Pigmentation Testing

At PKDERM, we specialize in the evaluation of depigmenting properties of novel compounds, with a primary focus on studying tyrosinase activity through in vitro assessments using L-DOPA (L-3,4-Dihydroxyphenylalanine). Additionally, we excel in measuring melanin synthesis within melanocytes.

1. Tyrosinase Activity Measurement:

Tyrosinase is a key enzyme involved in melanin synthesis. Assessing its activity is crucial in understanding the potential depigmenting effects of compounds. PKDERM employs in vitro techniques, including L-DOPA assays, to precisely measure tyrosinase activity. This analysis provides valuable insights into how compounds may influence melanin production, supporting the development of depigmenting agents.

2. Melanin Synthesis Measurement:

Our expertise extends to the measurement of melanin synthesis within melanocytes, the specialized cells responsible for melanin production. By quantifying melanin synthesis, we gain a comprehensive understanding of how compounds affect pigmentation processes. This knowledge is essential in the development of products targeting pigmentation-related concerns in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

Our meticulous approach to pigmentation analysis allows us to provide clients with valuable data on the efficacy of compounds in modulating melanin production. Whether you are developing skincare products, cosmetics, or pharmaceutical solutions, PKDERM’s expertise in pigmentation studies can guide your research and product development efforts effectively.
