Natural Products and Traditional Chinese Medicine Information

Characterize and analyze with ease

The complex nature of medicinal plant and animal extracts requires a metabolomic-style approach to determine the active constituents of a product. The study of variations components and therapeutic response to preparations from different regions, seasonal changes, and strains are all areas of interest as researchers try to understand the mechanism of action and how to improve upon these interesting therapeutics. We provide advanced sample preparation capabilities, analytical instruments and software solutions for the complete natural products analysis workflow.
