Authentication of herbal medicines and products is critical for consumer confidence. This report describes a fingerprinting microarray that was developed during a three year project, to accurately identify important medicinal species and products from around the world.

This RIRDC report is targeted at growers, manufacturers and pharmacological companies who may be interested in validating the identity of their medicinal herbs. Further, the technology outlined in this report may be of relevance to researchers and herb breeders interested in the genetic diversity of their breeding lines.
