Our expertise encompasses all research dealing with glycans. Whether you are working in:
We can help you analyse your recombinant proteins, help you in drug discovery projects, biomarkers research as well as in quality control.
Pharmacy, Cosmetics, Veterinary
Involved in the main biological functions, glycan analysis is a crucial step for drug discovery and therapeutic protein development.
Applications: Glycosylation profile research and analysis. Molecule identification according to their respective and specific profiles. Full glycoform control related to the host cell production system. Regarding regulations, directive ICH Q6B recommends, on top of a monosaccharide composition analysis, to implement different methods providing informations on the glycan structure. FDA in the Process and Analitycal Technology (PAT) initiative encourages the development of methods allowing a better assessment of a product quality. The lectin glycoprofiling approach provided by GLYcoDiag could be used as these alternative method for in-process monitoring.
Health Diagnostics, Food-Hygiene and Environment
Involved in host-pathogen recognition, glycan structure analysis allows the discovery of relevant targets parameters and the development of specific in-vitro diagnostic products.
Applications: Specific glycosylation identification of pathogens or molecules. Test development based on the glycosylation profile of the target. Polysaccharides analysis of biofilms, sewage sludge, water.
Food Industry, Agriculture, Cosmetics
Involved in the physico-chemical and biological properties of molecules, glycan structure and composition are important for the formulation development and the quality control of raw material up to end products.
Applications: Glycosylation profile of key molecules that are included in the product composition. Metabolite monitoring in fermentation process (dairies and breweries).
In the project of analysing new preservatives products, we also perform competitive Micro-Challenge tests for your products. If you need to test new preservatives, we can offer a customised analysis to determine the efficacity of your formulation.
