CD BioSciences is committed to providing a variety of biophysical techniques to help our customers accurately decipher the detailed structure of cell wall components in their natural environment, without the need to deconstruct the cell wall. We are confident to provide you with professional and advanced technical support to accelerate your research progress.
Rapid developments in the field of biophysics in the last decade have given rise to a number of biophysical techniques that can be used for in situ plant cell wall composition analysis. For example, fluorescence and vibrational excitation, as well as mass spectrometry, can be used to identify and quantify plant cell wall components at a resolution level of μm or lower. However, these methods typically require sample homogenization, harsh pretreatment or extraction, and a high level of operator expertise. Difficulties in sample preparation (quality and adaptability of sections, flatness of samples, measurement of component accessibility) have limited the general application of these techniques.
In addition to the methods described above, cell wall probes (CWPs) are gaining interest as promising tools in the field of plant glycobiology. This method can be used to detect various cell wall components, especially their relative abundance and structural changes, in a high-throughput manner while providing insight into their molecular structure and interactions with other glycans.
