Lectin Arrays


A high throughput platform for the rapid characterization of glycosylation in recombinant proteins, serum proteins, exosomes, or ECM proteins

The technology utilizes a panel of nearly 50 different lectins as probes for testing the presence of a large number of biologically relevant glycan binding motifs and structural elements simultaneously on N- and O-glycans as well as glycolipids without requiring previous deglycosylation.

We have over 15 years of experience in lectin microarray development and analysis covering recombinant glycoproteins, serum glycoproteins, synthetic neoglycoproteins, cells, exosomes, or extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins.

Over 48 highly purified lectins isolated from natural sources with well-established glycan binding specificities are printed in 5 replicates alongside control samples (printing buffer containing BSA). We print our lectin microarrays on Premium Schott Nexterion 3D hydrogel glass slides with an ultralow background and excellent protein stabilization properties.

If you have larger sample numbers or are interested in a specific lectin panel, please inquire about custom array development.

Subarray design example: current lectin distribution can differ from the shown slide design, please inquire.

Method Summary

Glycoanalysis is performed in triplicate.

Glycoprotein samples are fluorescently labeled, and incubated on the lectin array, and the interactions are quantified by fluorescence detection. Semiquantitative binding data is provided as histograms showing the corresponding lectin interaction profiles for each sample. Raw data (xlsx format) and a fluorescence image of the incubated lectin microarrays are also provided.
