Human Life Research on ISS Russian Segment

Biotest Experiment


Objective:

Systematic and integrated biochemical examination of the human organism state in zero-gravity conditions to study metabolism adaptation to long-duration space flight conditions.

Tasks:

    Take blood tests for:
  • Studying specific features of biochemical control of organism gomeostasis on adaptation to zero-g conditions;
  • Investigation of the function of hormonal mechanisms in a change of water-salt, lipid and protein metabolism;
  • Selection of informative biochemical indices to evaluate the cosmonauts' physical state.

Flight equipment Used:



  • Pkasma-03 centrifuge
  • Plasma-03 set of accessories
  • Minicentrifuge M1100

  • Kriogem-03 refrigerator

  • Reflotron-4 pouch
  • Reflotron-4 set of accessories
 

Support Accesories:

  • KV-03 container

Consumables:

  • Set of Plasma-03 consumables

Expected Results:

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.
