New Phytochemical Standards

Matthias Nold  Global Product Manager Reference Materials

Plants are an important source for both dietary supplements and traditional medicinal products. Natural high levels of variation in the composition of plants and the increasing problem of adulteration necessitate thorough quality control for plant derived products. An unambiguous identification, as well as accurate quantification of plant constituents, are crucial and require the availability of reliable reference materials.

We are happy to announce our collaboration with PhytoLab, a global leader in the testing of phytochemicals and in manufacturing phytochemical reference materials. By making their phyproof® reference materials available globally through our web portal, we are significantly increasing our offering of reference materials for phytochemicals. Included in this article you will find a list of the initial products (see Materials table below). Many more will be introduced in the coming months.
Please visit for an up-to-date list.

Our entire offering of phytochemical reference materials, including standards and certified reference materials in neat and solution form, and reference materials of plant extracts and essential oils, can be found on our website. All products can be viewed either by compound class or by plant genus.
