Dextra UK Launched the World's Largest Commercial Glycan Array

Press Release ( - GöTTINGEN, Germany - Aug 26, 2016 - Dextra and the Institute for Glycomics at Griffith University have partnered to launch the world’s largest commercial glycan array and bioanalytical offering. The array features over 100 unique glycans, selected from a highly diverse library of glycan structures printed onto an epoxy coated slide.

This array enables rapid, high-throughput detection of the glycan interactions across a wide range of samples from proteins to whole cells, making it an extremely powerful tool in the study of the molecular biology of disease. The product manual provides more detailed information regarding the usage of the Glycan Array (Product Code: GAK001).

Product description:

1. Amine-functionalized glycans are printed onto epoxy-coated microarray slides through the use of a microarray printer.
2. Samples which can be used on the glycan array slide range from proteins to whole cells. Samples are fluorescently labeled for detection, either by fluorescent conjugate antibodies, or by directly labeling the sample with a fluorescent dye.
3. Slide images are acquired using a microarray scanner with appropriate settings for the fluorophore used. Analysis of images is performed using microarray analysis software and supplied gal. file for alignment.

Glycan Array includes:

1 x Dextra Glycan Array slide with barcode
3 x Blue Gene Frames with coverslips (volume of 65 μL).
Each slide contains three identical subarrays, with six spot replicates printed per array

Glycan strucures used for Glycan Array:

·         Sialylated oligosaccharides

·         Oligomannose core structures

·         Lactose based O-glycans

·         Galα1-3Gal series

·         Cell adhesion molecules

·         Blood group and Lewis antigens

·         N-Acetyllactosamine and Analogues

·         Complex type N-glycans

·         Sialylated oligosaccharides

·         Heparin and chondriotin derived oligosaccharides

·         N-Acetylgalactosamine core structures

·         Maltooligosaccharides

·         Neutral and sulfated Galacto-oligosaccharides
