Metabolism refers to the chemical reactions in an organism. A distinction is made between energy metabolism and building metabolism and building and breaking down metabolism. Metabolic processes occur far from chemical equilibrium. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) serves as an energy transmitter in the cell. Enzymes catalyze metabolic reactions. Energy metabolism can be measured by direct and indirect calorimetry.
The chip is used to optimize energy metabolism and support metabolic processes in the organism.
