Draco's 9 Steps of production traceability from seed to drum
The liquid menstruum that is created by full spectrum extraction of botanical materials undergoes flash sanitization for assurance of purity and low microbiological plate counts.
High Temperature/Short Time (HTST) Sanitization
The menstruum is heated to 72 °C for approx. 15 seconds.
Ultra-High Temperature (UHT) Sanitization
The menstruum is heated to 130-150 °C for 0.5-1.0 second.
Quality Control & Testing
Extensive analytical testing is performed on each extract produced at Draco. Testing includes HPLC, High Density HPTLC, gas chromatography, and organileptic testing, microscopy analysis, microbioligical plate counts to ensure correct potency of marker compounds and a full spectrum of natural botanical constituents.
Every outgoing lot of finished Draco botanical extract is accompanied by an official Certificate of Assurance (C of A), assuring that the extract is traceable back to the original plant material, that all processes were within strict tolerance ranges, and that the product contains all specified chemical markers and constituents.
