The patented Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is a cutting edge testing tool that non-invasively measures carotenoid levels in living tissue, providing an immediate indication of a person’s overall antioxidant levels. Everyone can instantly know their own antioxidant status, empowering individuals to make improvements to their diet and lifestyle, and help them to make an informed decision on which supplements are properly formulated to impact their antioxidant health.


Cellular Antioxidant Protection


The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is the world’s first measuring tool that gives you a Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS)—immediate evidence of carotenoid antioxidant activity in your body. By placing the palm of your hand in front of the scanner’s safe, low-energy blue light, within seconds you will obtain a reading of the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin—your Skin Carotenoid Scores (SCS)—which has been scientifically correlated to overall antioxidant status.
The technology of the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is based on an optical method known as Resonance Raman Spectroscopy, which has been used for many years in research laboratories.
The Scanner measures carotenoid levels in human tissue at the skin surface using optical signals. These signals identify the unique molecular structure of carotenoids, allowing their measurement without interference by other molecular substances and providing the person being measured with their own SCS.
In less than one minute you can find out if your diet, lifestyle and supplements provide the antioxidant protection you need for promoting health.


The measurement of your Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS) by the Pharmanex® BioPhotonic Scanner is a convenient and useful indication of tissue carotenoid concentrations and provides a good indication of antioxidant status and oxidative stress in the body.*
Your SCS is reflective of long-term lifestyle habits, and is not subject to changes during short periods of hours or days. Scanning every 6-8 weeks is ideal to help you determine whether you are consuming an adequate amount of antioxidant containing nutrients. *
*The BioPhotonic Scanner has not been evaluated or approved by the FDA and is not intended to diagnose, predict, treat, cure or mitigate any disease.
