Pure ENA & Demineralized Water
To ensure consistent quality in every batch of mother tinctures:
SBL is the only company to use HPTLC System (HIGH PERFORMANCE THIN LAYER CHROMATOGRAPHY) HPTLC is a highly sophisticated equipment used for the qualitative (finger printing) as well as quantitative analysis of drug ingredients i.e. glycosides, alkaloids etc. that are present in tinctures and extracts.
It is also used for developing in-house standardization of mother tinctures, and developing analytical methods for testing MTs.

Electronic infrared moisture analyzer determines the moisture in the herbs.
To maintain the right balance between moisture and menstruum to get the right % of alcohol for optimal extraction of active ingredients.
The graded herbs are macerated in extra neutral alcohol and freshly prepared demineralized water for at least 3 weeks in stainless steel containers. Use of demineralized water ensures complete eradication of metal, minerals, impurities; that eliminates chances of chemical reaction with active ingredient of herb extract. Moreover the use of stainless steel containers prevents any metallic contamination.
The macerated residue is pressed by heavy hydraulic presses with different gadget systems for maintaining exact pressure to get the optimum extraction for therapeutic concentration. Different herbs require different pressures for giving maximum leaching.
