ICC welcomes GlycoSpot as new ICC Corporate member!

GlycoSpot is a biotechnology company specializing in the development and production of assay kits for carbohydrate active enzymes based on the industry-standard 96 well format. Enzymes are essential components of many industrial processes and are increasingly regarded as attractive alternatives to traditional chemical-based processing since they are effective, environmentally benign, cost effective, and precise in their mode of action. There is a vast diversity of industrially relevant enzymes in nature (especially in microorganisms) and recent advances in nucleotide sequencing have enabled enzyme producers and academics to mine genomes for enzyme-encoding genes. However, there is currently a serious deficiency in technologies for empirically screening the activities of expressed enzymes and culture broths. This has created a bottleneck in enzyme discovery programmes. GlycoSpot assay kits tackle this bottleneck and release the potential of enzyme technology The company is based on knowhow developed at the University of Copenhagen (KU) and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the founders have over 30 years combined experience in the field and extensive collaboration with academic and industrial partners.
