Summary of "Advanced analysis of nutraceuticals."

In this article, we present a review work on different nutraceuticals found in natural matrices together with the analytical techniques used to identify and/or quantify them with special emphasis in the period January 2005-May 2010. The work is distributed according to the different families of nutraceuticals (lipids, vitamins, proteins, glycosides, phenolic compounds, etc.) discussing the analytical techniques employed for their determination (separation, spectroscopic, hyphenated techniques, etc.). Information about the claimed health promoting effects of the different families of nutraceuticals is also provided together with data on the natural matrices in which they can be found (e.g., fruits, vegetables, plants, microalgae, cereals, milk, etc.).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Advanced technology that is costly, requires highly skilled personnel, and is unique in its particular application. Includes innovative, specialized medical/surgical procedures as well as advanced diagnostic and therapeutic equipment.

A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

The use of sophisticated methods and equipment to treat cardiopulmonary arrest. Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) includes the use of specialized equipment to maintain the airway, early defibrillation and pharmacological therapy.

Analysis based on the mathematical function first formulated by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier in 1807. The function, known as the Fourier transform, describes the sinusoidal pattern of any fluctuating pattern in the physical world in terms of its amplitude and its phase. It has broad applications in biomedicine, e.g., analysis of the x-ray crystallography data pivotal in identifying the double helical nature of DNA and in analysis of other molecules, including viruses, and the modified back-projection algorithm universally used in computerized tomography imaging, etc. (From Segen, The Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

The simultaneous analysis, on a microchip, of multiple samples or targets arranged in an array format.
