The world's FIRST noninvasive method of determining antioxidant activity by measuring skin carotenoids.


50 percent lighter and 60 percent smaller than its predecessor, the new Scanner S3 is the latest technology to emerge for your business' benefit. It's portable, battery-powered, has a faster warm-up time, and can scan faster - the average scan taking only 30 seconds to complete.


The patented Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is a cutting-edge testing tool that noninvasively measures carotenoid levels in living tissue. It provides an indication of a person’s overall antioxidant levels. With the scanner, everyone can know their own antioxidant status, empowering them to make improvements to their diet and lifestyle. They can also make an informed decision about their supplements.


The Pharmanex® BioPhotonic Scanner is the world’s first measuring tool to give you a Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS)—immediate evidence of carotenoid antioxidant activity in your body. Simply place the palm of your hand in front of the scanner’s safe, low-energy blue light and within a minute, you will obtain a reading of the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin. Your SCS is scientifically correlated to your 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, measuring them effectively without the interference of other molecular substances.This provides 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.



Raman Spectroscopy is a Nobel prize-winning technology that has been adapted for biological measurements and is an established scientifi c discipline backed by years of research. Nu Skin is the exclusive owner of the patented BioPhotonic Scanner technology.


The BioPhotonic Scanner is the world’s fi rst and only tool that measures carotenoid antioxidant levels non-invasively in living human tissue. It is validated by years of research, over 50 full-length peer-review articles, and key studies and demonstrations presented at a number of prestigious scientific meetings and conferences all over the world.
