Maintains 16 simultaneous, individual air flows from 5 mL/min to 200 mL/min
Selects the air flows from each chamber in succession and directs that air flow to external gas analyzers
Six external voltages can be measured by a high resolution (16 bit) analog-to-digital converter
Fully programmable for all aspects of its operation and can operate under computer control or as a stand-alone instrument
Records data to a computer or to an internal SD card
Data files can be loaded directly into Sable Expedata or Microsoft Excel for further analysis
The Sable MAVEn™ system is an integrated, compact 16-channel flow generator for small insect flow-through respirometry. Each flow is pushed through a sealed container holding a subject animal. The system automatically selects the air flows from each chamber in succession, with optional baseline interleaving, and directs that air flow to external gas analyzers. Six external instruments such as O2, CO2, H2O, animal activity levels, barometric pressure, ambient temperature and light levels can be monitored. Further expansion is planned that will measure larger arthropods, fish, and amphibians, up to small lizards, snakes, mammals and birds.
Compact and cost-effective, the MAVEn packs unprecedented metabolic measurement power and versatility into a slim, easy-to-use instrument.
