Fantastic system to measure mitochondrial metabolism
Application Area: Mitochondrial metabolism analysis
"The Mito Stress Kit is a high-quality system to measure mitochondrial metabolism in the XF Seahorse system. I have been using it for over two years with diverse cellular platforms and a wide range of pharmacological and biological agents always with excellent and reproducible data."
The Agilent Seahorse Cell Mito Stress Test kit is the widely recognized, well accepted standard assay for assessing mitochondrial function. Multiple parameters are obtained in this one assay including, basal respiration, ATP-linked respiration, maximal and reserve capacities, and non-mitochondrial respiration. The assay provides insights into the mechanism of mitochondrial dysfunction and allows users to investigate functional differences among cell types, drug candidates, and genetic or biochemical interventions.
Each kit contains the material sufficient for six full plate tests and is available in two packaging sizes. The XF kit is for use with the Agilent Seahorse XF Pro, XF96/XFe96 and XFe24 Analyzers. The XFp kit is for use with the Agilent Seahorse XF HS Mini and XFp Analyzers.
