Qingdao ZolanBio Co., Ltd

Shandong Sheng 266555

Zolanbio developed multiple micro-encapsulation technologies to further enhance the stabilities and bioavailabilities of the over 50 antioxidants which have thermosensitive and photosensitive characters, such as, astaxanthin, lutein, lycoypene, polyunsaturated fatty acids and some proteins.


Astaxanthin: Astaxanthin is a powerful, naturally occurring carotenoid pigment that ‘s found in certain marine alga and animals. Often called “the king of the carotenoids”, astaxanthin is recognized as being one of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature, and has been widely used in food, dietary supplement, medication, cosmetics, and many others.

Zolanbio focused on algal studies. Start from Haematococcus Pluvialis species selection and caltivation, to astaxanthin extraction, purification, and microcapsule production as well, Zolanbio strictly controls every single process of production to ensure the best and most reliable quality.


Product list of Astaxanthin:  

1, Haematococcus Plucialis powder (1%~5%); 2, Astaxanthin Oleoresin (5%, 10%); 3, Astaxanthin Microcapsule CWS/Beadlets (1%, 2%, 2.5%)


Lutein Series: Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids presented in high concentrations in the human retina which are involved in the photoprotection of the human eyes. Lutein may also protect the skin from ultraviolet(UV)-induced damages. Since electronic devices have been frequently used in our life, supplement of lutein became an important solution to maintain vision health. Lutein is also one of the best natural pigments that has been widely used in food and cosmetics.

Zolanbio is committed to efficient extraction of bioactive compounds from natural resource. To improve the low efficiency of raw material utilization in the course of the lutein ester production. Zolanbio invented a new joint preparation technology that allows us to produce high purity lutein, lutein ester, and zeaxanthin in a better and more efficient way.


Product List of Lutein Series:

1, Lutein/lutein ester/zeaxanthin powder (5%~90%); 2, Lutein/lutein ester/zeaxanthin microcapsule CWS/Beadlets (5%, 10%); 3, Lutein/lutein ester/zeaxanthin oil suspension (10%,20%, 30%)


Zolanbio has significant advantages in the field of microalgal resources, and has grasped the key technologies from upper-stream species selection and algae cultivation to the down-stream extraction and purification of bioactive compounds from microalga. Our company has collected and isolated several hundred microalgal species with excellent characters, many has been successfully used to produce bioactive substances, such as astaxanthin, phycocyanin, algal polysaccharide, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and so on. Our scientists have developed many advanced techniques and standard operation protocals related to screening and cryopreservation of microalga. On this basis, we also tested and potimized several photobioreactor systems in order to explore the possibilities of cultivation of the microalga in a more efficient and economic way. Several inventions have been patented in the field of microalgae species selection, cultivation and screening of bioavtie compounds as well.


Product list of algal bioproducts:

1, Astaxanthin; 2, Phycocyanin; 3, Fucoidin; 4, Fucoxanthin; 5, Spirulina Polysacchride; 6, DHA.


Due to the photo-thermo-sensitive and low-bioavailability characters of these bioavtive compounds from alga, Zolanbio developed a variet of micro-encapsulation technologies, including nano-size cold water dispersion technology, double shell micro-encapsulation technology, and many others. These technologies significantly improve the stability and bioavailability of the bioactive compounds. Aditionally, further applications of these lipid-soluble compounds in powder type of will be much more ocnvenient.

Advantages of Zolanbio’s Microcapsule: Doulbe shell structure (Over 98.5% enwrapping efficiency), Low-temp desiccation (dry under 40? low temperature), Cold water soluble.


Product List of Microcapsule:

Astaxanthin, Lutein, Lutein ester, Zeaxanthin, β-carotene, Capsanthin, Lycopene, Fucoxanthin, DHA, Linseed Oil, Vitamin E, Hemp Oil, and many others.
