About lutein

Lutein, also known as phytolutein, is a carotenoid that is widely found in vegetables, fruits, flowers and other plants.

Its CAS number is 127-40-2/ 105452-20-8.

Its Chemical formula is C40H56O2.

Its IUPAC name is β,ε-carotene-3,3'-diol.

Lutein is a tetraterpenoid compound with 3 chiral centers and 8 stereoisomers.

It is also the main pigment that constitutes the macular region of the human eye.

Sample requirements

Sample demand
Samples that have been lyophilized are > 0.5g.
For samples with low water content, such as stems, flowers, seeds, dormant buds, etc., fresh samples > 1g.
For samples with middle water content, roots and leaves (especially young leaves), fresh samples > 2g.
For samples with water content > 90%, if fruit (tomato, watermelon, citrus, etc.), fresh sample > 5g.
Sample mixed and repeat
In order to ensure the accuracy of the samples and reduce systematic errors during sampling, it is necessary to select more than 3 materials with the same condition for each sample. (※ The same condition refers to the same period, basically the same phenotype, and the same part.)
It is recommended that prepare more than 6 biological replicates.
Storage and transportation
Quick-frozen preservation with liquid nitrogen can minimize the leakage time of plant samples at room temperature.
Dry ice transportation (about 3~4kg dry ice is consumed every day, please use sufficient dry ice for transportation).
There is no restriction on plant varieties. For varieties with special requirements or rare varieties, please contact our staff for more information.
