GlycoMIP will offer services in three areas. In addition to GlycoMIP supported instruments, users will have access to additional synergistic resources, potentially for a fee.
New equipment is being ordered and installed, with some services available beginning April 2021.
Synthesis Services will offer on-demand glycan synthesis using currently available automated technology.
Analytical Services will offer unique and expert characterization and analyses of molecular structure, interactions, and properties of glycomaterials.
Modeling Services will offer online atomistic modeling of carbohydrate 3D structures and provide input files for molecular dynamics simulations.
About GlycoMIP Facilities
GlycoMIP’s national user facility is housed at Virginia Tech’s Fralin Life Sciences Institute in Blacksburg, VA and at the University of Georgia’s Complex Carbohydrate Research Center in Athens, Georgia. Services are available for researchers from industry, academia and government agencies, ranging from expedited sample and service requests to full-scale research projects. Contracts can also be arranged to support the proprietary research and development needs of private-sector users.
If you are interested in these services, would like more information, or have questions, please contact us.
