GlycoSpot is an industrial biotechnology company specializing in the development, production, and distribution of ready-to-use enzyme activity screening tools.
The development of the chromogenic substrate and the assay technology started as a research project at the University of Copenhagen in 2012.
We aimed at developing a high-throughput assay for initial enzyme screenings. In December 2014 we founded GlycoSpot and took the technology to a real start-up environment. Since then we have been continuously growing.
