Camag believe identification of medicinal plants is traditionally one of the premier fields of application for TLC. When quality and safety became an issue, methods for identification of herbal drugs by TLC fingerprint were readily implemented into pharmacopoeias all over the world. Recently the USP, the European Pharmacopoeia, and the Chinese Pharmacopoeia have revised their general TLC method section in order to keep up with the state of the art of the technique.

Methods for identification of some of the most important herbal drugs are available from Camag free of charge. Check for example application notes for identification of different
Ginseng species:

- Asian Ginseng (Panax ginseng)
