Natural Products & Traditional Medicines

The names vary: traditional medicines (TM), therapeutic natural products, traditional Chinese medicines (TCM), herbal medicines. But one question always remains: How do they work? Analytical laboratories strive to understand their pharmacology in hopes of obtaining evidence-based validation of effectiveness and establish safe production guidelines.

Today, standard analytical techniques are being used more and more often across a variety of tasks, from screening to sample profiling to QA/QC. Waters can provide the high-quality separations and detection capabilities necessary to identify active compounds and chemical ingredients in highly complex samples. The Waters workflow-based approach, combined with user-friendly software, enables you to quickly perform sample analysis and obtain maximum information.
