Melbourne Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Platform

Overview of Services

The MMMPP manages and maintains a range of mouse metabolism specialist equipment. Our aim is to expand the scope and quality of metabolic research equipment and techniques that are available to researchers. We provide training, assist with experimental design and data analysis, and monitor the booking and service calendars for our equipment. We offer training and access to a TD-NMR minispec to analyse body composition, a Promethion Metabolic System for simultaneous recording of activity, food intake and energy expenditure, and to a variety of other comprehensive functional and physiological investigative equipment.



The MMMPP is located within the Department of Anatomy and Physiology in the School of Biomedical Sciences. The platform is governed by the MMMPP Steering Committee and managed by the MMMPP Coordinator.
