Impedance Measurements for Biomedical Research

Impedance Measurements for Biomedical Research

Biological organisms and their constituent organs, tissues and cells have unique electrical impedance characteristics, which change with the variation of composition, structure and metabolism. CD BioSciences is committed to developing technologies for impedance measurement and helping customers obtain useful biophysical parameters that can provide both insights into potential biochemical events and information about the impact of changes in cell behavior.


ElectricaI bioimpedance measurement, or impedance technology, is a technique that uses the electrical properties of biological tissues and organs and their variability to extract biomedical information related to the physiological and pathological conditions of the body. This technology has many advantages, including noninvasive, harmless, inexpensive, simple operation, rich functional information, accurate measurement results and high repeatability.

Over the last two decades, several instruments and analytical methods have been developed to measure the impedance properties of biological samples. Bioelectrical impedance-based medical testing techniques are now increasingly being used in research and clinical applications such as respiratory monitoring, body composition testing, gastric kinetics and cardiopulmonary resuscitation evaluation. Although the technology is subject to a number of factors in its operation, it still occupies an important place in basic science and biomedicine research.
