Scientific Support

We can provide the scientific and technical support you need for critical biological process development and manufacturing as well as for the design, development and validation of specific analytical methods. Whether it is complex carbohydrate analysis or just sialic acid content, or whether your specific method requires a simple colorimetric assay or a sophisticated LC-MS or NMR approach, we have the experience to get the job done with the precision and detail needed.

Our expertise includes:

  • Analytical chemistry: NMR; Mass spectrometry (ESI-MS, MALDI-MS, EI-MS, CI-MS); HPLC-MS; HPLC (with UV-Vis, RI, MALLS, PDA, Fluorescence, ELSD, radioactive flow detection systems); HPAEC-PAD; Capillary electrophoresis; IEF, cCIEF, etc.
  • Structural analysis of biomolecules: polysaccharides, glycoproteins, glycolipids, glycosaminoglycans, etc.
  • Carbohydrate analysis, including sialic acids
  • Glycobiology: including impact on the choice of expression systems, clone selection, and optimization of upstream processes

Grant Writing Support

We can support your pursuit of non-dilutive funding by helping to identify grant opportunities, providing technical writing of scientific content, and authoring the commercial plan for your grant applications (SBIR, STTR, R01, U01, etc.).
