A reduction in mitochondrial activity has been strongly linked with various neurodegenerative diseases. Moreover, several mutations have been characterized that induce age-related mitochondrial malfunction. QPS Austria provides cell culture models that address the effect of compounds on mitochondrial activity and mitochondria related cell death in vitro.
Cell lines and primary neurons can be exposed to different toxins and examined for mitochondrial activity and mitochondrial membrane depolarization.
