Biolog MitoPlate S-1 and MitoPlate I-1

Biolog has launched MitoPlate S-1 and MitoPlate I-1, research tools for conducting a comprehensive scan of mitochondrial function. Both products are pre-configured 96-well plates. MitoPlate S-1 measures metabolism of 31 substrates, most of which are metabolized via the mitochondria. MitoPlate I-1 measures sensitivity of the mitochondria to 22 diverse mitochondrial inhibitors. Rate of energy production measurements are made and analyzed using Biolog's OmniLog instrument and companion software. MitoPlates can also be read using any microplate reader that offers kinetic reading capability.
