Trichome Analytical

Trichome Analytical

"We use Shimadzu chromatography and mass spec instruments for a whole range of tests on cannabis and cannabis products. Their instruments are critical in provided accurate results to our clients. We were impressed with the method packages available through Shimadzu specific to cannabis matrices. They have a strong presence in the cannabis space and a good reputation in analytical instruments. We set up a full-service cannabis lab using Shimadzu instruments in a relatively short amount of time. It would not have been possible without Shimadzu’s support in answering questions and providing support along the way. Their instrumentation and support have been great for our business and I would recommend Shimadzu to anyone."
