CD BioGlyco, a biotechnology company specialized in glycobiology research, now provides glycan structure analysis to help with glycomics characterization research.


Carbohydrates, also known as glycans, are physiologically necessary. They are essential in all biological processes. Glycans’ molecular structure is constantly changing. Oligosaccharides and polysaccharides can be linear or branched, and their monomers can be connected in a variety of ways. Because of their high structural diversity, glycans can encode a wide range of information, including cell signals, immune responses, and molecular recognition.


However, glycoscience research has been hampered by the inherent structural diversity and complex biosynthesis. Glycan structure is complex because monosaccharide units can be conjugated to each other in a variety of ways, and their biosynthesis lacks a direct template, unlike amino acids in proteins or nucleotides in DNA, which are always conjugated together in the same way. This is also one of the main explanations for why, in contrast to the rapid advancement of genomics and proteomics, glycomics appears to still be in its infancy. In order to accurately identify glycan structures, a combination of high-throughput technologies is needed.


To meet the demands of customers for glycobiology research, CD BioGlyco now offers glycan structure analysis services with a systematic experimental system and first-class data processing platform.


Glycan structure analysis service at CD BioGlyco

Isoform Analysis

CD BioGlyco helps analyze the isoform structure of glycans by MS-based technology, such s EI-MS, FAB-MS, ESI-MS, MALDI-MS, GC-MS and LC-MS. And distinguish isoform of glycans with high sensitivity and high resolution.


Spatial Organization Analysis

Analyze glycans spatial organization through FAB-MS, MALDI-MS, and MS.


The newly released glycan structure analysis service, according to Anna, one of the representative speakers from CD BioGlyco, can be applied in research on macro/microheterogeneity of glycan, research on the biological function of glycan in cell signal transduction, glycoprotein function research and diseases diagnosis and treatment research.


“With an advanced platform and professional scientific staff, we are confident to provide efficient and reliable services to accelerate your scientific research through reducing project timelines.” Added Anna.
