The power of XF technology provides real-time kinetics that unlocks essential cellular bioenergetic data
Understanding how bioenergetics regulates cellular function is a question scientists are challenged with every day. XF technology and stress test kits make cellular bioenergetic studies simple, efficient and user-friendly. Introduced in 2006 XF technology combines a sophisticated electro-optical instrument with "smart plastic" cartridges to enable the real-time measurement of cellular bioenergetics in a non-invasive, multi-well microplate format.
The first in vitro metabolic measurement, XF technology non-invasively profiles the metabolic activity of cells in minutes, offering scientists a physiologic cell-based assay for the determination of basal oxygen consumption, glycolysis rates, ATP production, and respiratory capacity in a single experiment to assess mitochondrial dysfunction.
Scientists Worldwide are using XF technology for a faster, better, and more accurate measurement of real-time cellular bioenergetics.
By measuring the two major energy producing pathways of the cell simultaneously, mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis, scientists get the most physiologically relevant bioenergetic assay available, resulting in a better overall view of metabolism. XF technology also measures fatty acid oxidation, and metabolism of glucose and amino acids for kinetic metabolic information.
No labels, radioactivity, dyes, trypsin, or permeabilization!
Adherent cells, primary cells, suspension cells, and isolated mitochondria can be analyzed easily. XF technology allows you to measure mitochondrial function, and dysfunction, in living cells with less set up and clean up than Clark electrode methods.
Measure mitochondrial respiration and glycolytic function in cells with XF Stress Test Kits.
By combining quality controlled reagents with real-time, label-free measurements provided by XF technology, the XF Cell Mito Stress Test Kit provides a complete mitochondrial stress profile; and the XF Glycolysis Stress Test Kit reveals a complete glycolytic profile of the cell; while dedicated software algorithms automatically calculate the key metrics, simplifying data analysis and interpretation.
