Throughout history, valuable therapeutic ingredients have always been derived from plants. Today, natural compounds play an increasingly important role in many areas of research and development. Fractionation and separation of samples obtained from nature remain time-consuming, tedious and extremely expensive even though the assays for testing these samples have become faster and more cost-effective due to advanced high-throughput screening processes. Processing natural product extracts becomes a major bottleneck, constricting the pace of drug discovery. To ensure that the separation is both reproducible and reliable, it would therefore be your benefit to have an automated process in place for natural compound purification.
