Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is the only Coenzyme Q substance in the human body. It is also a class of fat-soluble quinone substances widely present in the body. It plays an important role in the mitochondrial respiratory chain. It can participate in the process of oxidative phosphorylation and ATP generation. CoQ10 has been proven to have antioxidant and scavenging free radicals, anti-tumor and improve human immunity, relieve fatigue and improve exercise capacity, anti-aging and anti-aging, and protect cardiovascular and other health effects. In addition to medicinal use, CoQ10 can be used as an additive in some high-end cosmetics and food additives, so CoQ10 is an important raw material for food, medicine, cosmetics and other industries.
Creative Proteomics has established a highly accurate and feasible reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) and LC-MS for the determination of CoQ10, providing qualitative and quantitative analysis of CoQ10 and its derivatives.

Advantages of Our Coenzyme Q10 Analysis Service
Experienced analysis engineers and stable and reliable analysis technology
Provide one-stop service and meet the needs of multi-sample type analysis
Use HPLC and MS platforms to accurately determine the content of CoQ10
Fast analysis speed and low price
In our technical process, the peak time of the sample is appropriate and the separation effect is good. The volume ratio of methanol to ethanol in the mobile phase is selected to be 20:80. At this time, CoQ10 has a good separation effect and chromatographic response. The method has high precision, good repeatability, good recovery rate and high feasibility.
