We look forward to providing you with fast and efficient solutions in the field of glycobiology.


Carbohydrates are often referred to as glycans and are physiologically essential. They play a key role in every biological process. The molecular structure of glycans is ever-changing. There are oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, which can be linear or branched, and their monomers can be connected in many different combinations. The huge structural diversity enables glycans to encode a wealth of information including cell signals, immune responses, and molecular recognition. However, this inherent structural diversity and complex biosynthesis have brought analytical challenges to glycoscience research. Complexity in glycan structures is due to the fact that monosaccharide units can be conjugated to each other in many different ways, and their biosynthesis lacks a direct template, as opposed to amino acids in proteins or nucleotides in DNA, which are always conjugated together in a standard manner. This is also one of the main reasons why glycomics seems to be still in its infancy compared with the rapid development of genomics and proteomics. The study of glycan structure requires a combination of high-throughput technologies to reliably identify glycan structures.
