Slide 2

Purpose To test the characteristics of Coenzyme Q10 dietary supplements utilizing explanatory strategies.

Slide 3

What is Coenzyme Q 10? Normally happening compound found in life forms. Utilized for an assortment of signs strikingly cardiovascular sicknesses.

Slide 4

Forms/Dosage GNC/FoodLion both 10 mg containers GNC is in a case frame FoodLion is in delicate gel shape

Slide 5

Testing Methods Weight variety Disintegration HPLC Assay

Slide 6

Weight variety Tests the variety in weight of cases Tests the deviation from the normal Tests the net fill of delicate gel (FoodLion) Tests the heaviness of the cases (GNC)

Slide 7

Disintegration Tests the solvency in a domain expected to emulate that of the stomach Used 6 cases in sodium acetic acid derivation cradle 37 o C +/ - 2 o C The point of confinement was 45min

Slide 8

HPLC Assay Determine centralization of analyte inside an example Measures it by light retention Analyzed 3 cases for every parcel

Slide 9

HPLC Setup Used a wavelength of 275nm Flow Rate 1ml/min Column 150mm x 4.6mm Altima C18 3  Mobile Phase (25:75) Hexanes:Methanol Injection volume of 20 ul

Slide 10

Sample Chromatogram

Slide 11

Sample Preparation – Soft gels Cut open the shell utilizing forceps and a surgical tool over a pipe in a 100ml volumetric flagon Wash the funnel,forceps and the surgical tool into the 100ml carafe with 20ml of hexanes Sonicate for 5 min and weakened to volume with methanol Then sonicate again for 5 min

Slide 12

Sample Prep. (cont.) Pipetted 2ml of the example into a 50ml volumetric carafe and weakened with methanol Filled a HPLC vial 1/2 to 3/4 full

Slide 13

Data from FoodLion Weight Variation

Slide 14

Data From GNC Weight Variation

Slide 15

Disintegration of FoodLion Brand

Slide 16

Disintegration of GNC Brand

Slide 17

Assay of FoodLion Soft gels

Slide 18

Assay of GNC containers

Slide 19

Conclusions Weight varieties inside brands reliable Disintegrations inside brands predictable Assay would demonstrate fluctuation inside the part and from parcel to part Preliminary information proposes that FoodLion would be a superior decision Costs less $10 versus $17 100 cases versus 90 case in container Less inconstancy
