Tissue Carbohydrates Imaging Services

Tissue Carbohydrates Imaging Services

Carbohydrates have important roles in organisms, including energy storage and transfer, cell signaling, and structural support. Understanding the distribution and characterization of carbohydrates in tissues is critical to understanding biological processes and disease mechanisms. While traditional light microscopy techniques are in common use to observe tissue structure and molecular composition, infrared imaging can provide us with richer chemical information. Different chemicals have unique infrared spectral characteristics, so infrared imaging can be used to analyze the various molecular components of tissues.


Tissue Carbohydrates Imaging Services

CD BioSciences utilizes infrared imaging to enable imaging and analysis of carbohydrate in various tissue sections (e.g., damaged cartilage tissue sections, tumor tissue sections, intestinal tissue sections, neural tissue sections). Traditionally, analysis of biological tissues has typically been performed using microscopic methods and enhanced by staining for low visual contrast to highlight regions of interest and specific components. However, staining methods have several drawbacks such as time-consuming, complexity and cross-reactivity issues. Our infrared imaging technique does not require stains, but instead utilizes infrared light to study the vibrations of molecules, which provides detailed information about the chemical composition of the tissue sample. Our services include, but are not limited to:

Quantitative imaging analysis of carbohydrates

CD BioSciences performs quantitative analysis by measuring the infrared absorption characteristics of carbohydrates in tissue sections. We can provide our clients with quantitative data on changes in carbohydrate content and concentration in different regions or cell types, which can help to understand the distribution of carbohydrates in different tissue types, disease states and biological processes.

Qualitative imaging analysis of carbohydrates

Infrared imaging can also help us identify and differentiate between different types of carbohydrates in tissue sections. By comparing infrared spectral features, we can identify specific carbohydrate components present in tissues for our clients and thus perform qualitative analysis of the composition of tissue samples.

Molecular mapping and imaging analysis service

We can generate high-resolution molecular mapping images of carbohydrates for our clients to demonstrate the spatial distribution of carbohydrates in tissue sections, providing researchers with information on tissue structure and function.

Drug discovery and efficacy assessment service

Infrared imaging can be used primarily in drug discovery and efficacy assessment processes. By analyzing changes in carbohydrates in tissue sections, researchers can understand the mechanisms of disease development, assess the impact and effectiveness of drugs, and screen potential therapeutic targets to guide drug discovery and optimize therapeutic regimens.


Our Advantages

Rapid analysis: infrared imaging allows analysis with minimal sample preparation, saving time and resources.
Stain-free: compared to traditional staining methods, IR imaging does not require the use of stains, avoiding cross-reactivity and background staining problems that can be introduced during the staining process.
High resolution imaging: using advanced focal plane array detector technology, ultra-fast, high-resolution infrared imaging can be realized, providing more detailed chemical information.
