How Magical is Your Mushroom? Developing Reliable Tryptamine Analytics
Speaking at an Analytical Cannabis webinar in March 2022, Eric Janusson, PhD, Lead Chemist at Delic Labs presented his talk on tryptamine analysis.
Abstract: Psilocybin mushrooms are at the centre of a new industry. Formally shackled down by government bans and regulations, this botanical and its active compounds are building the foundation for promising medical therapies, particularly in the mental health space. Although, the foundation of any research project is the precise quantification of the compounds under study. And here the literature has not yet found an agreement on the best method to use. We present an overview of the current literature, their contradictions, and shortcomings. We then discuss methods we developed to produce robust, reliable results, without breaking the HPLC.
During this webinar we will discuss:
- Current literature, contradictions and shortcomings for precise quantification of tryptamine compounds.
- Quantification methods developed by Delic Labs to produce robust and reliable results.
