The OROBOROS Oxygraph-2k
- to explore the Power of Life
for high-resolution respirometry (HRR)
O2k - the world's most Powerful, Popular and Prestigeous respirometer for cellular and mitochondrial research:
Isolated mitochondria Intact cells Permeabilized cells Permeabilized tissues Tissue homogenates  Small tissue biopsies
O2k with simultaneous fluorometry: HRR and ROS production, mt-membrane potential, ATP-production, Ca2+

O2k for OXPHOS analysis with substrate-uncoupler-inhibitor titration (SUIT) protocols to study multiple respiratory states in a single experimental incubation: no other platform is suited for application of SUIT protocols.
'OXPHOS analysis extends simple bioenergetics to the level of mitochondrial physiology' (Gnaiger 2012).
O2k - flexibility within experiments, on-line display of concentration and flux, automatic software controlled titrations.
