Quantified Reference Extracts are issued from the research work of the Institut des Substances Végétales (ISV), a private French research institute established since 1979.
ISV was founded by Daniel Jean, PhD, former assistant professor of Pharmacognosy at the University of Clermont-Ferrand, France.
ISV’s research focuses: production processes of herbal products, ethnobotany, pharmacology of plant compounds and development of analytical methods dedicated to herbal product characterization.
In the last 39 years, ISV was granted over 30 patents in Europe, North America, Africa and Japan. Some of ISV’s innovations have been licensed and successfully commercialized by major French and other international companies in herbal medicine, cosmetics, dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals.
