The present study presents an effective and comprehensive evaluation method for assessing the quality of Bufonis Venenum, based on analysis of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) fingerprints in combination with similarity analysis, hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA), principal component analysis (PCA) and a quantitative analysis multi-components by single marker (QAMS) method. Nine common peaks identified by fingerprint detection results of 10 batches of samples were collected and used for the similarity analysis, HCA, PCA and QAMS analysis. These methods drew a similar conclusion that the quantitative analysis multi-components by single marker (QAMS) method 41 Bufonis Venenum samples were categorized into four main groups by HCA and PCA, and the majority of the samples with similar ingredients were mainly concentrated in Shandong area. When QAMS method was compared with the external standard method (ESM), it was feasible to evaluate the quality of Bufonis Venenum by the values of relative correction factors (RCFs) from cinobufagin (the internal reference) versus arenobufagin, bufalin, bufotalin, resibufogenin and telocinobufogin. In conclusion, these methods were successfully applied to identification of the origin and evaluation the quality of Bufonis Venenum. Therefore, these evaluation methods are promising to be widely applied in the quality control of Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCMs).
