HPTLC is the only single test that allows for 100% botanical ingredient identification.
HPTLC is the primary chemical test for identification of all pharmacopoeia monographs on botanicals (including USP)
What is HPTLC?
High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) is not the conventional TLC of the past, but is a modern technique involving sophisticated instrumentation, standardized and documented procedures, as well as validated methods. This allows the user to achieve reproducible results in a cGMP environment, and its proper implementation means that WHEN your lab is inspected by the FDA it can meet the requirements of the 100% ID rule!

Other techniques can address identification only in part. They either are limited to plant parts (microscopy), have difficulties with natural variability of botanical materials (IR techniques), or focus on quantitative comparison of separated markers (HPLC). All other techniques lack the versatility and flexibility of HPTLC for the analysis of botanicals. HPTLC is the ONLY single technique that offers a generally applicable approach to compliance with the FDA requirement of 100% botanical identification.
