Summary of ScienceDome operations:
During the morning, Imane weighed the empty tubes for the feces collection. During the day, the crew members collected their feces for the biomedical team.
During the afternoon, Imane, Alba and Arnaud used the science dome for blood and saliva collection to assess stress and immunity markers as well as material preparation for the next few days. We’ve also processed blood samples after their collection. We have frozen the saliva samples and performed a measurement of AMMP-8 in saliva with the ORALyzer ® for the evaluation of oral health.
From 8pm till 8am on Tuesday 2th April, urines will be collected to assess stress levels through neurotransmitters and metabolites analysis.
