Quark RMR - Stationary Indirect Calorimetry
Quark RMR ICU
The Quark RMR is a state-of-the-art metabolic cart for expired gas exchange analysis (VO2, VCO2) either during resting or (optionally) exercise protocols. Its high quality components, simplified calibration protocols, easy maintenance and huge configuration options make the Quark RMR the most suitable metabolic cart for applied research in human physiology. Quark RMR accuracy and reliability have been validated against Gold Standard methods either with spontaneously breathing subjects and with mechanically assisted patients.
Latest technology in gas analyzers. Quark RMR has been equipped with fast-response stable and durable paramagnetic technology for O2 sensor, and rapid infrared for the CO2. Both analyzers can assure long periods of accurate measurements without the need of periodical replacement.
Breath by Breath & Mixing Chamber. Both sampling technologies are available either during exercise or at rest conditions.
Quick and user-friendly calibration procedures. Software guided calibrations guarantee accurate measurements either of flow/volume (using the 3-liter calibration syringe) and gas concentration.
Modular design architecture. Modularity allows to configure Quark RMR according to the different metabolic testing requirements. This cost-effective solution gives the opportunity to scale at any time to a more complex configuration.
Low running costs and easy maintenance. The design architecture has been conceived to reduce ordinary maintenance and to easily and rapidly solve any technical problem.
Accuracy guaranteed with ethanol burning kit. It can be used to verify the Quark RMR accuracy of Respiratory Quotient measurement.
Powered by OMNIA software. Innovative user interface, touch screen ready, easy-to-use and self-explanatory.
Independently validated technology. Quark RMR/CPET is the only metabolic cart in the market that has been validated both on different gas exchange methods (Breath by Breath and Mixing Chamber), and on the whole human physiological range (from resting to a wide range of exercise intensities).
