Herbal identification testing coming soon
26 May 2021
Cawthron Institute will soon become the first analytical laboratory in New Zealand to offer a ‘Herbal ID’ testing service that provides manufacturers with full confidence in the traceability of their herbal ingredients back to a primary source or certified herb.
Cawthron is committed to offering a full spectrum of services to our customers, which is why we have invested in both methods and instrumentation to be able to offer a more comprehensive herbal identification package.
Our HPLC and HPTLC capability is being enhanced to reduce the validation burden on the industry and meet tighter timelines. The ability to perform this analysis in NZ will allow manufacturers greater control of their processes and reduce costly delays.
This exciting development will allow industry to continue to develop and market new products with confidence and in a timely manner.
We expect to launch the new testing service within the coming months, and invite interested customers to sign-up to our laboratory testing services mailing list for news and updates.
