Cannabis Testing: Water for HPLC and Sample Prep

Jan 17, 2020

Cannabis Testing: Water for HPLC and Sample Prep
Sartorius's Logo

When analyzing cannabis and CBD products for purity, ultrapure water is the basis for safe and economical analytics, reducing interference and ensuring accurate measurements of cannabinoids and terpenes. The use of high-quality, ultrapure water is important for all daily standard applications in analytic labs, such as preparing stock solutions, buffers, or to dilute samples, but is especially important when performing chromatographic analyzes, such as HPLC, GC-MS or IC.

Water is used heavily for rinsing and dilution of samples to be tested. Furthermore, it is used for the preparation of certified reference materials within the calibration and testing of the instrumentation (GS-MS, HPLC) to evaluate the samples for contamination in the Cannabis testing process.

Our arium® laboratory-grade water purification systems will inspire you with their application-oriented operating designs. The arium systems enable you to perform your workflows faster and more reliably, make your daily lab work easier and ensure long-term economical operation. They can be perfectly integrated into your laboratory environment and easily adapted to your requirements, so they provide ultimate flexibility.

Determination of Cannabis Moisture Content

Determination of Cannabis Moisture Content

Super-fast determination of the moisture content of Cannabis is a crucial indicator of potential microbial contamination. Unlike synthetically produced drugs, the cannabis plant is more susceptible to diseases and contaminants. In particular, poor drying of the plants during drug extraction processes can lead to mold or fungal infestation, which in turn may pose a risk to the health of medical users, particularly those with immunodeficiencies. Properly dried cannabis contains 10 to 12 percent moisture. To avoid moisture contents above 12 percent, which make dried cannabis more prone to mold, you need to precisely determine the moisture content for, example by means of highly accurate, user-friendly moisture analyzers.
