Intermediate Metabolism Imaging Services

Intermediate Metabolism Imaging Services

Metabolism includes a set of chemical reactions that occur in organisms. These reactions enable organisms to reproduce, develop, maintain their structure and respond to the environment. Intermediate metabolism describes all reactions related to the storage and production of metabolic energy required for the biosynthesis of low molecular weight compounds and energy storage compounds. In the intermediate metabolic pathway, the structure of each enzyme plays an important role in determining the specific properties of each reaction. Imaging analysis of intermediate metabolic process to study its metabolic mechanism is very important to maintain the normal operation of biological activities.

Intermediary Metabolism Imaging Analysis

Intermediate metabolism plays an important role in many physiological and pathological processes. In recent years, with the development of new fluorescent probes, it provides researchers with an effective tool for visual analysis of intermediate metabolism, so that they can study complex intermediate metabolism processes at the cellular level.

CD BioSciences is a biotechnology company, which has been committed to the research and development of fluorescent probes and live cell imaging technology for many years. We can provide you with fluorescent probes to visualize the process of intermediate metabolism and help you study the role and changes of different biomolecules in intermediate metabolism.
