Glycan arrays provide a convenient tool to determine the carbohydrate-binding characteristics of antibodies, proteins, bacteria, and cell cultures. We also produce custom glycan arrays on demand from our large library of glycans.
Glycan microarrays, a set of immobilized glycans printed on multi-well plates, were introduced in 2002, naturally following the advent of successful DNA and recombinant protein microarrays during the late 20th century. With glycan array technology, analysis of glycan binding proteins prevalent in mammals, pathogens, and immunity has aided research for cancer biomarkers, vaccine production, and medical diagnostics. *1
