NextGen-O2k Redox

The experimental system for redox biology: enabling simultaneous monitoring of oxygen consumption together with coenzyme Q redox state or NAD(P)H redox state.

Product ID: 10102-03

The NextGen-O2k Redox enables the following O2k-Applications:

  • oxygen consumption
  • Q-redox state
  • NAD(P)H-redox state

The NextGen-O2k Redox also supports all add-on O2k-Modules: O2k-PB-Module, O2k-Fluo Smart-Module, O2k-TPP+ ISE-Module, O2k-pH ISE-Module, O2k-NO Amp-Module.

This package is available as a Power Package to increase throughput. Certain auxiliary tools and services are not included in Power Packages, more details:

For NextGen-O2k XA and higher, please use DatLab 8 to ensure proper operation and data acquisition for all O2k-Modules.


Award-winning innovation


Additional information


Respiration chambers with minimum oxygen diffusion
• High-resolution of oxygen flux: ±1 pmol O₂ ∙s⁻¹∙mL⁻¹ in normoxia to anoxia
• High-resolution of oxygen concentration: 5 nM
• Long-term stability and linearity of the polarographic oxygen sensor (OroboPOS)
• Barometric pressure transducer for accurate air calibration at any altitude

SUIT protocols

Standardized substrate-uncoupler-inhibitor-titration DL-Protocols
• Real-time monitoring of respiratory rates and states
• Multiple titrations within a single assay for in-depth analysis of mitochondrial fitness


Additional parameters recorded real-time in combination with oxygen in the same chamber
• Automatic and documented calibration routines, instrumental background tests, and mitochondrial assays supported by DL-Protocols


4 to 47 °C; stability ±0.002 °C


Peltier temperature control


Material: Duran glass
Volume: 2 mL or 0.5 mL

Specialized DatLab Software

Installed on integrated computer for protocol design, control and data analysis

Max. power input

330 W

Current at 100-120 V

max. 3.0 A

Current at 220-240 V

max. 1.5 A

Power consumption

During standard operation with screen (when block temperature is stable at 37 °C and ambient temperature of 22 °C) approx. 45-50 W

Lab space required

The O2k requires a minimum of lab space (0.5 m bench space), with sufficient space for the ISS, Titration Set and handling.
For maximum signal stability and optimal temperature control, the O2k should be placed in a position in which it is not exposed to direct sunlight and sudden changes of room temperature. Keep the space on the table below the O2k bottom clear to prevent any interference of ventilation beneath the O2k-Main Unit.
