“Making room calorimeter research more attainable”

Room calorimeters are an invaluable, powerful tool in metabolic research studies. However, cost and space constraints limit many institutes from performing their desired research. To change this, MI has combined its 35 years of room calorimeter experience with its state of the art metabolic cart, the Omnical system, to develop the world’s first basic room calorimeter: a complete system, installed in a matter of hours and immediately ready to perform research.

“We guarantee the highest total system accuracy and precision available on the market today”

Maastricht Instruments guarantees the accuracy of VO2 and VCO2 levels not just at the time of installation. Users of the system can validate the system accuracy with ease using the validation equipment provided.  Users can have increased confidence in research results using the highly precise measurement instruments achieving the highest accuracy possible.

“A flexible system that can be easily adapted to a wide range of research”

The room calorimeter basic can be used for a wide variety of research, ranging from nutritional studies to sports recovery and can even accommodate subjects in hospital beds who may not be suited for traditional techniques with masks or hoods. Each system is customized to meet specific requirements and easy adaptated to different studies. When not in use, the room can be easily be disassembled and stored, while the Omnical system can be used as a high end, top of the line hood or sports metabolic cart.
