What is e-BQC lab? Antioxidant Capacity Determination
What is e-BQC lab based on?
e-BQC lab is a small device that works with low cost e-BQC fungible strips. It is based in electrochemistry, the science that revolves around reduction and oxidation of molecules. With only a drop of sample and in less than a minute, a quick and reliable measurement of the sample’s antioxidant capacity, allowing to differentiate between Q1 and Q2.
This differentiation (Q1 and Q2) is very valuable, since, in traditional methods, we only obtain a value (regardless of the type of antioxidant that we find ourselves against), so it is not a real antioxidant capacity.
It allows to differentiate the type of antioxidants that the sample possesses, allowing us to weigh the measurements and obtain a more complete assessment of the total antioxidant capacity.
The higher the value of the intensity, the more molecules are oxidized to that potential, and therefore the sample has a greater antioxidant capacity. This results in a greater resistance to oxidation.
