  • Mitochondrial Oxygen Consumption Rate

Cayman’s Mitocheck® Mitochondrial OCR Assay Kit is designed to measure OCR directly in freshly isolated mitochondria. This kit combines a mitochondrial respiration buffer, substrates, and inhibitors with the phosphorescent oxygen probe MitoXpress® Xtra to accurately determine mitochondrial OCR in a high throughput manner. While there are several well-established methods that allow for the measurement of cellular OCR in cells, these methods only accurately reflect the respiration rates of the cell and may not necessarily represent specific mitochondrial function. For convenience, a mitochondrial tissue isolation procedure is outlined in this kit. However, the buffers needed to perform the isolation, which are available in Cayman’s Mitocheck® (Tissue) Mitochondrial Isolation Kit (Item No. 701010), must be purchased separately.

Needed but not supplied: Please download the kit booklet to verify if UltraPure Water (Milli-Q or equivalent) or any other components are needed for this assay.
