PHOTOCHEM® – Analysis of the antioxidative capacity of both water-soluble and lipid-soluble antioxidants with the PCL method
With PHOTOCHEM®, Analytik Jena AG offers the first system solution for the quantitation of antioxidants in water-soluble and lipid-soluble systems. Due to the use of the method of photochemiluminescence, the fast photochemical excitation of radical formation is combined with sensitive luminometric detection.
How does photochemiluminescence work?
Combines the very fast photochemical radical generation with the highly sensitive luminometric detection
Works fast, precise, efficient and environmentally beneficial
No dependence of measurements on a specific pH value or temperature
Delivers results of practical quantitative relevance for the characterization of the antioxidative status of organisms
First instrument for the measurement of water-soluble and lipid-soluble antioxidants in a single system
Extremely short measuring times – about 3 minutes
Very high sensitivity
System solution for the measurement of antioxidants; instrument and standardized ready-to-use kits for different applications
Simple handling – sampling, measurement and rinse cycles are automatic
