Our laboratories are fully equipped with avant-garde equipment to test for heavy metals in Herbal Products. We analyze the concentration of heavy metals such as cadmium, lead, arsenic, mercury and copper that are detected using ICP-MS.
Our laboratory carries out development of chromatographic fingerprinting methods using HPTLC, HPLC, GC, LCMSMS and GC MS for single herb and poly herbal formulations. We also support our clients with the routine chromatographic fingerprinting for the identification and quality control of the herbal ingredients and finished products.
We test for pesticide residue in herbal products, herbal medicines, raw herbs and herbal extracts to ensure compliance to global quality standards. We are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment such as LC MS-MS, GCMSMS, GCMS, GC with ECD, and NPD for measuring trace levels of pesticides in herbal medicines.
We have been conducting lab testing of herbal medicines since 1985 and have developed tests for quickly and cost-effectively identifying adulteration of herbal medicines with modern medicines such as steroids, painkillers, and antibiotics.
We are the first Herbal Testing Lab in India to be licensed by the Directorate of ISM & H and are recognized by AYUSH Since 2004 and accredited by NABL ISO/IEC 17025.
Auriga Research has a state of the art laboratory with equipment and analytical methodologies like: Chromatography (TLC, GC, HPLC, HPTLC, GC/MS, LC/MS/MS, GPC, Headspace Analyzer); Spectroscopy (FTIR, UV/visible, Atomic Absorption) Spectrometry (ICP/MS);
It is used for identification and quantification of herbal drugs. It is a separation technique to separate constituents of herbal extracts for identification and quantification of compounds and establishing the fingerprint profiles of mixtures and crude extracts.
We use HPTLC for identification and quantitative analysis of almost all marker compounds in herbal drugs. It saves ample time as different drugs are analyzed on the same plate.
ICP MS gives the advantage of analyzing all the metals at the same time with minimal manual intervention, which is required when analyzing samples on an AAS with hydride generation and graphite furnace assembly.
It is used as a powerful tool for chemical analysis to assure its efficacy, safety and quality. It is used to analyze multi components in complex herbal matrices such as aflatoxins and pesticides.
GC-MS analysis is used to identify various constituents in herbal oils and alcohol content in herbal syrups. It detects how much each constituent is present as a percentage.
Atomic absorption spectroscopy is a widely used technique for trace analysis of elements in matrices ranging from foods, waste waters, geological, pharmaceutical and biological.
UV Spectrophotometer is used to analyze the marker compound in herbal products samples. It detects UV absorbance, linearity graphs. It shows the maximum absorbance for the assay of the marker compound in herbal drugs.
Karl Fischer Titration
It is used to determine moisture content in chemical analysis to show whether the product has required physical characteristics and shelf life to determine the quality of the product.
