Relative Telomere Length Quantification Services


Relative telomere length quantification refers to the measurement of telomere length relative to a reference sample, typically using quantitative PCR (qPCR) or other techniques. This method allows for the assessment of telomere length changes in cells or tissues, providing valuable insights into aging, age-related diseases, and telomere maintenance. At CD BioSciences, we recognize the significance of telomere length dynamics in aging, driving our dedication to providing comprehensive telomere length quantification services for aging studies.


Overview of Our Relative Telomere Length Quantification Services

CD BioSciences takes pride in offering a comprehensive suite of relative telomere length quantification services tailored to meet the diverse needs of aging research. Our services encompass the accurate measurement and comparison of telomere length across different cell types, tissues, and age groups. By utilizing reliable and comprehensive technology, we ensure accurate quantification of relative telomere length, allowing researchers to gain insight into the dynamics of telomeres during the aging process.

Relative telomere length quantification by terminal restriction fragment (TRF) analysis

TRF analysis is the cornerstone of our relative telomere length quantification service. We perform enzymatic digestion of genomic DNA and then visualize telomere fragments by Southern blot analysis. By assessing the distribution and intensity of these fragments, we can accurately determine the average length of telomeres in a sample.

Relative telomere length quantification by quantitative PCR (qPCR)

We harness qPCR to deliver precise telomere length measurements, enabling researchers to gain insights into age-related dynamics. We amplify telomeric DNA and reference genes) from the same sample. Then, we calculate the relative telomere length by comparing the cycle thresholds for telomere amplification and reference gene amplification.

Relative telomere length quantification by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH)

Our services encompass the utilization of FISH, a powerful technique involving fluorescently labeled DNA probes that bind specifically to telomeric DNA. By quantifying the fluorescent signal, we can accurately measure relative telomere length with high precision and sensitivity.
