Measuring cell metabolism and fuel dependency with the Agilent Seahorse XF Analyzer

Alfredo Caro Maldonado & Teresa Cardoso

Agilent Technologies


Metabolism is the key to understanding cell function. In living cells, most of the energy produced is derived from three fuel sources: glucose, glutamine, and fatty acids. Mitochondrial access to these fuels impacts a wide variety of biological processes.

Use the Agilent Seahorse XF Analyzer to:

  • Phenotype metabolically your samples.
  • Explore glycolysis and mitochondrial respiration.
  • Identify fuel dependencies to uncover cell vulnerabilities.
  • Explore how fuel preferences lead to cell fate decisions.

Come and discover how Seahorse can help you to understand the biology of your cells by analyzing metabolism in an easy and straightforward way.
