Metabolism Experiment


An excellent introduction to the metabolic process. Lab Kit for 50 students.

Using unique metabolism chambers, students observe small organisms (not included) such as insects, snails, worms and germinating seeds. They draw correlations between the size of an organism, temperature of environment, and oxygen consumption. They measure the rate of oxygen consumption, and can then calculate an organisms’s respiratory rate in cubic cm of oxygen per kg per hour, measure total gas exchange in a closed environment, and determine the organism’s metabolic relationship to total gas in a closed environment. Provides valuable practice in recording and retaining experimental data.
