Analysis of marker components in Chinese Medicine and chromatographic fingerprinting of Chinese Medicine

Since the quality assessment of herbal medicines has always been a challenging task due to the diversity of the multi-components existing in a complicated matrix, the chromatographic fingerprinting method has become one of the most frequently applied approaches, which can provide the whole profile of not only the marker components but also the unknown one. Thus, Thermo Scientific Dionex UltiMate 3000 Ultra-High Pressure Liquid Chromatography System (UPLC) was installed in School of Chinese Medicine for the quantification of marker components in Chinese medicine and chromatographic fingerprinting. Comparing to the conventional HPLC method, UPLC showed many advantages including reduced run time, less solvent consumption and increased peak capacities, this can provide results with higher sensitivity and faster.
