Lab results from Alkemists that certified my "Home Grown" in California! Hoodia.

Results from alchemists test on sample from my HOODIA GORDONII stock

1. Hoodia 1 (HPLC) Conclusion: Chromatogram #2 (test sample) is consistent with chromatographic fingerprint #1 (voucher specimen of Hoodia gordonii). Reference analyte P57 can be detected in the test sample.                                                   

2. Hoodia 1 (Micro) Comments & Conclusions: Yellow line = sample origin @ 10mm, red line = solvent front @ 60mm. Lanes 6, 7 are the test sample Hoodia (1). Lanes 4, 5 are the authenticated reference samples used for comparison. This test sample, Hoodia (1), is consistent with the chromatographic profile of the reference samples of Hoodia gordonii used above & is characteristic of Hoodia gordonii.                                                           

 3. Hoodia 1 (TLC) Comments & Conclusions: This sample is representative of Hoodia gordonii aerial part based on authenticated microscopic references and the consistent characteristic cellular structure of an aerial part as well as the references cited above. The characteristic cellular structures identified in this sample are the fragment of a fiber showing whirled striations seen in micrograph (1) above & in micrograph (2) we see the large thin walled parenchyma with wrinkled cell walls. This test sample, Hoodia (1), is consistent with the microscopic characteristics of the reference samples of Hoodia gordonii used above & is characteristic of Hoodia gordonii.
