Title: Studying Natural Products
Description: The National Cancer Institute's Natural Products Branch at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research is the largest program to collect materials worldwide from marine, plant, and microbial sources so they may be studied for possible medical uses. After chromatography has been performed on a sample, chemically similar materials are combined into flasks, which are then dried by rotary evaporation, transferred into small vials (shown here), and dried by a stream of nitrogen gas.
