A continuously monitored recirculating perfusion system for measuring intestinal absorption


A system was developed for the continuous and simultaneous measurement of water and nutrient (or electrolyte) absorption from the intestine. A recirculating loop (with a reservoir) was kept moving by means of two peristaltic pumps. Water was quantitated by means of a chromogenic nonabsorbed marker and a spectrophotometer. The nutrient (or electrolyte) was… (More)
