This work utilized Core Services supported by grant DK089503 of NIH to the University of Michigan.
Co-Directors: Jeffrey Horowitz, PhD, School of Kinesiology and Karen Peterson, DSc, School of Public Health
The Human Phenotyping Core overall objective is to enhance and expand the research capabilities of MMOC/NORC investigators performing clinical and translational studies related to nutritional interventions, obesity, or obesity-related disorders in humans. Working with the Nutrition Assessment Laboratory and the Physical Activity Lab, Core personnel offer assistance in the design, execution and interpretation of procedures for metabolism-related clinical and biobehavioral phenotyping as well as nutrition evaluation and intervention.
Services provided by the Human Phenotyping Core include:
|Hourly consulting rate||$31.12 per hour|
|Hyperinsulinemic/Euglycemic Clamp||$324.58 per test|
|Clamp with Tracer||$480.13 per test|
|Intravenous Glucose Tolerance Test (IVGTT)||$100.00 per test|
|Intravenous Glucose Tolerance Test (IVGTT)
includes glucose and insulin analysis, and minimal model assessment of insulin sensitivity
|$280.56 per test|
|Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)||$60.28 per test|
|Meal Tolerance Test (MTT)||$60.28 per test|
|Substrate Kinetics (stable-isotope tracer studies)||$311.11 per test
additional metabolite analysis: $90.28 per test
|Skeletal Muscle Biopsies||$163.04 per biopsy|
|Adipose Tissue Biopsies||$163.04 per biopsy|
|Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue Metabolism (microdialysis)||$343.59 per test|
|General Phenotyping Service||$31.21 per hour|
|BodPod||$60.42 per test|
|Resting Metabolic Rate||$78.13 per test|
|DEXA Scans||$102.00 per scan|
Note that cost for some services include charges for time/effort of experienced, training, and/or licensed personnel. In instances where staff from the core users' research team assist or appropriately fill the role of Core staff to provide the service, the charges will be adjusted accordingly.
