Not long ago, natural potent immune modulators such as FK-506 (Tacrolimus®) and rapamycin
(Sirolimus®), anticancer taxol (Taxotere®), and antimalarial artemisinin were developed into
important life-savings drugs. Based on the historical accomplishments, we are certain the search for
biologically active components from botanical sources will continue in future. Plants and microbes
will reveal substances with potential to become new block busters in important disease categories.
Aside from pure individual natural products the pharmaceutical industry is increasingly interested
in a potential to produce highly standardized natural extracts that have been supported by clinical
studies. This is not a brand-new approach; in Europe standardized herbal extracts have a long
The dietary supplement market has also been advancing fast on the trend of the health-related
benefits associated with edible plants and herbs. In response, we have a booming market for
“functional foods” – products, with enriched content of beneficial components.
In every case involving natural products, processing of plant extracts requires experience and
skills that we can offer to our clients, enabling them to solve their problems faster and more
Every product derived from natural sources requires the processing of the plant material to either
produce highly controlled fractions or purified compounds during the R&D and the production stages.
Over the years, we have garnered expertise in a full-scale product development. We can help you:
Identification of Activity in Your Botanical Source
Before getting involved, some basic exploratory experiments can help verify the biological activity
for the components in your botanical source.
Isolation of Active Components for Identification and Biological Testing
Once the targets are verified, the compounds must be isolated and identified. Suitable quantities
must be isolated of each target to facilitate elucidation and biological testing.
Determination of Product’s to Market Feasibility
With all the experimental data available on the target, market research can be performed to
determine return on investment and market potential for the product.
Develop Scale-up Methods for Market Demands
Once everything is green-lit, scale-up method development can begin to move the product to market.
