students with larger lung capacities.

Introduce students to the basics of respiratory physiology through experiments in which they are the subjects. Measure Tidal Volumes (TV), Inspiratory Capacity (IC), Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV), Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV), and Vital Capacity (VC).
