Glycan Analysis

Glycan Arrays

Layout of Glycan Array I

Layout of Glycan Array I
with positions of immobilized glycans. Each glycan is printed in triplicate at high and low concentrations.


  • Glycan Arrays are useful tools for several applications:
    1. Analysis of binding specificity of glycan-binding proteins
    2. Studies on interaction of microorganisms
    3. Research on mechanisms of infection
    4. Search for autoantibodies
  • Fast testing of binding specificity by fluorescence analysis
  • Binding to 28 kinds of glycans and 24 kinds of ganglioside glycans can be investigated
  • Two areas of glycan concentrations are provided
  • The direction of immobilized glycans is well-controlled


  • The array consists of a unique plastic substrate that is covered by non-adsorptive biopolymer. On this, functional groups are placed that bind to reducing the ends of glycans. Special surface treatment enables to control directions of immobilized glycans.
