Cell Metabolism (Seahorse)

Mitochondrial function and glycolysis play critical roles in a variety of cellular processes, including cellular activation, proliferation, differentiation, cell death, and disease progression. Agilent Seahorse patented XF technology enables the measurement of several metabolic parameters and functions using live cells, in real time, enabling researchers to assess energy expenditure, substrate utilization, mitochondrial function, and general cellular homeostasis. XF technology is used with many different cell lines, including primary cells, adherent and suspension cell lines, isolated mitochondria, and islets, 3D cultures, Zebrafish embryos, C. elegans, D. melanogaster, yeast, and other biological materials. There are over 2500 publications that demonstrate the application of Agilent Seahorse XF technology in research areas such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, metabolic disorders, immunology, cardiovascular, neurobiology,  virology, aging, and more.
