A novel isolation strategy, online hyphenation of ultrasonic extraction, Sephadex LH‐20 column chromatography combined with high‐speed countercurrent chromatography, was developed for pure compounds extraction and purification. Andrographolide from Andrographis paniculata was achieved only in a single step purification protocol via the present strategy. The crude powder was ultrasonic extracted and extraction was pumped into Sephadex LH‐20 column directly to cut the nontarget fractions followed by the second‐dimensional high‐speed countercurrent chromatography, hyphenated by a six‐port valve equipped at the post‐end of Sephadex LH‐20 column, for the final purification. The results yielded andrographolide with the amount of 1.02 mg and a purity of 98.5% in a single step, indicating that the present method is effective to harvest target compound from medicinal plant.
