Determination of Glucosamine via Polarimetry
Glucosamine is used as a joint supplement for the treatment of arthralgia and osteoarthritis. In order to have high-quality products the optical rotation of glucosamine needs to be analyzed via polarimetry.
Polarimetric Quality Control of Essential Oils
The optical rotation of essential oils is a quickly measured, easily generated polarimetric quality parameter. Moreover, it helps to differentiate between different essential oils and to analyze the purity of essential oils.
Quality Control of Dextran Solutions
Dextran has a wide range of clinical applications such as reducing blood viscosity, separating red blood cells, and providing parenteral nutrition. It can easily be controlled by optical rotation measurement.
Quality Control of Glucose Infusions
Glucose infusions are widely used in clinical applications as they deliver energy to the human body. Their quality can quickly be determined by polarimetric measurements.
Sweeteners are often used in diet products. MCP polarimeters can be used to determine the quality of optically active sweeteners like stevia. The specific and optical rotation of single, purified steviol glycosides, extracted from stevia plants, can also b
