Screening or metabolomics

We offer screening of plant extracts by means of Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (UHPLC-MS). Metabolites can further be characterized by ultraviolet/visible (UV/Vis) spectra, or detected by means of fluorescens detection (FLD).


Analysis of specific compounds

Analysis of a range of plant constituents or compounds are performed by chromatographic (UHPLC, HPLC, GC) hyphenated techniques (MS, DAD, FLD, ECD, FID). Examples of compound classes are:

  • Phenolics
    • Flavonoids (chalcones, dihydroflavones, dihydroflavonols, flavones, flavonols, anthocyanins, condensed tannins)
    • Phenolic acids, ketones, aldehydes
  • Carbohydrates
    • Mono- and disaccharides
    • Oligosaccharides
  • Terpenoids
    • Carotenoids
    • Steroids
  • Fatty acids

Analysis are performed (qualitatively and quantitatively) based on several in-house standards.
