GlycoNet has centralized research facilities to provide access to technical expertise. These core services allow researchers to access essential scientific infrastructure at a reasonable cost that would otherwise be cost prohibitive. Our core services include:

Synthèse de Glucides

The chemical synthesis of glycans is a highly specialized research area, requiring individuals with exceptional expertise. The Network has one of the highest concentrations of glycan synthesis scientists worldwide. In addition to expertise, we serve as one of only three beta test sites for novel automated instrumentation for synthesizing glycans. We also have the infrastructure and expertise to analyze and characterize the structure-function relationships of carbohydrates and provide consulting and troubleshooting. Synthesis scale-up could be provided by our partners. Examples of carbohydrate synthesis include: Oligosaccharides, building blocks, sugar nucleotides, cyclodextrins, rhamnolipids, sphingolipids, glycopeptides, Kdo glycosides, solid-phase oligosaccharide synthesis, chemoenzymatic synthesis, solid-phase synthesis using your building blocks, glycoconjugation methods, glycoconjugate synthesis, and more. Please inquire for a quote.

Analyse Structurale des Glycanes

We offer a unique set of services and expertise for solving your problems in glycomics research. We are experienced in the analysis of complex glycans and glycoproteins and can provide routine analysis or help to interpret complex data.


  • Caractérisation de routine des échantillons d'oligosaccharides pour le contrôle de la qualité et l'analyse
  • Détermination de structure complexe, y compris l'analyse conformationnelle à haute résolution et l’analyse de complexes protéine-glucide
  • RMN 1D/2D (300, 400, 500, 600, 700 MHz), RMN STD
  • Analyse de composition (stoechiométrie) de polysaccharides

Spectrométrie de masse

  • Séquençage d’oligosaccharides et de glycanes
  • Détermination de structures de glycanes rares ou modifiées

Modélisation moléculaire

  • Dynamique moléculaire des glycoprotéines et des complexes protéines-glucides
  • Gaussian

Interactions biomoléculaires

  • Surface Plasma Resonance (BIAcore)
  • Microcalorimétrie

Glycan analysis is often complex and can require advanced training. We will work with you to interpret data from even your most complex samples.

Criblage de Banque de Données de Glucides

Glycan Screening Facility

The Glycan Screening Facility uses advanced electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) instrumentation and methods to screen carbohydrate libraries and other classes of compounds against target proteins. This can be used to identify novel inhibitors and natural receptors for developing new and effective treatments for a variety of diseases including bacterial and viral infections.

Our carbohydrate collection includes over 250 compounds (including ABH and Lewis histogroup antigens, human milk oligosaccharides, gangliosides, and plant and bacterial oligosaccharides). The Glycan Screening Facility is dedicated to developing novel ESI-MS methods which allow identification, characterization, and quantification of protein-carbohydrate interactions in vitroentre les protéines et les glucides. Les chercheurs peuvent accéder à ce service de Criblage de Glycanes par le biais de collaborations de recherche ou avec frais de service.

48Hour Discovery Inc.

48Hour Discovery Inc. a été créé en février 2017 en tant qu'entreprise autonome avec le soutien de GlycoNet et en partenariat avec Alberta Glycomics CentreCe service accéléré est conçu pour aider les universités et les entreprises en découverte moléculaire dans les domaines de la thérapeutique, du diagnostic et du développement de sondes.

At 48Hour Discovery, a client mails the protein solution for analysis and in as few as forty-eight hours later, scientists provide a list of molecules that bind to the protein. The screening services provide risk management, expert analysis and partnerships with the Network’s academic and industrial collaborators.
