Designed for R&D laboratories analyzing natural products and traditional Chinese medicines (TCM), our application-focused solution enables you to rapidly move from sample extract to product knowledge. The solution is built with a powerful accurate mass analytical platform combined with UNIFI Software and features an embedded Traditional Medicine Library. Used together, the system streamlines the process of identifying chemical structures in complex natural products.
Work smarter and faster in analyzing natural products
The UNIFI Scientific Information System enables scientists to capture and work with UPLC and QTof MS data within a single software environment.
For natural product analysis, data acquisition, processing, and report generation typically have been distinct activities that often involve several specialized analysts. The Natural Products Application Solution with UNIFI creates a holistic and streamlined workflow: helping you quickly move from analytical methods, to automated data processing, to confirming sample knowledge in conjunction with the Traditional Medicine Library, to reporting your findings.
Projects move smoothly, quickly, and accurately—no matter how complex your sample is.
Reviewing processed results in UNIFI Software. The Review tab includes workflows, component summary, chromatogram, and spectrum (both low and high collision enery scans) correlating to each of the components listed in the summary table above.
Specialized scientific reference library lets you to focus on exploration
Natural products can be challenging to fully analyze. While there are many online databases available, investigations of Chinese herbal ingredients take researchers out of their workflow, slowing down analysis and data mining. The Waters Natural Products Application Solution with UNIFI fills this gap: its Traditional Chinese Medicine Library includes all of the herbs detailed in the 2010 edition of Chinese Pharmacopoeia and several thousand unique compound entries.
Every compound entry lists its:
Each herb is identified by:
Confirmed chemical ingredients can be reviewed in UNIFI Software with a click of the Component-Confirmed Plot workflow (figure above, see left panel). The chemical identity and structure of each confirmed component are clearly displayed, and many are directly matched with data in the Traditional Medicine Library.
