New game changing ready-to-use enzyme activity screening tool

Insoluble Chromogenic Polymer Hydrogel (CPH) and Insoluble Chromogenic Biomass (ICB) substrates enzyme screening kits, developed at the University of Copenhagen partially under BioValue (P3) and commercialized by GlycoSpot represent a state-of-the-art high-throughput enzyme screening platform. The kits are suitable for any industry that uses enzymes as part of its production/refining process. CPH and ICB substrates represent two complementary aspects of enzyme screening, from enzyme activity and specificity screening towards defined pure polysaccharides (CPH substrates) to assessment of biomass degradability using known enzyme cocktails (ICB substrates). Our recently published video article in the Journal of Visualized Experiments explains how our technology works and how it can be used based on some demonstrational experiments.
