Palmyra, WI (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
David Schroeder, a microbiologist at Standard Process Inc., has been accepted into the International Association for the Advancement of High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC). The association collaborates on HPTLC methodology and techniques in plant analysis and other analytical fields. Schroeder gained extensive experience while developing Standard Process’ botanical identification (ID) program. The program was developed over a four-year period as part of Standard Process’ extensive quality assurance program. It is used to identify incoming raw materials from Standard Process’ certified organic farm and other ingredient sources.
Leading HPTLC expert, Eike Reich, Ph.D., director of CAMAG Laboratory in Muttenz, Switzerland, invited Schroeder to join the exclusive association saying, “The board believes that you [Schroeder], as one of the most dedicated practitioners of HPTLC in the United States, will make a valuable contribution to our mission.”
“Being asked to join the HPTLC Association by Dr. Reich is great recognition for the work that David is dedicated to doing,” says Schroeder’s supervisor, Quality Control Manager Sandy Jankowski. “Everyone at Standard Process is very proud of David for achieving this huge accomplishment.”
As a member of the association, Schroeder will collaborate on HPTLC projects with other organization members worldwide. Working alongside members such as Reich and Roy Upton, R.H., DAyu, founder and executive director of the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, Schroeder will choose projects that will assist him in further developing Standard Process’ botanical ID program.
