The service provides access to the following equipment:

  • Mouse metabolic cages (PhenoMaster Metabolic Cages de TSE Systems and Comprehensive Lab Animal Monitoring System, CLAMS, for análisis): These cages allow the measurement of various metabolic parameters of mice, such as oxygen consumption, food and water intake, energy expenditure, body temperature and weight and activity.


  • Mouse endoscope (COLOVIEW Mainz, Karl Storz): This device enables the visualization and manipulation of the mouse colon, such as fluid injections, and video recording in color.


  • In vivo imaging systems (IVIS Lumina II and IVIS Spectrum): These systems allow the non-invasive imaging of living animals using different modalities, such as optical, fluorescence and bioluminescence.

A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain web pages.

Classification of cookies is made according to a series of categories. However, it is necessary to take into account that the same cookie can be included in more than one category.

  2. Cookies according to the period of time they remain activated

    Depending on the length of time that they remain activated in the terminal equipment, we can distinguish:

    • Session cookies: type of cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that only is kept to provide the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g. a list of products purchased).
    • Persistent cookies: type of cookies in which the data is still stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
