-20ºC and -80ºC. The lab also offers a YSI glucose analyzer for rapid bedside

The Bionutrition Core maintains research equipment and the metabolic kitchen near the Schubert Research Clinic. The metabolic kitchen is available for careful preparation of food for ongoing feeding studies and limited preparation and measurement of study specific foods and small meals for outpatient visits.
The Body Composition Core is located in the Schubert Research Clinic, and provides instrumentation for imaging techniques. We have two dual beam X-ray densitometers and a peripheral quantitative computerized tomography densitometer (pQCT) system. We also perform other techniques for body composition assessment, including bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), skinfold thicknesses, and circumference measurements.
