UCLA Mitochondria and Metabolism Core

The Mitochondria and Metabolism Core at UCLA provides the scientific community with the necessary technical and conceptual resources for studying mitochondrial function. We provide access to Seahorse XF96 Extracellular Flux Analyzers and an Operetta High Content Imager, which users can schedule after training. Additionally, The Mitochondria Core provides a number of full service options for the design, performance, analysis and interpretation of fundamental mitochondrial assays.
