Services



The vast experience of the Laboratory of Pharmacognosy in the research area of natural compounds, gives the know-how to conduct services of method development, validation and sample analyses of the metabolic profiles of matrices and products of natural origin, aquatic or terrestrial, namely:
Determination of phenolic compounds by HPLC-DAD;
Determination of organic acids by HPLC-UV;
Determination of amino acids by HPLC-UV;
Determination of alkaloids by GC-FID and HPLC-DAD;
Determination of carotenoids by HPLC-DAD;
Determination of fatty acids by GC-FID;
Determination of phytosterols by HPLC-UV;
Determination of volatile compounds by GC-FID and GC-MS;
Evaluation of several biological activities in several matrices and in isolated compounds.


Examples of the offered services:
  • Collaboration as CRO (contract research organization) with other laboratories in research projects;

  • Determination of the authenticity of products by means of taxonomy biomarkers, requested by food supplement companies;
  • Determination of the safety of natural origin products by means of quantification of the safety limits of toxicology of metabolites, requested by companies that market products of natural origin;
  • Determination and quantification of metabolites for the nutritional valorization of natural matrices and products of natural origin, requested by food supplement companies and others;
  • Collaboration with “Direcção Regional de Agricultura de Entre Douro e Minho” in research projects for the valorization of autochthonous species from “Entre Douro e Minho” region;
  • Determination of the genuineness of products available in the Portuguese market, requested by "Instituto do Consumidor”;
  • Collaboration with “Aquaporins and Ingredients, S.L.” enterprise in the analysis of phenolic acids and their bioactivity in foods of vegetal origin;
  • Elaboration of technical-scientific opinions in judicial conflicts involving products of natural origin.
