Recently, Fytagoras installed state-of-art equipment for completely controlled and reproducible extraction of plant materials. This allows for extraction of plant material under exactly defined conditions in a reproducible way. All extraction parameters are software controlled and the extraction processes parameters are stored and can be used for identical extraction of other samples.
Such completely controlled and reproducible extraction is essential in research related to active compound identification, studies aimed at effects of plant growth conditions on the secondary metabolite profile, and studies on the bioactivity of plant secondary metabolites for medicinal and other purposes.
The bioactivity screenings of plant secondary metabolite at Fytagoras greatly benefits from the completely controlled and reproducible extraction methods available.
Fytagoras uses the machines in different research projects and makes it available to third parties as a service.
