Canthaxanthin is a non-vitamin A-derived ketocarotenoid with a brilliant red color and strong coloring effect, which was originally added as a pigment in the feed of aquatic and livestock farm animals. It has various biological activities such as antioxidant, immune promotion and enhancement of cell gap junction communication. Numerous epidemiological surveys, tissue cultures, animal tests and human interventions have shown that canthaxanthin has preventive and therapeutic effects on a variety of cancers. In addition, keratins can improve immunity and protect skin and bone health. As the research on the physiological functions of canthaxanthin progresses and the pharmacological and pharmacodynamic tests are gradually improved, canthaxanthin is more and more widely studied in the field of human medicine and health care.
In order to accelerate the related canthaxanthin mechanism research, clinical application, new drug development, nutraceutical development and other projects, Creative Proteomics has established LC-MS/MS and GC-MS analytical platforms, which can provide you with canthaxanthin qualitative and quantitative analysis services.
