Dealing with the biological functions of protein-glycosylation – a phenomenon found on almost all proteins in serum and on cell surfaces – calls for the availability of highly capable analysis by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS). Once this costly and valuable equipment is on hand, it can be used for vast variety of purposes in general protein and – well – glycoprotein analysis.

Our working areas are:
