The CSO, CEO and founder of GAAS, Aniko M. Solyom has more than 20 years of comprehensive experience in analytical method development and validation, using a wide variety of analytical techniques. Her expertise is in development and validation of analytical methods with particular emphasis on HPLC, LC-MS applications and bioactivity guided preparative separation of complex mixtures and analysis of biological samples and dietary supplemesnts that she gained working on drug development and contract analysis both in academia and industry. In addition to HPLC technique she has significant experience with atomic absorption spectroscopy, inductively coupled plasma emission spectroscopy, photoacoustic spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy, elemental analysis, mass spectrometry, gas chromatography, GC-MS, LC-MS and NMR. She also has experience conducting absorption, distribution and elimination studies on animals.
She received her BS and MS degrees in organic and analytical chemistry respectively. Dr. Sólyom received her Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the Technical University of Budapest in 1984 where she worked on the application of optical spectroscopic methods for the analysis of metallic glasses. She conducted extensive studies on the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric between 2000 and 2006 as the Director of the Analytical Core of the Arizona Center for Phytomedicine Research (ACPRx). In 2006 she was selected as Horwitz advisor for AOAC International. Horwitz advisors are experts in the dietary supplement industry who can offer advice to individuals and companies who aren't familiar with the various AOAC processes.
She has 33 publications in peer reviewed journals; she has presented 37 posters at national and international meetings and authored a patent (Chen, G.J., Jolad, S.D., Lantz, R.C., Sólyom, A.M., Timmermann, B.N.: Anti-inflammatory Activity of Turmeric Oil Mixture. U.S. Patent No: 2005123632).
