The Oroboros O2k is the modular system for high-resolution respirometry (HRR) for mitochondria and cell research. HRR is the basis for combined measurement of respiration and ROS production, mitochondrial membrane potential, ATP production, Ca2+, or pH.
With the Oroboros O2k, small amounts of biological samples can be used for bioenergetic and OXPHOS analysis, ranging from isolated mitochondria, permeabilized tissues and permeabilized cells to living cells and tissues slices.
Experimental data are displayed not only as oxygen concentration over time but also as real-time transformation of these data, allowing the experimenter to follow respiration (oxygen consumption, oxygen flux) of biological and biochemical samples while the experiment is still running.
The modular O2k-concept is supported by DatLab 7 with high flexibility for extension by add-on O2k-Modules or economical first steps with O2k-Packages.
The high-resolution O2k technology is internationally tested and trusted with emphasis on quality and scientific output of research in mitochondrial physiology and pathology.
