The AHP-Verified BRMs will be available for purchase through the Alkemist e-commerce website along with the existing reference standards offerings.
“Alkemist already sells our own line of Composite Reference Botanical (CRBs) materials as well as the Extrasynthese line of Phytochemical Reference Materials. Having the authority of AHP-Verified BRMs to offer in addition is really exciting,” said Elan Sudberg, CEO of Alkemist Labs.
"AHP is ecstatic to be strategically partnering with Alkemists Labs on bringing AHP-Verified BRMs to a broader segment of the industry,” said AHP Founder and Executive Director Roy Upton. “The need for formally authenticated BRMs is an integral part of GMP compliance. The breadth of our herbarium collections together provides a broad array of most all of the botanicals that companies and labs need to assure their materials conform with independent identification specifications. Our collection of AHP-Verified BRMs and Alkemist CRBs provides industry with two distinctive solutions to their botanical identification challenges."
In addition, Mr. Upton noted: "Not only is Alkemist recognized as an authority in the world of botanical authentication, their primary objective is to help industry find solutions to challenging authentication issues. Like AHP, Alkemists' commitment goes far beyond business, but rather is a commitment to cultivate a high level of integrity in the botanical product sector overall."
“AHP and Alkemist share a deep commitment to furthering the quality of botanical testing as the industry works to prove quality and regulatory compliance, so we’re very pleased about this new alliance,” said Mr. Sudberg. “We anticipate that this distribution agreement is just the first step in working together towards our shared goals and needs of the industry as a whole.”
