Quality Capabilities

To reduce variability on the front end, we have established analysis standards and only accept raw ingredients from compliant, pre-approved vendors. Our analysis and refinement procedures are undertaken by highly sophisticated quality control equipment that optimizes the purity, identity and safety of our sourced materials.

Capabilities

ICP-MS

ICP-MSA four pole mass spectrometry device of high sensitivity, the Inductively Coupled Plasma-MS is particularly advantageous for trace determinations of metals like Pb, Cd, Hg, As, etc. and surveying for unknown or unexpected elements. The detection capability of 0.1 ppm at 1% wt. is superior to the often compared ICP-AES of the same sample type. Comparatively, the ICP-MS also has the ability to obtain information about isotopes, which are common for many elements and missed by traditional mass spectrometry. [9]

HPTLC

HPTLCA simple, fast and efficient upgrade to conventional Thin Layer Chromatography, this higher performance, automation-enhanced technique has improved the resolution and thus separation ability of plated analyses. A standard in the pharmaceutical industry, this advanced technique far surpasses more crude qualitative assessment procedures by providing reproducible, quantitative analyses important for fingerprinting and GMP conformity. [10]

GC MS

GC-MSGas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry in combination specialize in separating out and quantifying volatile and semi-volatile analytes. Pesticide testing is a good example of its use. GC is a temperature-controlled process that separates out the components of a given sample by weight and size, while the MS characterizes and quantifies each component accordingly. GC MS is eco-friendly and performs at high speeds for increased productivity. [11]

GC with HEADSPACE

Headspace sampling is an automated addition to conventional GC, which allows for improved contrasting between volatile oils and other components in a given mixture. With a more refined sample, the purity and relative amounts of a particular substance in the mixture can be obtained with greater ease, speed and accuracy. [12]

PREPARATIVE HPLC

Preparative-HPLCThe high performance, preparative use of Liquid Chromatography isolates known or unknown compounds from a mixture for further study of structure, activity, toxicology, etc. This instrument advances the practice of traditional separation methods, like extraction, distillation or crystallization by using high flow rates and large columns for precise and pure outputs. HPLC can be used for compound analysis, but lacks the sensitivity required to tease out compounds that are structurally very similar. For this reason, our lab defers to more sensitive instrumentation in analyzing the HPLC isolated compounds. [13]
