Why Phytax?

History

Phytax Ltd. was established as an analyses laboratory in 1998 in response to a need for the trustworthy assessment of the quality of traditional Asian remedies (especially herbs of traditional Chinese medicines TCM) based on Western standards.

Phytax Ltd. was established as an analyses laboratory in 1998 in response to a need for the trustworthy assessment of the quality of traditional Asian remedies (especially herbs of traditional Chinese medicines TCM) based on Western standards.

Asian Certificates of Analysis at that time (and unfortunately also today) often fail to meet Western regulatory and scientific standards.

However not only were the Certificates of Analysis problematic, but also the Asian products (medicinal herbs) themselves were/are often of poor quality: in addition to false botanical identity, there were also shortcomings with respect to their content and purity (heavy metals, pesticides, aflatoxins, exposure to pathogens).

Phytax employs experts from the fields of medicine, botany, phytochemistry, pharmacology, microbiology, and Chinese language and writing.

Phytax today possesses a unique know-how in the West regarding the quality control of TCM products, either as dried plants or as extracts (dry or liquid).

Today Phytax customers not only include companies that wish to maintain a high quality standard for their Asian and European medicinal herbs, teas, spices and foods of plant origin, but also Government Authorities and Academic institutions, both within and outside Switzerland.

The enforcement of the official requirements regarding the quality of food and medicinal herbs in both Switzerland and Europe is still insufficient to ensure the blanket quality of products available on the market. Phytax was established to help take responsibility for this problem and to ensure reliable, high quality natural products.

One can rely on a Phytax Certificate of Analysis.
