Polyphenols Analysis Service

Online Inquiry


Polyphenol compounds are a class of antioxidant active substances widely present in plants. Most of them exist in the form of glycosides in plants, and a small part exist in the form of free aglycones. Polyphenol compounds have the effects of anti-oxidation, anti-aging, anti-free radicals, skin care and beauty, so they have great medicinal value. Polyphenol compounds can be extracted from plants, have good antioxidant properties, and are widely used in food and medical fields. The biosynthetic pathways of polyphenols include the shikimic acid and phenylpropanoid metabolism pathways. The HPLC-MS method is suitable for the analysis of complex matrix samples due to its simple sample processing, high sensitivity, reliable qualitative and quantitative results, and high degree of automation.

Sample Requirements

1. Tissues such as leaves, roots, stems, flowers, fruit pulp, peel tissue, etc., larger leaves need to be quickly cut into pieces with scissors, and the separated samples are quickly washed with sterilized water, and the absorbent paper is immediately put into the liquid after absorbing the excess water. Quickly freeze in nitrogen for more than 2 minutes, and then transfer to -80°C for storage to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.

2. For each sample, take no less than 3 g for fresh samples, no less than 1 g for dry samples. At least three biological replicates in each group, prepare a backup. The measured sample will not be returned, please keep a backup.
