Basic Procedures


Assay Protocols

Protocols are step-by-step procedural methods developed by Seahorse scientists for researchers studying cell metabolism to ensure the successful design, implementation and replication of XF assays.


Application Notes

Application Notes are instructions developed by Seahorse scientists that modify a standard XF assay for additional applications, including alternative sample types, assay conditions, or analysis methods. These protocols offer instructions on how to prepare and run modified XF assays.


Assay Tech Hints

Assay Tech Hints are general guidelines developed by Seahorse scientists that are a companion to Seahorse XF assay protocols. These guidelines will help to ensure the successful design, implementation and replication of XF assays.
