Rapid Analysis of Neon and Carbon Monoxide in mouse Lung Diffusion Capacity
This application not describes the advantages when using Micro GC Fusion to accurately and rapidly analyze mouse lung components to generate lung diffusion models.
One of the most efficient ways to study the effect of different pathologies on human lung function is to generate models of mouse lung function using the diffusion capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (often referred to as DLCO or DFCO). Diffusion models established by conducting experiments using carbon monoxide and neon exhaled from the mouse lung are applicable to human lungs.
These models provide valuable insight into disease such as chronic idiopathic fibrosis and emphysema, and allow for the evaluation of potential interventions and treatments.
