Natures Laboratory Limited
To use Green Technologies to refine propolis while maintaining high flavonoid levels. To develop propolis activity factor and utilise it to tailor product compositions using supramolecular approach.
This 2 year project is with Natures Laboratory Ltd. Nature’s Laboratory research, develop, manufacture and distribute natural health products. Their product range includes herbal medicines, health supplements and skincare products. A key focus for the business is researching the medicinal properties of propolis, a resinous substance collected by bees. This KTP will use Green Technologies to refine propolis by developing a new refining process, while maintaining high flavonoid levels. It will also look at quality and activity variations of the product for quality standards using chromatography techniques.
The lead academic is Professor Anant Paradkar, Professor and Director of the Centre for Pharmaceutical Engineering Science.
This project runs until August18.
