Scientists faced with the challenging task of sample preparation and characterization of (native) glycans now have a new kit to make the task easier and increase MS ionization efficiency for direct analysis. Waters Corporation today introduced the MassPREP™ Glycoanalysis Kit and MassPREP HILIC µelution Plate.

Glycosylation is one of the most important types of post-translational modification (PTM) in proteins. Due to the high degree of heterogeneity, the characterization of glycans is a difficult task. The efficient sample deglycosylation is a key requirement for a successful and sensitive glycan analysis. Nevertheless, the quantitative glycan release (e.g. using enzymes) is rarely achieved, since the glycosylation sites of the proteins are often obstructed by the protein secondary and tertiary structure.

The SPE method using this kit is fast, efficient, and requires minimum sample manipulation said product manager Beth Gildea. The kit uses an enzyme friendly surfactant, RapiGest™ SF to aid in protein solubilization prior to deglycosylation, followed by a novel micro-scale hydrophilic-interaction chromatography (HILIC) solid phase extraction (SPE) plate (Waters MassPREP HILIC µelution Plate) for rapid sample cleanup prior to MALDI MS analysis using highly purified MALDI matrix (Waters MassPREP MALDI Matrix, DBH).

Waters introduced this solution at WCBP 2005: The 9th symposium on the Interface of Regulatory and Analytical Sciences for Biotechnology Health Products which occurred from January 9-13, at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel, in Washington, DC.

These products are available for immediate shipment. For more information on this and other Waters chemistry consumable solution, visit
