Next Generation Instrument for In-Depth Analysis of Mitochondrial Fitness

Project description

Sensing metabolic markers in energetic organelles

All cells require energy to carry out their many functions. Boosting the efficiency of metabolic pathways can enhance the production of molecules for biotechnology applications in medicine or industry. Given its wide-reaching importance, bioenergetics has emerged as a field of its own, and mitochondria and chloroplasts play a starring role. NextGen-O2k is developing a namesake multi-sensor platform that will boost the reproducibility and resolution of analyses related to molecular metabolic markers in mitochondria and chloroplasts. The tool promises to streamline the time and money required to assess the functional fitness of these organelles, with important implications for human health and industrial biotechnology.
