Sercon are excited to announce that sterility tested deuterated water has been added to the range of products in the Sercon Isotopes range.
Research into the relationship between energy expenditure, physical activity and body weight is of increasing importance in light of the growing epidemic of obesity and its health-related problems. The doubly labelled water method remains the leading standard for measuring average energy expenditure under free-living conditions. The accurate and reliable measurement obtained using this method is a valuable research tool. TEE (Total Energy Expenditure) of humans or animals can be measured by administering DLW to experimental subjects and following the differential loss of Deuterium and Oxygen-18 isotopes from the body. Sercon provide sterility tested water with both 18O and D labels for energy expenditure studies.
