> medicine as potential sources of new drug candidates. Sigma is poised to
> become a leading supplier to these researchers with our innovative products
> for plant biotechnology, our extensive offering of research biochemicals,
> and our kits and reagents for food and nutrient analysis. The Bioactive
> Nutrient Explorer is a bridge that helps scientists identify key components
> of herbs and foodstuffs that may be linked to improved human health or to
