We specialize in glycomic and glycoproteomic analysis of samples from a wide variety of biological and biotechnological sources.
Our expertise covers a wide range of glycoanalytical approaches which can be flexibly adapted to accommodate individual project requirements.
We specialize in high-throughput and in-depth glycoprofiling using our patented glyXbox™ technology platforms, delivering unprecedented performance and cost-effective scalability.
Glycoprofiling is provided for purified glycoproteins, protein mixtures (separated by 1D or 2D gel electrophoresis), or from complex samples.
Our exclusive glyXbox™ glycoanalysis platform generates highly reproducible results, thereby uncovering each sample’s characteristic glycomic composition pattern – its Fingerprint.
Comparative analysis of Fingerprints aligned via our patented orthogonal double alignment method provides reliable overviews of the glycomic macro-heterogeneity of samples.
Annotating a Fingerprint’s picked and integrated peaks with glycan structures yields a sample’s distinctive Glycoprofile.
Structural assignments are obtained via matching aligned peak positions to entries in a comprehensive glycan database. The assignment results are further refined by taking into account a priori knowledge about the sample material.
Further insights into the structural composition of particularly complex Glycoprofiles are gained via a combination of exoglycosidase treatments and repeated glycoprofiling.
Comparative evaluation of Glycoprofiles obtained from exoglycosidase experiments reveals additional in-depth structural information such as sialic acid linkages, isoforms, and more.
for determination of glycosylation sites and glycan heterogeneity, gained using high-resolution LC‑ESI‑MS.
of N- or O‑linked glycosylation sites of monoclonal antibodies or other recombinant glycoproteins.
via molecular mass determination of intact protein glycoforms, gained using high-resolution CE‑MS or LC‑MS.
With decades of combined glycoanalytical experience, our team of experts stands ready to assist you in planning, implementing and optimizing laboratory procedures and to guide you through all phases of product development.
We help you to select the best cell line regarding the desired glycosylation pattern of your target as well as to establish the best glycoanalytical approaches and methods.
In addition, we assist you in planning and designing your studies, for instance by identifying possible sources of contamination in your samples and advising you how to adapt your experimental setup accordingly.
We offer comprehensive glycoanalytical training programs for your team, covering all topics ranging from sample preparation to final data analysis.
Our training services are individually tailored to meet your specific needs and requirements and can be provided either on-site or remotely.
We provide our technical expertise to qualify and maintain your glycoanalytical systems and to assist in troubleshooting technical issues with your experimental setups.
Furthermore, we will advise you about which analytical systems, laboratory devices and workflows are best suited for your specific glycoanalytical purposes.
