Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.

    Need more advice on solubility, usage and handling? Please email to: service@chemfaces.com

    After receiving: The packaging of the product may have turned upside down during transportation, resulting in the natural compounds adhering to the neck or cap of the vial. take the vial out of its packaging and gently shake to let the compounds fall to the bottom of the vial. for liquid products, centrifuge at 200-500 RPM to gather the liquid at the bottom of the vial. try to avoid loss or contamination during handling.

    The genotoxicity of lucidin, a natural component of Rubia tinctorum L., and lucidinethylether, a component of ethanolic Rubia extracts.[Pubmed: 3069188]
    The genotoxic activity of Lucidin (1,3-dihydroxy-2-hydroxymethyl-9,10-anthraquinone), a natural component of Rubia tinctorum L., was tested in a battery of short-term tests. The compound was mutagenic in five Salmonella typhimurium strains without metabolic activation, but the mutagenicity was increased after addition of rat liver S9 mix. In V79 cells, Lucidin was mutagenic at the hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyl transferase gene locus and active at inducing DNA single-strand breaks and DNA-protein cross-links as assayed by the alkaline elution method. Lucidin also induced DNA repair synthesis in primary rat hepatocytes and transformed C3H/M2-mouse fibroblasts in culture. We also investigated Lucidinethylether, which is formed from Lucidin by extraction of madder roots with boiling ethanol. This compound was also mutagenic in Salmonella, but only after addition of rat liver S9 mix. Lucidinethylether was weakly mutagenic to V79 cells which were cocultivated with rat hepatocytes. The compound did not induce DNA repair synthesis in hepatocytes from untreated rats, but positive results were obtained when hepatocytes from rats pretreated with phenobarbital were used. We conclude that Lucidin and its derivatives are genotoxic.
