Fish Oil EPA Purification (HPLC)

Fish oil EPA purification is very important in pharmaceutical production. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are the two main bioactive components responsible for the health benefits of fish oil. EPA has effects on blood clotting and has been associated with cardiovascular benefits.

The traditional purification process can separate EPA at about 60-80% purity. Some manufacturers use SFC (Supercritical Fluid Extraction) which is very expensive for medium companies. GALAK uses the HPLC method (reverse-phase chromatography) to reach the purification target.
