Sercon are proud to be supporting the IAEA doubly labelled water database

The doubly labelled water (DLW) method is an isotope-based technique that quantifies total energy expenditure (TEE) over periods of 1–3 weeks from the differential elimination of stable isotopes of oxygen and hydrogen. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) DLW database has been established to pool DLW data across multiple studies. It was initiated by the main […]

High sensitivity source now available in the Integra2

High sensitivity source now available in the Integra2 The Sercon high sensitivity source is now available as an optional upgrade in the Integra2. Giving improved sensitivity and a larger dynamic range, the high sensitivity source allows researchers to measure small samples with no loss of precision. Sensitivity                  […]

Sterility tested deuterated water – now available from Sercon

Sercon are excited to announce that sterility tested deuterated water has been added to the range of products in the Sercon Isotopes range.   Research into the relationship between energy expenditure, physical activity and body weight is of increasing importance in light of the growing epidemic of obesity and its health-related problems. The doubly labelled […]

Season’s greetings from Sercon HQ!

Season’s greetings from everyone at Sercon to all of our customers, collaborators, suppliers and everyone in the worldwide isotope community. Thanks for a great year.

The ABCA2’s role in early detection of liver damage

One of the scientists using Sercon’s ABCA2 at Southampton General Hospital is hopeful the technique he has developed will help in the prevention of liver damage and type 2 diabetes in a world where obesity is causing ever more health problems. Dr Paul Afolabi, who works in the hospital’s medical research department, has been using […]
