The assay delivers unique insights into cell phenotype and function, providing a window into the critical activities driving cell signaling, proliferation, activation, toxicity, and biosynthesis. It expands the application range for XF technology--which can detect discrete changes in cell metabolism and bioenergetics, as they happen--providing physiologically relevant metrics, and is more informative than the traditional method of simply measuring the total, static, end-point level of cellular ATP.
