Systematic and integrated biochemical examination of the human organism state in zero-gravity conditions to study metabolism adaptation to long-duration space flight conditions.
Information PendingEarth Applications
KV-03 container, Set of Plasma-03 consumables, Reflotron-4 pouch, Reflotron-4 set of accessories, Plasma-03 centrifuge, Plasma-03 set of accessories, Minicentrifuge M1100.Operational Protocols
Taking blood samples for a study of biochemical regulation of body homeostasis during adaptation to weightless environment; a study of the role of hormonal mechanisms in the variations in the water-salt, lipid, and protein exchange; and for the selection of informative biochemical indicators to evaluate cosmonaut's health.
The received information on the metabolism state makes possible assessment of the cosmonauts' physical state throughout long-duration space flights and will be used as the basis for development and improvement of diagnostic and prophylaxis tools.
