Exercise & Metabolism

From studying how different athletes perform or recover to quantifying an animal model’s resistance to metabolic fatigue, the field of exercise and metabolic physiology encompasses a broad range of study. Aurora Scientific has solutions to address these different areas of inquiry whether in murine or other animal models, or even with human samples.  Powerful software married with precise instruments for studying whole animal, whole muscle and single fiber samples make Aurora Scientific the leader in providing Exercise Physiologists with the means to understand muscle performance at the highest level.

1200A – Easy To Use System Is an Invaluable Tool for Lab

CHALLENGE

In 2013 Aurora Scientific was approached by Dr. Espen Spangenburg at the University of Maryland about our 1200A test system for working with isolated EDL and soleus muscle taken from mice.

1305A – Footplate Configuration for Rats Invaluable to the Study of Muscle Damage

CHALLENGE

In 2012, Marius Locke at the University of Toronto had been studying skeletal muscle damage and the role that heat shock proteins (HSPs) play in protecting the muscle from stress-induced damage, such as exercise.

1400A – Durable System Helps Researcher Study Thousands of Fibers

CHALLENGE

In 2004, Dr. Hans Degens was studying changes in skeletal muscle function and morphology. Dr. Degens was looking to use permeabilized fibers as his test samples as they represent a pure system for studying cross-bridge mechanics without bias and artifacts.
