|Plant Extract Library project - well on track
2014 has been a very productive year for the Plant Extract Library. Some 1200 different plant materials have been harvested and partially processed into extracts. In the coming weeks, at least new 500 additions will be made to the collection. Ultimately, the Plant Extract Library will consist of at least 2240 extracts which can be offered to different parties in the agrochemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry, screening the extracts for valuable metabolites.
Specs, with over a quarter of a century of experience in processing and handling chemical compounds for the life sciences industry, is coordinating the entire logistics chain in this process, starting from storage of the extracts at -80 degrees C to plating, handling and distribution, thus taking up a key position in this innovative project. The entire process is explained in this presentation on YouTube (in Dutch).
