Food Supplements And Plant Extracts
The Supplement and Phytotherapy sector - OTI
The company is specialized in the production of different types of products based on plant extracts such as: Mother Tinctures, Glyceric Macerates, Fluid Extracts, Bach Flowers and Essential Oils.
For the preparation’s purpose of each extract, the officinal plants collected in its balsamic period is used as raw material. The specific part of the plant, or the plant as a whole, is used in accordance with the health guidelines traditionally recognized on a bibliographic basis and by the Ministry of Health.
In order to ensure and maintain a high quality standard, all the raw materials that enter the OTI production departments come from confirmed suppliers: their reliability in providing continuously and timely high quality vegetable materials for the preparation of high quality medicines has been proven through adequate internal organizational and analytical procedures.
The qualitative parameters of the incoming raw materials and output of finished products are constantly checked by the OTI Quality Control Laboratories equipped with all the appropriate analytical instruments (HPLC, Bulk Gases, Atomic absorption, Spectrometer, IR, etc.) and all the equipment for microbiological controls.
A strength of the production process is the use of automatic latest generation extractors which allow extraction at room temperature (or even lower) thereby avoiding the risk of deterioration of the heat sensitive molecules. This result is obtained thanks to our extractors which can work in decompression and overpressure cycles: in fact even remaining at room temperature, by mechanical effect, the molecules are transported from the vegetal matrix to the liquid phase.
The methodology is standardized and therefore guarantees perfect reproducibility of the entire production process.
All the plant extracts thereby obtained are subjected to adequate analytical controls, carried out by OTI Quality Control Laboratory.
The controls, carried out both during the manufacturing process and on the finished products, guarantee not only the presence of the specific qualitative and quantitative characteristics of each extract but also the absence in the product of contaminating agents and pathogenic micro-organisms.
