Water Soluble Colorant Phycocyanin Powder Applied for Fluorescent Reagent
Due to the Fluorescent character of the phycocyanin, it is added in the production of colored reagent. The use of fluorescent phycocyanin includes the use in fluorescence detection and immunoassay, the use in the preparation of anticancer antitumor drugs or foods, the use in the preparation of radiation-resistant immuno-anti-inflammatory drugs or foods, in the preparation of photonic switches Use, as well as in the preparation of food or cosmetic additives.
The phycocyanin is extracted and purified from algae, and the molecular structure capable of emitting strong fluorescent phycocyanin under excitation of a suitable wavelength is a carrier protein and a chromophore linked by a thioether bond-open-chain linearly extended tetrapyrrole compound.

What are the advantages of Phycocyanin as a Fluorescent dyes ?
Fluorescent phycocyanin and its application
Phycocyanin is a protein that extracts strong fluorescence from algae and has a wide range of applications in research, medical, testing, power, health, food, cosmetics and other fields.
The phycocyanin is a component of the important light-harvesting pigment protein phycobiliprotein in seaweeds such as cyanobacteria, and its content in spirulina algae powder is as high as 20%. The phycocyanin is: R-PC in red algae, C-PC in cyanobacteria, PC-1 and PC-2 in cryptophytes, and PC-645, PC-629, etc. in Dinoflagellates. Acting as an antenna molecule in these algae, it absorbs light energy and can transfer excitation energy to a reaction center containing chlorophyll through a non-radioactive process.
Compared with chemically synthesized fluorescent dyes, the raw materials of phycocyanin are pure natural sources, rich in raw materials, stable in physical properties, good in water solubility, non-specific adsorption with proteins, nucleic acids, cells, etc., safe and non-toxic, The ecological environment is pollution-free. In addition, the phycocyanin has a large molar absorption coefficient, a high fluorescence quantum yield, a fluorescence emission wavelength of more than 550 nm, and a strong absorption band (440-650 nm), which is advantageous for selecting an excitation light source, and overcomes the large fluorescent background of the conventional fluorescent marker. Shortcomings such as quenching greatly improve the sensitivity of fluorescence detection.

General introduction about Phycocyanin supplied by Beyond Biopharma ?
The phycocyanin is an active protein isolated and purified from cyanobacteria, a rare porphyrin pigment protein, which is a natural food color that is allowed to be used by the state. More importantly, studies have shown that phycocyanin can significantly reduce tumor radiotherapy when it is applied to the human body. Normal white blood cell damage, stimulate the formation of colonies of red blood cells and platelets, improve immunity, and protect liver tissue. It has unique fluorescent properties and good biological properties. It Has the same properties as protein.
The phycocyanin is a water-soluble pigment, non-toxic, pure blue, clear and lovely, and can be used as an additive for food colorants and cosmetics. And it is very rich in protein, its amino acid composition is complete, essential amino acids account for 37.2% of the total.
