Since NatuRAPT is active in the field of medicinal plants, natural products, and functional food science, the lab is equipped with advanced instruments for the isolation and identification of biologically active substances from medicinal plants and plant-based foods, and for extract characterization and quality control. A gastrointestinal dialysis model was developed to study the metabolism of natural products and identification of their metabolites. Health effects are evaluated with in vitro and in vivo tests.  Moreover, the research group has both production as well as characterization equipment available for the development and evaluation of novel pharmaceutical formulations and dosage forms.
