"A Simple, User-Friendly Protocol for Fluorescence Imaging"

This user-friendly protocol describes a simple protocol for imaging O-GlcNAc in cultured cells. Our technology takes advantage of the selective action of glycosyltransferases on substrate glycans to provide the most specific glycan visualization assay on the market. Protocols are guidelines. Parameters need to be optimized by end users.

"A Decade of Glycobiology: From R&D Systems to Bio-Techne"

This white paper summarizes nearly a decade of peer-reviewed research by Bio-Techne scientists. Over the years, R&D Systems and its sister brands have produced an ever increasing array of cell biology research products including proteins, antibodies, assays, cell culture reagents, and equipment. Meanwhile, in addition to developing the highest quality products for the market, Bio-Techne’s scientists have consistently published peer reviewed research independently and in collaboration with academic investigators. You will see that our team has consistently worked at the leading edge of glycobiology research and product development. The objective of our glycobiology research and development enterprise is to expedite your understanding of the central role of glycosylation in biology.
