How Agilent Seahorse XF Analyzers Work

How Agilent Seahorse XF Analyzers Work
Automatic measurement OCR and ECAR in real time
Seahorse XF Analyzers measure oxygen consumption rate (OCR) and extracellular acidification rate (ECAR) of live cells in a multi-well plate, interrogating key cellular functions such as mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis. XF Analyzers perform compound addition and mixing, label-free analytical detection, and automatic measurement of OCR and ECAR in real time.
OCR and ECAR rates are key indicators of mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis and these measurements provide a systems-level view of cellular metabolic function in cultured cells and ex-vivo samples. For more information on choosing the assay that is right for you, visit our XF Instrument Selection Guide.

Don't Take Our Word For It

Since its introduction in 2006, Seahorse XF technology has been used in over 2500 peer-reviewed publications. The power and utility of Seahorse XF technology allows researchers in a wide variety of application areas to better understand their cellular models and make ground-breaking discoveries about the critical role of metabolism in a wide variety of diseases.
