Introduction

Mi2Cure is leading in biochemical analyses of mitochondrial functionality in cells and tissues of patients. This expertise is built upon a long history in the Erasmus MC (>40 years), initially initiated at the Dept. of Biochemistry, currently embedded in the Dept. of Clinical Genetics.

Description research

Besides measurements of overall mitochondrial function, individual mitochondrial Complex activities are measured, both in muscle cells and fibroblasts. All tests are done according to the ISO 15819 norm of the Dutch accreditation body.
