Training

Instruments within the Diabetes Center Metabolic Core include a set of 12 metabolic chambers (Oxymax Lab Animal Monitoring System or CLAMS), a DEXA and an EchoMRI device. DEXA and EchoMRI are available for use, after training by any UCSF and, pending availability, non-UCSF laboratories.

EchoMRI

  • Meet with Christophe Paillart for training on the machine (less than 30 minutes).
  • Contact LARC to request access to the animal facility at PSB (Parnassus Service Building)
  • Contact the manager of the PSB to grant you access to the key lock box (so you can get the key for the room PS-644).

DEXA:

  • Meet with Christophe Paillart, for traininig on the machine (about an 1h). You are required to have received LARC training on the Isoflurane kit
  • Contact LARC to request access to the animal facility at PSB (Parnassus Service Building)
  • Contact the manager of the PSB to grant you access to the key lock box (so you can get the key for the room PS-644).

Seahorse XFe24

  • We regularly organize on-site group trainings with Seahorse Bioscience Field Application Scientist.  Christophe Paillart will also accompany the user for his/her first run.

CLAMS

The CLAMS is not operated by Core users. During the four-day run, the manager will assist any user with special requests, such as injections of drugs, oral gavage, sample collection, etc.

A direct assistance fee applies to all services.  All services are charged by 30-minute blocks.
