Measuring Mitochondrial Membrane Potential using the FLUOstar Omega Microplate Reader


Measurement of the mitochondrial membrane potential is useful in a variety of research areas. Mitochondrial membrane potential is usually measured using non-invasive cationic dyes. These dyes are sequestered into the mitochondrial matrix in amounts directly proportional to the membrane potential. BMG LABTECH’s FLUOstar Omega was used in an hts assay measuring mitochondrial membrane potential in human cells. The results presented here were gained using primary human fibroblast cells from controls.
