Nature provides the source for many dietary supplements. But there is still much to be learned about these molecularly diverse compounds. Our instruments and products allow customers to confidently extract, qualify and identify these complex natural products.
The administration of natural drugs is one of the five pillars of TCM that additionally encompasses acupuncture, massage techniques, kinesiatrics and dietetics. Over 90% of the used drugs are herbal products, mineral and animal products.
Adulteration of dietary supplements with active pharmaceutical ingredients and their analogues provides an excellent example of the challenges Covance faces and how these challenges are addressed using the Q Exactive mass spectrometer.
Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM) is a group of treatments that have been regularly employed over many hundreds of years and are still in use today. Thermo Scientific HPLC systems offer distinct benefits to help ensure the efficacy, purity and safety of these traditional remedies.
This white paper is intended to help the dietary supplements and nutraceutical industries better understand the new methodology described in United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Chapter <2232>, which sets limits for elemental contaminants in dietary supplements.
