Mice body mass composition analysis is performed without trauma to assess mouse body fat, muscle, and bone mineral. Ability to monitor the relationship between tumor progression and body composition in tumor-bearing mice. Mice metabolic rate monitoring refers to real-time monitoring of basal metabolic rate, gas metabolism, heat regulation, and food thermic effect of tumor-bearing mice.
Glucose tolerance test is used to evaluate the change in blood glucose level in mice over time after glucose administration. There are many options for glucose administration, such as oral administration, intragastric administration, intraperitoneal injection, or intravenous injection. The choice of the mode of administration of glucose depends on several variables.
The glucose tolerance test we use is either 1.5 g/kg or 2 g/kg. In insulin resistance experiments, the amount of insulin we used was determined according to the age and sex of the mice, generally 0.5-1.2 U/kg. Both glucose and insulin we used were diluted to appropriate concentrations with normal saline.
CD BioGlyco provides mice mass composition analysis, metabolic function real-time monitoring, glucose tolerance test, and insulin tolerance test services.
