> Quality Assurance
Herbs give more emphasis on checking the quality of natural herbs and herbs supplements to ensure the supply of
only high quality product in the market. Once a product has been produced,
it undergoes a series of tests to assure consistency, quality and potency.
The finished product is audited by inspector for bulk weight, liquid volume,
plate count, bottle sealing and legible lot number, sample are then given to
the Quality assurance labs, so that scientists can complete testing
according to finished product specification.
After all the processes have been completed and the product has passed the
inspection QA will release the product. The batch record and a sample of the
finished product are retained for future reference. If a customer has a
question about a product QA can refer to the retention sample of the lot in
The following list shows a few of the tests we conduct in our premises as
well as in association with the other laboratories :-
- Ash Testing - is simply a measure of the mineral content. The
higher the ash count, the more minerals are present in the flour. To
calculate ash count, the miller puts a sample into a container (called
an ash muffle), and incinerates it in a very hot oven to burn off all
the organic material, until all that remains is the mineral residue.
This residue (or ash) is then weighed in relation to the original sample
weight to calculate the ash count for that sample. Ash testing
originated is a means of measuring the quality of the milling process.
- Finished Product Auditing Once a product has been
produced, each lot is statistically sampled and finally the product is
audited by Quality assurance inspectors for bulk weight, Liquid volume
bottle count, Bottle sealing and legible lot number samples are then
given to QA labs so that scientists can complete testing according to
finished product specifications.
Testing - Mother Herbs ensures the quality and purity of their
herbs and natural herbs supplements by utilizing an instrument called a bactometer. It detects the
growth of an organism by the change of electronic signal passed through
- E.coli Testing The danger of the E.coli bacteria are
well known. In large enough quantities, these bacteria can be fatal.
Mother Herbs test sometimes raw material for the presence of E.coli
using specially designed E.coli plate that contain an indicator that
turn the bacteria blue. This allows for visual identification of the
bacteria and of course rejection of that particular lot of raw material
- Salmonella Testing Mother Herbs test for Salmonella
Sp. in herb raw material and product using what is called a 1-2 test.
This test allows us to obtain what is called result much more quickly
than standard culture method.
- Mold And Yeast Testing Mother Herbs regularly perform
yeast and mold count using the bactometer. Its special module contain
the element a mold or yeast would need to sustain life if it were
present when the organism grows, it is detected on the bactometer.
Performance Liquid Chromatography This extremely sensitive
computerized tool allow Mother Herbs to analyze the ingredient in the
mixture. Mother Herbs sometimes use HPLC to examine the purity and
potency of raw materials mostly in economically feasible raw materials.
- Gas Chromatography (GC) -By using GC Mother Herbs can
separate complete mixture of compound into individual component. A
sample of a mixture is placed in the GC machine where it is heated and
become gas. As the gas travels through a tube in the machine the
individual element in the mixture separate and attach a special coating
in the tube. These separated elements enter a detection unit called a
Research and Analysis
Herbs is closely associated with one of the best laboratories in India like
Sri Ram Institute of Industrial Research (Delhi & Bangalore), S.G.S
(Gurgaon), Reliable Labs (Mumbai)
and we timely keep on sending our
sample for research and analysis to ensure high quality products. On clients
request all our herbs and natural materials can be irradiated with Gamma
Radiation through Sri Ram of Industrial Research, Delhi. This ensures
sterilized raw material for highly sensitive Pharmaceutical and Ayurveda
These laboratories are committed to develop, innovate, analyze and apply
technology for products and processes and are the pioneers in providing
Inspection, Testing and Certification services to the Industries across
