Scanner definition The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is a unique tool that non-invasively measures carotenoids levels in skin tissues using the long-accepted science of Raman Spectroscopy. By simply placing the palm of your hand in front of the Scanner’s low-energy blue light, you will obtain your Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS) within seconds.
Carotenoids definition Carotenoids are organic pigments found in fruits and vegetables that are primarily responsible for giving them their red, orange and yellow colours. The more colourful the fruits and vegetables you eat, the more carotenoids you give to your body. Beta-carotene Lycopene Lutein
Carotenoids are absorbed with the aid of dietary fat. Thus they are found predominately in the "fatty" areas of the body, including the skin. The fatty tissue in our palm is a prime area for testing because: 1.It is easily accessible, 2.It has a relatively high carotenoid content due to the higher amount of fatty tissue and, 3.There is a minimal difference in skin pigmentation between subjects in this tissue area.

What is Raman Spectroscopy? Raman Spectroscopy is a Nobel prize-winning technology In 1930, Sir C. V. Raman won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of Raman Light Scattering. This technology has been adapted for biological measurements and is backed by years of research. To know how it works click here >>here >>
