Lab spaces and equipment

Four laboratories 

Marian University is equipped with a brand-new, 3,000-square-foot laboratory space in which all exercise physiology students can use the following equipment: 

  • A 1,000-square-foot movement analysis laboratory with high-speed cameras, accelerometers, and analysis software
  • A Hologic Horizon A DXA scanner
  • A Cosmed metabolic cart with treadmill, 12 lead ECG, breath-by-breath metabolic analysis, and three Monark cycle ergometers
  • A blood clinical panel analyzer
  • Indirect cardiac output analyzer
  • Heart rate monitors
  • Portable lactate analyzers
  • Four computers for off-instrument data analysis

Other facilities on campus which are used to support this work include the existing biomedical research laboratories, the analytical chemistry laboratories, and an off-campus shared laboratory space that is part of the 16-Tech collaboration with Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, the Indiana University School of Medicine, and the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Tools of the trade

You will have access to our robust array of laboratory equipment, including:

  • Six-camera motion analysis system for analyzing human movements
  • Hologic Horizon A DEXA Scanner for accurate measurements of bone density and body composition
  • COSMED Metabolic cart with a full complement of cardiorespiratory endurance testing equipment (with treadmill, cycle ergometer, and 12-lead ECG) for the assessment of cardiorespiratory fitness and performance
  • A Physio Flow device for the measurement of cardiac output
  • KOKO computer-based spirometer for the testing and assessment of respiratory function
  • A variety of bench-top and handle-held analyzers for the assessment of things such as cholesterol, lactate, and clinical chemistry
  • Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer with Laptop, chip priming station, and vortexer for microfluidic analysis of DNA, RNA, or protein
  • Zeiss Confocal for super-resolution microscopy
  • Operetta CLS High Content Analysis System for phenotypic characterization of complex cellular models
  • Flexcell Tension System to apply cyclic or static strain to cultured cells, mimicking stress and exercise in vitro
