Cactus Botanics
Up till now, a hot topic, the IDENTITY for botanicals, has been catching the public concern for a long time. The more people consume, the greater attention will be paid. For the industry, it is of significance to build up a thorough set of ID testing to ensure the raw herbs when getting in.
As is well-known, TLC and HPTLC both are common and valuable methods for ID testing.
TLC, thin-layer chromatography, is used to separate non-volatile mixtures. Different compounds travel at different rates. Therefore, there is a unique color spectrum belonging to every botanical.
HPTLC is an enhanced form of TLC. A number of enhancements can be made to increase the resolution achieved and to allow more accurate quantitative measurements. Thus, HPTLC is more accurate and popular in identity testing.
For CB, strict instruction and action shall be taken for qualified Botanical Extracts. ID testing is the most important one. The details are as follows.
CB always takes responsibilities to protect the legitimate rights and interests of consumers. Therefore, it is merited for CB to spare no effort to complete and improve this job. All of CB are hoping that every customer can obtain the best services with good quality.
