Sample Submission

  • Include Request Form
  • Detail analyses to be performed
  • Estimate amount of material present
  • Samples should be salt-free, deteregent-free and dried

Control ("Blank") samples 

It is often desirable to include a control sample that closely mimics the composition of the sample matrix, especially if :

  • environmental contamination by glucose/xylose polymers (from clothing and paper dust) is an issue;
  • the sample is of low abundance;
  • the sample preparation involves several steps.

As a rule, the GlycoAnalytics Core will provide data for positive and negative controls which reflect the analytical steps performed in the Core for no charge. However, blank samples provided by investigators to obtain optimal results from their analyses will be billed as an additional sample.
