XF Analyzers - Seahorse Bioscience

The XF Extracellular Flux Analyzers are fully-integrated instruments that simultaneously measure the two major energy yielding pathways - aerobic respiration and glycolysis - in a convenient, microplate format. This fast and sensitive measurement of cellular bioenergetics is label free, enabling time-resolved analysis and the reuse of the cells.


XF Prep Station - Seahorse Bioscience

Incubator, media warmer, cell washer and media exchanger in a compact footprint that can be located adjacent to your XF Analyzer and run by your existing XF applications software. XF users have had to manually remove and rinse cells of culture medium with a multi-channel pipettor prior to adding assay medium and pre-incubating in a non-CO2.


How XF Analyzers Work - Seahorse Bioscience

Cellular oxygen consumption and proton excretion causes rapid, easily measurable changes to the concentrations of dissolved oxygen and free protons in this "transient microchamber" which are measured every few seconds by solid state sensor probes residing 200 microns above the cell monolayer. The vision was to develop a non-invasive instrument that would enable scientists to measure cellular bioenergetics in a microplate formatâ??quickly.
