Pectin, a heteropolysaccharide, is an ideal biomaterial for medical applications such as serosal wound healing and visceral tissue repair. It forms strong mechanical bonds with the underlying tissue. The extraordinary adhesive properties of pectin on organ surfaces are highly water-dependent and most likely result from a microstructural entanglement of pectin polysaccharide chains with the similarly textured glycocalyx, a glycoprotein coat, covering mammalian cell surfaces. We employ label-free 3D stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy to investigate the hydrophilicity of pectin hydrogel without the altering effects of sample fixation, dehydration, or tissue staining. In particular, we quantify the time scales, on which two different hydration mechanisms take place. Furthermore, the transition zone between pectin and porcine serosal tissue is imaged to obtain quantitative insights into the entanglement between pectin and mammalian glycocalyx.
