Telomere Length Measurement in Human Samples for Aging Research


Telomeres shorten with each cell division, ultimately triggering cellular senescence. Telomere length in blood cells has been extensively studied as a biomarker of human aging and as a risk factor for age-related diseases. Telomere length is not well characterized in many human tissue types. Its association with related diseases is also unclear. Based on various telomere length measurement methods, CD BioSciences can provide our clients with telomere length testing services for various human samples.

Telomere Length Measurement in Human Samples for Aging Research

Overview of Our Telomere Length Tests in Human Samples

Our telomere length testing services utilize a wide range of methodologies to measure the length of telomeres in human DNA samples. Through precise and reliable techniques such as terminal restriction fragment (TRF), quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), we ensure accurate and reproducible results, pivotal for advancing aging research. We provide telomere length measurement services for a variety of human samples, including but not limited to:

Sample Requirements

Items Requirements
Sample types Tissue, cells, DNA
Sample volume > 1 mL of saliva, > 5×106 cells,> 200 μL blood
Notes Avoid freezing/thawing samples as it shortens the telomere length after sample collection.

What We Can Offer?

  • Cell separation. We offer personalized isolation services for your tissue sample or cell type to obtain accurate measurement results.
  • DNA extraction. We can perform DNA extraction for any sample, including saliva, oral swabs, cells, blood, etc. Our clients submit the name of the sample or other details to us. We generally use kits for DNA extraction.
  • Telomere length measurement. We provide different methods for measuring telomere length. The choice of primer sequences, reagents, and data analysis methods are varied according to the requirements. We provide a detailed step-by-step protocol with optimized tests. The protocol will help researchers determine telomere length and explore the association with aging and disease.

Deliverables of Telomere Length Tests

  • Comprehensive test reports. We provide detailed and comprehensive reports outlining the results of the telomere length testing, including the methodology used, raw data, analysis, and interpretation of the findings. Our reports offer valuable insights into the relationship between telomere length and aging, enabling our clients to draw meaningful conclusions from the data.
  • Quality control metrics. Our deliverables include information on rigorous quality control measures implemented during the testing process, which reassure clients of the reliability and reproducibility of the results.
  • Data analysis and interpretation. Beyond raw data, we offer robust data analysis and interpretation services using bioinformatics tools and algorithms. Our services transform the test results into actionable insights, shedding light on the complex relationships between telomere dynamics and aging-related phenomena.
