Abstract

The method of using absorbance in conjunction with hemoglobin (Hb) to monitor rapid changes in oxygen consumption in vitro was improved by using a non-linear calibration technique and multiwavelength spectroscopy. The O(2) dependence of Hb absorbance was effectively linearized using the current technique (R(2) = 0.990+/-0.002, n = 3), and extended the dynamic range of [O(2)] determinations by 1.6-fold over previous approaches. The association/dissociation rates of O(2) and Hb were evaluated using the current approach and were not significant on the 100-ms time domain. A method was also developed for compensating for large amplitude light scattering changes in turbid media using multiwavelength analysis. Both the nonlinear calibration curve and light scattering corrections were validated in isolated porcine heart mitochondrial preparations.
