Application Note: Rapid and Sensitive Determination of Anthocyanins in Bilberries Using UHPLC
16 May 2016

Bilberry extracts are widely used in nutritional supplements and pharmaceuticals for improving visual acuity and treating circulatory disorders. This note demonstrates the use of a high-resolution silica-based Thermo Scientific Acclaim® RSLC 120 C18 column to separate and detect 15 anthocyanins and five anthocyanidins in 30 minutes, compared to competing methods with run times of 50 minutes or greater.
