    Anthocyanins Analysis Service

      Anthocyanins are a class of natural pigments widely found in plants, belonging to the flavonoids. Their basic structure includes a phenyl ring (A ring) and a six-membered oxygen-containing ring (C ring), connected by a bridge (B ring). Depending on the substituents on the B ring, anthocyanins can be categorized into different types: pelargonidin, cyanidin, peonidin, delphinidin, petunidin, and malvidin. These compounds are primarily found in petals, fruits, leaves, and stems, providing vibrant colors such as red, purple, blue, and black. In addition to their role in pigmentation, anthocyanins have various biological functions: (1) Antioxidant effect: They scavenge free radicals, reduce oxidative stress, and protect cells from damage. (2) Anti-inflammatory effect: They alleviate inflammation by inhibiting related enzymes and signaling pathways. (3) Anti-cancer effect: They inhibit cancer cell proliferation and metastasis and induce apoptosis through multiple mechanisms. (4) Cardiovascular protection: They improve vascular function, lower blood pressure, and prevent cardiovascular diseases. (5) Anti-diabetic effect: They help regulate blood sugar levels and increase insulin sensitivity, aiding in diabetes prevention and management.

      2. Comprehensive Metabolic Profiling: We can detect individual anthocyanins and analyze their various metabolites, providing a thorough metabolic profile to help researchers understand anthocyanin metabolism and function.


      3. High-throughput Analysis: Capable of analyzing numerous samples simultaneously, enhancing experimental efficiency and suitable for large-scale metabolomic studies.


      4. Customized Services: We provide personalized analysis plans based on specific research needs, including sample preparation, data acquisition, processing, and interpretation, ensuring the achievement of clients' research objectives.


      5. Data Reliability and Reproducibility: Through stringent quality control and standardized procedures, we ensure data accuracy and reproducibility, providing a solid foundation for scientific research.


      6. Multidimensional Data Interpretation: Using various data analysis methods and bioinformatics tools, we can interpret data from multiple perspectives, helping researchers uncover potential biological significance and mechanisms.


      7. Wide Application Fields: Anthocyanins metabolomic analysis has significant applications in food science, plant research, medical health, and other fields, supporting multidisciplinary research needs.



      Antioxidant Properties: Anthocyanins protect against harmful substances known as free radicals. Accumulation of free radicals in the body leads to oxidative stress. This oxidative stress can cause inflammation and increase the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease (3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source). Consequently, antioxidants help reduce oxidative stress and lower the risk of disease.


      Reducing Inflammation: Anthocyanins may also help reduce inflammation.


      Protection Against Type 2 Diabetes: Regular consumption of anthocyanin-rich foods might offer protection against type 2 diabetes.


      Reducing Cancer Risks: Anthocyanins, a type of flavonoid with strong antioxidant properties, are believed to have significant anti-cancer effects.
