Delivering absolute quantification of a wide-coverage of 68 carotenoid compounds from wide varieties of species and tissue types.
Carotenoids serve various essential functions in plants. Apart from imparting diverse colors, they act as antenna pigments vital for photosynthesis, play crucial roles as photoprotective molecules, and serve as precursors for the synthesis of plant hormones.
Carotenoids have significant implications for human health. They are important for the synthesis of vitamin A and have antioxidative properties, which can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and various types of cancer.
MetwareBio has developed a sensitive detection method that accurately quantifies 68 carotenoids. This assay is perfect for studying pigment development in plants, food nutrition and antioxidant properties, and the regulation of carotenoid biosynthesis. MetwareBio has collaborated on over 1000 projects involving 300+ species in plant research. Speak to us regarding your plant research and how metabolomics can be applied.
