Manufacturing

Raw materials used in the production of traditional Chinese medicine, primarily medicinal plants, first go through a purifying process, during which raw materials are selected, cut, rinsed and dried. Processed raw materials then go through a series of extraction processes that involve mixing with solvents, soaking, stewing, drying and grinding. Materials extracted from the plants are then processed into various dosage forms such as capsules, tablets, syrups, tinctures and granules. In the past, many steps in the manufacturing of traditional Chinese medicine were performed manually, with limited assistance from modern production equipment, which resulted in a lack of quality and dosage consistency. In October 2005, the PRC Ministry of Science and Technology provided us with grants to develop a small standardized automation system for the manufacturing of traditional Chinese medicine, which has been completed and is now used in our production.
