Please help us to improve the O2k-Workshops by taking a few minutes to answer the following questions: IOC163 Feedback
  • Perfect hands on training with proper explanation of the experiment. Discussion and troubleshooting of the experiment. - Kumar Premranjan
  • What I liked most was the atmosphere of familiarity and serenity and the high level of professionalism and knowledge of the tutors. Even though I was already using the O2kOroboros to assess thr cellular respiration, I realized that there are several steps in which I can improve the performance of my instrument. The topic that I was very interested in and that satisfied me but I would like to address again (if possible) in a future workshop is the use of fluorescent probes with the resulting data analysis. Fantastic experience! - Cerioni Liana
  • It was a good balance of theory and hands-on. I liked how each of our groups got to analyze our own data and dicuss it with the entire group and receive feedback. - Viswanathan Dhivya
  • The workshop delivered way beyond my expectations, in terms of the balance between lectures & hands-on sessions, the quality of tutoring, and an environment with only collaboration and no competition (and SO MUCH fun!), and I must commend the organizing team for that. - Nizami Hina Lateef
  • The workshop in Schroecken was fantastic - you have a great team. - Ricks Rachel

General information

This training course on the Oroboros O2k and NextGen-O2k provides an introduction to DatLab 8 and applications of the TIP2k. Demos and hands-on experiments illustrate the principle and show the unique advantages and limitations of simultaneous monitoring of oxygen concentration and mitochondrial respiration. The O2k-Fluo Smart-Module is presented with hands-on calibrations for Amplex UltraRed (hydrogen peroxide, ROS) or safranin (mitochondrial membrane potential). Many optimized SUIT protocols are available as DL-Protocols. The SUITbrowser helps you find the best SUIT protocol for your specific research questions. Furthermore, this workshop covers interpretation as well as calibration and instrumental service.


We would like to advise you to make sure to book flights that will allow you to arrive in Bregenz in time for the scheduled pickup.
In the case of delay, please call Oroboros Instruments Mobile: +43 677 64 79 29 17 or Oroboros Office: +43 512 566 796 (until 5:30 pm) as soon as you know you will arrive late.
If you miss the scheduled transportation you will have to take a cab (Suggestion: Ritter Transport. Phone number: +43 664 34 11 540) or the public transportation to Schroecken. If you decide to take the public transportation, you will have to take the bus via Bregenz- Egg – Bezau – Schoppernau – Schröcken Dorf. You can book the ticket here: vmbol or here: oebb. Please note that the last bus leaves Bregenz at 17:33, after that the only option to get to Schroecken is by cab.
Please be aware that you will be responsible for paying for any additional transportation costs (about € 120 for a cab/ travel time 1 h; about € 11 for the public transportation / travel time 1.5 h - 2 h). Please check with your airline to see if there are any reimbursements available in the event that you miss the organized transport and have to arrange and pay for a cab or public transportation.
