The Seahorse Bioscience XF Analyser is able to test small tissue samples, cells, or mitochondria. It can test up to 24 samples at a time, meaning results are confirmed at a much faster rate than previous methods. The Seahorse measures metabolic efficiency by measuring oxygen consumption and either acid or carbon dioxide consumption by cells.

These two machines were both partially funded by the Mito Foundation in April 2013.
