Cannabis Extraction Equipment
Proper extraction is a critical step before cannabis samples can be tested for potency or for a range of contaminants including pesticides, residual solvents, heavy metals, moisture, and microbes.
For raw sample processing, grinders and mills of various sizes are available. These units are specifically designed for cryogenic grinding and pulverizing of tough and/or temperature sensitive samples in a grinding vial immersed in liquid nitrogen.
High-vacuum pumping units are employed in the distillation process, making it possible to isolate specific cannabinoids such as THC or CBD.
Headspace samplers make it possible for even the most chemically active compounds to be analyzed using a GC system, helping to eliminate the dead volume and absorption effects, typical of sample loops and transfer lines, which can also impede their detection at very low levels.
The medicinal and recreational cannabis industries are growing at significant rates, estimated to reach up to 44 billion by 2020. Advances in analytical testing technologies and services are helping to drive the industry and accelerate progress in drug development and medicine as well as regulatory guidance.
Analytical instrumentation providers are helping cannabis testing laboratories with sample preparation protocols, method development, and establishing good laboratory practices (GLP) to ensure existing state and federal food safety laws are met or exceeded.
