Core equipment

The equipment serving the investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School affiliated scientists has been acquired and expanded over the past two decades. Initial equipment included a DEXA scanner, a CLAMS indirect calorimeter, and an EchoMRI for body composition analysis. In 2014 we updated our CLAMS for a unit with environmental controls of light and temperature. Our facilities were updated and re-launched as an institutional Energy Balance Core in 2019 to continue the tradition of excellence in metabolic research. This included a bomb calorimeter and a thermal imaging camera. In 2020 we obtained a Promethion indirect calorimeter and DSI’s continuous glucose monitoring system. In 2021 we obtained an isotopic analyzer for non-radioactive substrate oxidation measurement.
