Natural Products

Because of the increasing interest in the natural active principles MIR opened the Natural Products unit (NP). The innovative cold extraction process, Naviglio EstrattoreĀ®, and lyophilizers with high capacity allow NP to offer several applications, from extraction to lyophilization of multiple vegetable matrices.

The rapidity, the low-temperature extraction and the high efficiency of the extraction process guarantee the total recovery of not degraded active principles contained in medicinal plants. The extraction can be made both on a small and medium scale.
