Potency, Terpenes and Residual Solvents: Achieve Rapid 3-in-1 Analysis with Transportable GC-HPMS

Most high-powered testing labs use a combination of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to analyze potency, terpene content, and other contaminants in cannabis samples. While these trusted methods are valuable in the testing lab industry, they aren’t always accessible for a manufacturer, producer, or operator who is looking to refine their product in-house before shipping it out to the lab for high-cost analysis. On the other side, many testing labs are inundated with new samples and are seeking new tools for higher throughput without compromising accuracy.

During this webinar, viewers will gain insight into how G908, a new purpose-built transportable GC-HPMS analyzer, is making 3-in-1 analysis possible for QA/QC testing throughout the cannabis harvesting and production process for lab technicians, growers, extractors, and manufacturers alike.

You will learn:

  • • Rapid, total potency analysis of cannabinoids
  • • Terpene profiling
  • • Rapid, residual solvents analysis
