The Chromatrap Spin Column Homogeniser from Porvair Sciences is gaining considerable interest from organisations preparing Cannabis samples for analysis of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD).
The ratio of THC and CBD is crucial for differentiating medicinal versus recreational cannabis. This ratio is important for taxation authorities, medical regulators and growers alike. Accurate THC/CBD determination relies on effective sample preparation from samples of cannabis leaf, bud and flower.
Offering a gentle, quick and clean alternative to mechanical syringe and needle homogenisation, the Chromatrap Spin Column Homogeniser quickly and efficiently homogenises cells, tissue lysates and plant extracts in a single step. Porvair's unique proprietary bio-shredding Vyon® polymer advantageously reduces lysate viscosity and captures insoluble debris by centrifugation.
Used in conjunction with the Porvair Plant and Seed Genomics microplate the Chromatrap Spin Column Homogeniser provides efficient sample preparation clean-up and Cannabis THC/CBD analysis set-up.
