MC-520Peak/MC-140Peak Small Animal Metabolic Carts

The MC-140Peak and MC-520Peak systems are small animal metabolic chambers suitable for recording and measuring:

  • Respiratory Quotient (RQ)
  • RER
  • O2 consumed and CO2 expired.

Each system includes:

  • IX-Peak  Recorder and Gas Analyzer
  • LabScribe Software with the Metabolic Calculations Module
  • A-CAL-200 Calibration Kit

The MC-140Peak has a 1.4 Liter chamber and the MC-520Peak has a 5.2 Liter chamber; each come with a tray and tubing.
