The advent of the Food Safety Modernization Act has imposed tighter regulations on the dietary supplement and natural products industries. This stresses the importance of robust testing methods for identification of botanical ingredients. In this workshop you will learn how to use automated flash chromatography as a tool to isolate botanical components, uncover adulterants, reduce sample preparation time and create reference standards. Get hands-on experience using modern flash chromatography in conjunction with other analytical techniques to accurately determine purity and verify identity of botanical ingredients. Isolation methods for common botanicals are included in the course materials.
Who should attend?
- Regulatory compliance personnel
- Laboratory personnel
- Method development chemists
- QA/QC chemists
- Natural products researchers
- Anyone isolating and/or purifying botanicals, vitamins, carbohydrates, unknown/clandestine compounds or small molecules
