The MyoLab specialises in techniques that determine the functionality of muscle.

Mechanical Testing

Maximum force, specific force, power, calcium sensitivity, elastic component

Metabolic Analyses

Capacity of glycolysis, Krebs cycle, beta oxidation, high energy phosphates, oxidative stress and metabolite concentrations

Structural Analyses

Muscle fibre type, muscle fibre size, including specific structural components, such as nuclei, mitochondria, sarcoplasmic reticulum

Besides skeletal muscle, the techniques that we use can be applied to many other tissues and materials. For moreĀ information on these techniques, click on each technique to find out more about their applications.
