Herbs are made from plant extracts and are mainly used to regulate the body and treat diseases. Chinese medicine is mainly composed of botanical medicines (roots, stems, leaves, fruits), animal medicines (internal organs, skin, bones, organs, etc.) and mineral medicines. Herbs are a kind of Chinese medicine and account for the majority of Chinese medicines. Natural products have high practicability due to their chemical diversity, whether as pure natural compounds or standardized plant extracts, they provide many possibilities for the development of new drugs.
In terms of new drug research and development, the development cost of herbal medicine is low and the resources are abundant, but the quality of herbal extracts largely determines the quality of herbal products. For the development of any pharmaceutical product, it is essential to determine the purity, formula, and dosage of the product, and then it is necessary to compare and analyze the standard products. Herbal standard reagents that meet chromatographic standards and standards for pharmaceutical and drugs play a vital role in the development of pharmaceutical products.
API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) Production: APIs are used in the production of various preparations. The quality of APIs determines the quality of follow-up drugs, dietary supplements and other related products. At this stage, due to the wide variety of Chinese medicinal materials, the regional ecological environment, cultivation, processing base reserves and other factors, the quality of the same varieties is very different, which will greatly affect the quality of the raw materials produced. Therefore, it is necessary to sample the quality of each batch of API after obtaining the API. Chromatographic analysis of the quality of APIs is the most common analysis method. The use of herbal medicinal products standards for qualitative and quantitative analysis can obtain the active ingredients and purity of the APIs and obtain products that meet the standards of pharmaceutical and drugs.
Drug Discover: Drug research and discovery are mainly divided into new drug research and development and generic drug research and development, of which generic drug research and development account for a larger proportion. Generic drugs mainly introduce or change groups of existing drugs, which requires a large number of standard products to do preliminary reactions, and then verify the final product through chromatography, nuclear magnetism, etc., to obtain products with better effects. In the research and development process, it is quick and convenient to use herbal standard reagents as standards for comparison.
Dietary Supplements: Most herbal medicines can nourish the body, so some dietary supplements also use herbal medicines as human body mechanism regulators and nutritional supplements. Dietary supplements can be taken for a long time, so it must be guaranteed to be non-toxic. This requires that the addition of herbal medicines is limited. Therefore, in the research and development of dietary supplements, qualitative and quantitative analysis is carried out using herbal standard reagents as standard products through chromatographic analysis to ensure that the quality of the products meets national standards.
