Application Note: Assessing Microbial Proliferation and Antibiotic Resistance using the MitoXpress Xtra Oxygen Consumption Assay
20 March 2019
In this application note, it was shown how the MitoXpress Xtra Oxygen Consumption Assay facilitates simple and convenient probing of microbial oxygen consumption and can be applied to the analysis of bacteria and yeast. The metabolism and growth implications of treatments such as drug exposure, genetic manipulation or altered culture conditions can be easily accessed. The assay can detect antimicrobial activity and provides the throughput and resolution necessary for screening and generating half maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) or minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) data.
