Mitochondria and Cell Research - the Oroboros Ecosystem
Gentle Science
Scientific and humanitarian organizations join the world-wide protest against the Russian aggression-war in Ukraine. Oroboros declares solidarity with protests in Russia and outside Russia against this war.
-» We join forces with Science for Ukraine
Science for Ukraine
Oroboros Instruments offers 1-year scientific positions to help Ukraine women to pursue their scientific career and gain expertise in bioenergetics: in mitochondrial and cell respiration, photobiology. If war makes a prolonged stay necessary, we are open to extend the contract – in the spirit of Gentle Science.
The Oroboros Bioenergetics Adventurers – our international team of scientists – are enthusiastic to collaborate with colleagues from Ukraine, who require support at the time of war, with a background in cell biology – mitochondrial physiology or algal photosynthesis. If you intend to return home when science can be continued in Ukraine, we will support you with a donation of our internationally leading instrument, represented in 49 countries. The running costs are low. For the latest information, see:

Oroboros O2k-Training Centres

The Oroboros O2k-Training Centres have outstanding experience in O2k-FluoRespirometry, collaborate within the O2k-Network, and offer methodological advice to interested research groups.
Oroboros O2k-Training Centres are listed in the following countries:

O2k-Network: all countries

» O2k-Network all countries

O2k-Network: invitation

» Invitation to join the O2k-Network as a reference laboratory
  • The O2k-Network combines the expertise of Oroboros reference laboratories by sharing user-innovations to extend O2k and O2k-MultiSensor applications.
  • Exchange of methodological details of O2k-applications with other reference laboratories.
Power O2k-Respirometer

Power O2k-Respirometer: Many O2k-Network Labs have increased their high-resolution output by use of multiple O2k-units.
