Cannabis: The boom. The benefits. The Importance of testing.
Cannabis Analyzer for Potency
Advanced i-Series Solution Package
A turn-key solution, complete with a column, mobile phase, certified standards, methods, batches, and reports. Allows for sample submission to reporting in just a few mouse clicks, with easy and minimal workflow for the inexperienced analyst.
Many U.S. states have now legalized cannabis for either medical use or “adult” (recreational) use or both, and numerous health benefits have been reported for cannabis, including; general pain reduction, anti-nausea, reduction of seizures, and autism. QC testing for cannabinoids is essential for the accurate labeling of cannabis products in both medical and recreational cannabis markets. Cannabis “potency” is normally reserved for the quantitation of the major cannabinoids, including THCA, THC, CBD, and CBN.

Accurate Results from Real-World Sample Extracts
The following is an overlay of a flower sample with the standards supplied in the High-Sensitivity Method package.
Three Proven Methods:
High Throughput Method
When high sample throughput is paramount – 60 samples per 8 hr. day. Quantitative for 10 cannabinoids (no THCV) in under 8 minutes. Developed in collaboration with commercial testing laboratories.
High Sensitivity Method
When THCV is important, yet with good sample throughput – 48 samples per 8 hr. day. Quantitative for 11 cannabinoids (including THCV) in under 10 minutes. The method provides the sharpest chromatographic peaks and best sensitivity.
High Sensitivity Method
For baseline separation of 11+ components, including THCV. Minimum Resolution = 2.0. 16 samples per 8 hr. day. This is the preferred method when performing research, adding additional compounds, or state regulations change.
