BI has a unique understanding of the most pressing challenges impacting the industry and pride ourselves in being one step ahead of market trends, manufacturing technologies, and most importantly, quality advancements. In 1996, BI developed Identilok(R) program, an orthogonal (macroscopy, microscopy, sensory, HPTLC, HPLC) trade-marked ID testing program which is the program the Dietary Supplement GMP’s section on species identification is based on. Identilok(R) was and still is the most advanced and comprehensive authentication program, utilizing the latest technologies; most recently, DNA verification. In 2002, we developed Protexx HP(R) Green Steam(TM) sterilization long before the elimination of Ethylene Oxide and irradiation techniques by the Federal Drug Administration. As the original promoter of kill step validation in the industry, Protexx HP(R) Green Steam(TM) sterilization became the industry’s first species-specific organic sterilization method with a validated kill step.
