The project MitoFit highlights the benefits of mitochondrial fitness.

MitoFit Workpackages


MitoFit-Knowledge Management Platform


Our goal is to establish an integration and analysis environment for measurements of mitochondrial respiration (O2k-technology) with external data (cell physiology, anthropometry, spiroergometry, lifestyle, genomics) in the context of fitness evaluation and clinical diagnostics. Within the scope of the MitoFit project, a Knowledge Management Platform (MitoFit-KMP) will be established. This KMP will accomplish the integration of all relevant data and provide a presentation platform for mitochondrial functional diagnostics. The MitoFit-KMP will include: a data management system for the current and planned instruments (MitoFit-DMS), and a database (MitoFit-DB) comprising proprietary and publicly available data that allow researchers to query experimental data and perform integrative analyses. Closely linked to WP1, a strategy will be developed on the transition of the DatLab software from a continuously updated and extended research tool to a component of the O2k as a medical device.
