Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and other alternative medicines have a rich history of healing and have been practiced for thousands of years. These treatments rely on analytical testing methods to meet pharmacopoeia standards such as Chinese Pharmacopoeia (ChP) and new, 2020 ChP standards. Due to the chemical diversity of TCM ingredients and finished products, chromatographic techniques are important to the analytical methods needed to meet ChP standards. Here, we’ve collected widely used TCM workflows utilizing the PerkinElmer LC 300 UHPLC system, SimplicityChrom™ software, PerkinElmer Epic™ columns, and a variety of chromatography consumables which enable the safety and quality ingredients in TCM products.
