Protocols

USP Dissolution Testing Method (HPLC) for Folic Acid Tablets Using a Monolith Column and UV detection

Folic acid or folate is classified as a B vitamin (B9). Folic acid is synthetically produced, and used in fortified foods and supplements. Folate is converted by humans to dihydrofolate (dihydrofolic acid), tetrahydrofolate (tetrahydrofolic acid), and other derivatives, which have various biological activities.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
