AbstractMany plants and animals and their products are being used as medicine or health food. To protect consumer rights and ensure the pharmaceutical value, it is essential to establish effective methods for authentication and quality control. This review introduces the common chemical and molecular technologies for species identification and quality control. The former includes techniques in chromatography, spectrometry and combined methods. The latter includes DNA fingerprinting and sequencing. Examples of each technique are given and their applications and limitations are evaluated. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
