Researchers measure various cellular indicators of health and stress, such as oxygen consumption rate, to assess candidate drug or industrial compound toxicity. Typically, these assays have arbitrary endpoints and they destroy cell samples, while giving only a single datapoint. A convenient instrument continuously measures oxygen consumption rates of samples in multi-well plates over hours or days, providing a robust set of nuanced data.
