ATP is the primary energy currency of living systems. Virtually all energy requiring processes utilize the chemical energy stored in the phosphate bond of ATP. ATP is formed exclusively in the mitochondria and a variety of genetic diseases can affect ATP formation in the mitochondria. There are a number of commercially available ATP assays which detects femtomoles or less of ATP by measuring luminescence (BioVision Kit BV-K254, for example) but these kits require specialized luminescence instrumentation and utilize luciferase which can be difficult to maintain in active form.
