GENOMIC ANALISYS ON BOTANICAL EXTRACTS: INDENA AT THE FOREFRONT OF QUALITY AND SAFETY
After developing an effective method for genomic identification of botanical raw materials, through sophisticated DNA sequencing-based tests, Indena has recently opened a new frontier of research to guarantee quality and safety of botanical products. While DNA barcoding assure the traceability of the medicinal plant, as a matter of fact the final product consumers will use is a botanical extract. That’s why applying the same approach to the extracts is key to guarantee extracts’ quality and safety. After years of study and investments and thanks to its pioneering approach, Indena, among the first players in the market, has developed a reliable method of genomic analysis of the extract. Indena’s MIRTOSELECT ® is the first example of DNA technology applied to an extract. Bilberry extracts are largely used in pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products due to their known positive effects in particular on eye health and microcirculation. It is important to guarantee that bilberry extracts have the required specifications in terms of chemical components and the declared pure botanical origin, Vaccinium myrtillus L. berries. Learn how this new technology is able to ensure the authenticity of this ingredient, the original one.
