Applications and samples
The O2k is used in basic and applied research to study the respiration of tissues, cells and mitochondria. Fairly simple to highly complex, comprehensive experimental protocols can be applied to assess either basal mitochondrial characteristics or obtain diagnostic insight into respiratory pathways. Topically, studies using the O2k range from comparative physiological investigations addressing evolutionary and environmental aspects of mitochondrial metabolism over the energetics related to exercise physiology, nutrition and life style, to aspects of clinical interest such as the impact of metabolic diseases, cancer, or pharmacological interventions.
- The most prominent applications of the O2k
- Studies on exercise physiology;nutrition;life style
- Diagnosis of acquired and genetic mitochondrial diseases
- Diagnosis of myopathies and neuromuscular pathologies
- Studies on cell function and cell death - apoptosis and necrosis
- Measurement of oxidative stress
- Studies on ischemia-reperfusion injury
- Studies on aging and senescence
- Pharmacological tests
- Studies on Diabetes 2
- For more applications, browse through the 3363 O2k-Publications in the MiPMap.
Is the O2k easy to use in standard applications of mitochondrial respiration?
Most 'oxygraphs' are designed for analyzing isolated mitochondria. Which types of samples can be analyzed with the O2k?
Can the O2k be applied for the measurement of oxygen consumption in delicate mammalian cells, when limited numbers of cells are available?
Can the O2k be applied for measuring human biopsies?
Can the O2k be applied to measure tissue oxygen concentration?
Can the O2k be applied for measurement of oxygen consumption in adherent cells?
How many parameters can be measured simultaneously?
Delivery content, warranty and support
Does the purchase include installation, setup and training?
- Installation and setup
On-site installation and setup is not included in the purchase of an Oroboros O2k. Setup and installation are usually performed by the customers themselves with the help of our detailed and user-friendly O2k-Manual which is sent out with the O2k. In addition, the manual can also be easily down-loaded form our website (O2k-Manual). There is also a section for technical service. Our technical specialists, based here in Innsbruck, can also assist in helping to locate and solve any technical problems, should these arise. Based on our experience and feedback received from customers all over the world, we are confident that you will easily master the set-up and installation.
Is it possible to extend the warranty period?
Yes, it is possible to extend the warranty period by a total of three years. For more details, please contact our office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you offer the option to lease or rent your instruments?
It is possible to lease the O2k over the course of three years, after which the instrument passes over into your ownership. Furthermore, you can rent an instrument for a short period (e.g. several weeks or months) if you need to improve your throughput for a specific study or experiment. Contact our office for further details: email@example.com
