Botanical garden

Amino Up Chemical has established an on-site botanical garden where approximately 150 species of plants, specially herbal plants, are cultivated. We examine these plants for crude drug effects, and investigate the effects and use of their extracts. We then feed the necessary data back into our product development database.
