Sun Ten Laboratories

Sun Ten Laboratories USA has the primary goal of giving Chinese medicine practitioners in the US access to the high-quality products produced by our factory in Taiwan.

Here in the US we aim to continue the legacy of Sun Ten in Taiwan which emphasizes customer service, education and research.

For nearly seven decades, Sun Ten has produced the highest quality herb extracts for more than 20 countries including the United States, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Switzerland, Germany and England.

Sun Ten continues to meet the unique specifications mandated by each government, ensuring product safety and quality for herbal products.

Producing the highest quality herbs starts with the best source herbs, but also requires a manufacturing process that gets the most out the source materials. Sun Ten is a leading manufacturer of Chinese herb formula and single herb products. As the oldest herb granule production company in Taiwan, Sun Ten has the experience, resources and scientific infrastructure to manufacture products that meet the detailed specifications required to meet the standards of the various countries to which they export and the private label companies for whom they product products.

This high standard of production and quality assurance has allowed Sun Ten's herbs to be chosen by several universities in both the East and the West when conducting scientific clinical and research studies using Chinese herb extracts.

Eleven Quality Control tests are routinely executed to ensure the safety and quality of Sun Ten's products. Each batch is approved by the Head of Quality Assurance to insure that Sun Ten's products meet international safety and quality standards. Only then is a Certificate of Analysis issued for each production batch.

About Our Company

Sun Ten Pharmaceutical Company Ltd. was founded by Dr. Hong-yen Hsu in Taipei, Taiwan in 1946. As a young man, Dr. Hsu studied in Japan, where he earned a doctorate in pharmacognosy (the branch of pharmacology concerned with crudedrugs of plant and animal origin). After returning home to his native Taiwan, he and his pharmacist-wife, Ruth Lin Run Hsu, established the Sun Ten Pharmaceutical Company, the first company in Taiwan to produce concentrated granules for the Chinese medicine community.

In the decades that followed, Dr. Hsu played an increasingly important scientific and educational role in the Chinese medicine world of Taiwan. He served as the country's first director of the Drug Control and Health Administration, a position equivalent to the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration in the United States.

His writings, lectures, research and manufacturing operations were all guided by one central belief: that Eastern and Western medicine could work in partnership for the benefit of humanity. At Sun Ten, this conviction led to the merging of time tested traditions and new technologies, such as the development of the concentrated granule form of centuries-old Chinese herbal formulas.

Dr. Hsu championed the highest standards in safety, cleanliness, operating procedures and quality control and these were incorporated at all of Sun Ten manufacturing facilities. The Taiwanese government recognized these exemplary standards when it presented Sun Ten with the first GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) recognition ever given a manufacturer of Chinese herbal medicine.

In 1975, Sun Ten began exporting to Japan and was the first herb extract manufacturer in Taiwan whose products qualified for reimbursement through the Japanese Health Insurance Plan.

Sun Ten began operations in the United States by opening a facility in Irvine California in 1991.

In 1996, the Malaysian Drug Control Administration issued an import drug license to Sun Ten products. With establishment of Sun Ten Pharmaceutical MFG (M) SDN BHD in Malaysia, Sun Ten entered the Malaysian and Singaporean markets.

In 2013, Sun Ten received the highest-ranking GMP certification (A1 TGA PIC/S) from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. This world-class manufacturing standard is comparable to that required of manufacturers of western pharmaceuticals.

Title: Predicting and Avoiding Drug Herb Interactions

 

By Dr. Greg Sperber

 

We may not be able to predict all drug-herb interactions, but we can determine potentials for interactions. This seminar examines how to approach these potential drug-herb interactions. A discussion of basic pharmacology, including the ADME scheme (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination) and the therapeutic index, form the foundation of this understanding. The participant will leave with real skills to assess potential interactions and the ability to determine which are important, which aren’t, and which may be in the future. In addition, the current state of drug-herb interaction research will be introduced.

Course Goals

  1. Understand how drugs and herbs interact
  2. Identify the most common pharmacological reasons drugs and herbs interact
  3. Identify future directions of Drug-herb interaction research
  4. Create protocols to avoid interactions

 

This seminar is based on Greg's book published by Blue Poppy: Integrative Pharmacology, Combining modern pharmacology and Chinese medicine written with Bob Flaws.

 

Dr. Greg Sperber is author of Playing the Game, A Step-by-Step Approach to Accepting Insurance as an Acupuncturist as well as Integrated Pharmacology, Combining Modern Pharmacology with Chinese Medicine both published by Blue Poppy. He received a masters and doctor of acupuncture and Oriental medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, San Diego, a medical degree from Flinders University of South Australia, and a master of business administration from National University. He has been a past president of the California State Oriental Medical Association and has taught in masters and doctoral programs at various schools in Southern California. He was the Dean of the College of Eastern Medicine at Southern California University of Health Sciences, and is currently the Vice Provost at Bastyr University California.

 

The Five Elements of Acupuncture Medical Ethics

By Dr. Greg Sperber

 

This course will look at basic medical ethics and how they apply to Acupuncture and Oriental Medical practices. It will cover the five basic principles/areas every practitioner should know. It then goes on to explore fundamental medical ethics including looking at the works of Hippocrates and Sun Si Miao and discussing the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment as well as NCCAOM’s Code of Ethics. And finally, there will be a discussion of real world ethical issues that practitioners need to deal with in their everyday interactions with patients. The goal of this course is to give a basic theoretical background to medical ethics and then make them relevant to one’s practices.

Course Goals

  1. To understand basic terms used in ethics and the sub-domain of ethics known as professional ethics
  2. Understand the basic concepts of medical ethics
  3. Explore historical medical ethics documents such as the Hippocratic Corpus and Sun Si Miao’s On the Absolute Sincerity of Great Physicians
  4. Apply these ethical considerations to real world situations
