Making Physiology Happen


SAMC4 MultiChamber Small Animal Metabolic Carts

The SAMC4-140TA and SAMC4-520TA systems are multichamber small animal metabolic systems suitable for recording and measuring:

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

Measurements from upto 4 chamber can be made using this system

Each system includes:

  • IX-TA-220 Recorder
  • iWire-GA1 Gas Analyzer
  • A-GA-8 Gas Switcher
  • 4 Animal Chambers ( 1.4L or 5.2L)
  • LabScribe Software with the Metabolic Calculations Module+
  • A-CAL-200 Calibration Kit
  • Luer connectors and tubing to get started.

The SAMC4-140TA  has a 1.4 Liter chamber and the SAMC4-520TA has a 5.2 Liter chamber; each comes with a tray and tubing.
