Stachyose is a disaccharide sugar, which consists of two fructose molecules linked through a glycosidic bond. It occurs naturally in certain plants like soybeans, asparagus, and chicory. Studies have shown that stachyose, as an intestinal microecological regulator, can improve gastrointestinal function and increase water-soluble dietary fiber.

CD BioGlyco provides various oligosaccharide analysis services to meet the specific requirements of our global clients. Our analysis methods include high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAEC-PAD), capillary electrophoresis (CE), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and fluorophore-assisted carbohydrate electrophoresis (FACE), electrospray Ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS), matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS).
HPAEC-PAD is mainly used for stachyose analysis in samples containing various carbohydrates.
CE is applied to the analysis of various carbohydrates from glycoconjugates, which is one of the most powerful techniques in terms of resolving power.
HPLC is at present the main analytical technique used for carbohydrates analysis.
FACE is applied to determine the presence and relative abundance of individual oligosaccharides in a mixture of oligosaccharides at a simple and sensitive method.
These analytical techniques are applied for the analysis of oligosaccharides and have been widely used in the analysis of mixtures.
Our analysis process is as follows:
