Pick your Power - Cell Analysis Product Selection Guide
All Agilent cell metabolism assays measure cell metabolism by looking at oxygen consumption rate (OCR) and extracellular acidification rate (ECAR) – it’s the technology that differs. So it’s a matter of understanding which assay best suits your biological questions, workflow, and throughput goals.
Agilent Seahorse XF analyzers use solid-state sensors to simultaneously measure OCR and ECAR in every well, via the creation of a transient microchamber.
MitoXpress and pH-Xtra assays use soluble, chemically inert, cell impermeable, fluorophores to measure OCR and ECAR in real time, using plate-reader based assays.
Use this handy guide of the workflow differentiators to best understand which assay suits your needs.
