Get in-depth knowledge of your carbohydrate products
Carbohydrates are increasingly important food ingredients, serving many purposes such as texturizing and energy release. In other industries, a wide variety of functionalities make carbohydrates suitable for e.g. coatings, drug delivery, and bioplastic applications. All carbohydrates share the property that their monosaccharide constituents are connected through glycosidic linkages. Both the monosaccharide constituents and the type of linkages account for the 3D-structure and hence the functionality of the carbohydrate.
CarbExplore has developed a broad range of carbohydrate fingerprinting techniques. We screen for oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, glycoproteins, glucosamines, glucuronic acids, sialic acids and other carbohydrate derivatives. Our scientifically established methods are available to support your quality control of raw materials and products. For novel substances and impurities, we offer extensive carbohydrate structure elucidation.
