The only authorized support unit in the meeting.
"How to establish a quality standard system for Chinese medicine that meets the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine and can be recognized by the international community is the key to realizing the modernization of Chinese medicine and entering the international market." Professor Qian Zhongzhi, chief scientist of the National Pharmacopoeia Commission, believes that the modernization of Chinese medicine will inevitably Connected with technology.
“After the scientific investigation on the source of ginseng germplasm, Zixin Pharmaceutical has made great achievements in the genetic testing, variety classification and seed screening of ginseng.” Guo Chunsheng, the chief consultant of Zixin Pharmaceutical, said that through various efforts Zixin Pharmaceutical has seized the commanding heights of scientific ginseng and provided strong technical support for the development of ISO/TC249 ginseng international standards.
"Now many countries in the world are developing ginseng industry, which requires the development of international standards." As an expert at the meeting, Professor Qian Zhongzhi, the chief scientist of the National Pharmacopoeia Commission, believes that the current issue of ginseng international standards, the issue of pesticide residues is worthy of attention, and needs to use technology. Power to complete industrial upgrading.
It is understood that Professor Qian Zhongzhi has been engaged in the research and management of quality control and quality standards of traditional Chinese medicine for a long time. He has led the establishment of a quality standard system that conforms to the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine, and establishes a comprehensive reflection of the safety, effectiveness and uniformity of quality of traditional Chinese medicine. The concept of characteristic Chinese medicine quality control mode.
Professor Qian Zhongzhi believes that in terms of scientific and technological ginseng, Jilin Province enterprises represented by Zixin Pharmaceutical have taken outstanding achievements and brought more confidence to the formulation of Chinese ginseng internationalization standards.
“Zixin Pharmaceutical has carried out systematic scientific research on ginseng from resources to genes, and has in-depth exploration at the genome level to carry out the breeding and planting of excellent ginseng varieties.” Guo Chunsheng told reporters that this research aims to solve the ginseng focus through scientific and technological means. Planting, disease prevention and other issues will make ginseng a high-quality, stress-resistant and environmentally friendly green Chinese medicine, providing strong scientific and technological support for the development of China's ginseng industry.
In fact, Zixin Pharmaceutical has been pursuing the pursuit of quality ginseng and scientific ginseng, and it has become the most shining “tech star” in the eighth plenary session of ISO/TC249.
Let us turn the time indicator back to 2010, Zixin Pharmaceutical adjusts the industrial structure, enters the ginseng industry, and takes the ginseng industry as the vanguard of the company's future development.

In August 2014, the Chinese Medicine Resource Center of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, together with 6 family members and nearly 10 research institutes, established the “Ginseng International Standard Technology Alliance” and actively participated in the research and formulation of ginseng international standards. He served as the first executive director unit and assumed the work of the alliance secretariat. In 2015, Zixin Pharmaceuticals established the secretariat of the International Standards and Technology Alliance of Ginseng, located in Beijing, and actively carried out various related work.
Li Daning, honorary director of the Chinese Medicine Association for the Testing and Certification of Chinese Herbal Medicine, believes that the establishment of the ginseng international standards alliance guided by the government, enterprise participation and science and technology is to improve the ability of China to develop ginseng international standards under the ISO/TC249 framework. Organize and promote related proposals to promote the development of international standards. Through the development of related work in the alliance, it will also regulate the research and production of ginseng in China and improve the development level of China's ginseng industry.
The development of ginseng industry depends to a large extent on the innovation and advancement of ginseng basic research and applied research.
Germany PHYTOCHEM company is committed to biomedical research, the company's general manager Hans Rausch told reporters that Zixin Pharmaceutical is beyond the imagination in the depth of ginseng basic research, and the results achieved are also very dazzling.
Over the years, Zixin Pharmaceutical has achieved breakthrough results in the fields of ginseng basic research, ginseng health food research, ginseng new resource food development and ginseng planting related technology research.
At the 8th plenary meeting of ISO/TC249, the participants or the handbook of Zixin Pharmaceutical's “Tao Shuren Dezhi Brewing” business manual, to understand the industrial road of Zixin Pharmaceutical, or stand in Zixin Pharmaceutical Before the booth, directly experience the ginseng products of Zixin Pharmaceutical.

So, why is the ginseng product of Zixin Pharmaceutical so sought after?
On June 5, Guo Chunsheng, the chief consultant of Zixin Pharmaceutical, explained to the reporter why the quality of Zixin ginseng products is so good: firstly, the selection of excellent, planting science, cultivation excellence, harvesting and processing time are scientific and effective; secondly, in custody In the process of operation, modern logistics and warehousing facilities are used to ensure that the quality of ginseng is not affected during the transaction. Finally, in the future, the ginseng industry will develop towards diversification. Whether it is production or research and development, Zixin Pharmaceutical's products are full of technological elements.
"Industry, Research and Research" innovation development
The lens was replayed from 2009, and Zixin Pharmaceutical was on the road of “Technology Ginseng”.
In 2010, Zixin Pharmaceutical entered the ginseng industry. In April 2010, the Chinese ginseng genome project was officially launched, marking the official launch and full implementation of ginseng genome research and development.
In November of the same year, Zixin Pharmaceutical and the Tonghua Municipal Government, the Changchun Branch of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Beijing Genomics Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement for ginseng industry to officially launch the ginseng genome project. At the end of February 2011, the ginseng genome map was successfully drawn. In March of the same year, the ginseng genome map of China was officially released.
Li Daning, honorary director of the Chinese Medicine Association for the Testing and Certification of Chinese Herbal Medicine, believes that the successful mapping of the ginseng genome map is an important achievement of Zixin Pharmaceutical's commitment to pragmatic cooperation with scientific research units and the development of “production, study and research”. . Through the sequencing of ginseng genome, the cultivation, cultivation and processing of ginseng are guided, and Zixin ginseng is made into quality ginseng and scientific ginseng.
“Zixin Pharmaceutical has paid more attention to the control of ginseng source while increasing investment in science and technology.” Guo Chunsheng, the chief consultant of Zixin Pharmaceutical, told reporters that since 2012, Zixin Pharmaceutical has invested nearly 100 million yuan and has launched the country many times.
