Algalif Receives Grant to Optimize HPLC Method for Astaxanthin Quantification

By News

“The internationally accepted HPLC-method for astaxanthin quantification is time-consuming, laborious, and prone to human error, which can cause fluctuations in the measured astaxanthin titer,” said Dr. Haraldur Gardarsson, Quality Control Manager at Algalif. “Our goals with this research project is to either resolve, circumvent the flaws within the current method, or define an entirely new HPLC method for more accurate astaxanthin quantification.”

The project will be conducted over the summer 2018 and will culminate with the submission of a proposal to the USP for improving the HPLC method.
