Physicochemical Properties Analysis of Marine Polysaccharides

Physicochemical Properties Analysis of Marine Polysaccharides

Marine polysaccharides are complex carbohydrates derived from marine sources such as seaweed, microalgae, and shellfish. These polysaccharides possess unique physicochemical properties that have attracted significant attention in various industries, including food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and biotechnology. Studies on the biological properties of polysaccharides from marine eukaryotes and marine prokaryotes have shown that polysaccharides from marine environments can provide effective alternatives to traditional polysaccharides such as glycosaminoglycans. Marine polysaccharides have real potential for natural product drug discovery and the delivery of new marine-derived products for therapeutic applications.

At CD BioSciences, we specialize in the analysis and characterization of marine polysaccharides. At CD BioSciences, we extract polysaccharides using different extraction techniques such as conventional hot water extraction (HWE), microwave-assisted extraction (MAE), pressure-assisted extraction (PAE), and ultrasonic-assisted extraction (UAE). Our comprehensive services provide deep insights into the physicochemical properties of these biomolecules, enabling our clients to unlock their full potential for various applications.
