Cannabis and Hemp Testing HPLC Solutions 

Liquid chromatography is central to a broad cross-section of cannabis testing applications. It has been used to help characterize the 100+ cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis plant, demonstrating radically different pharmacological mechanisms of action from one to the next. 

Liquid Chromatography for Cannabinoid purification

Whenever highly pure cannabinoids should be produced from Cannabis plants or raw extracts, preparative chromatography is the method of choice. If a batch process is implemented or a continuous process using simulated moving bed chromatography is more effectful always depends on the specific customer´s needs. KNAUER has extensive experiences in customized solutions for both types of applications for the cannabis industry. 

Liquid Chromatography for the Quality Control of Cannabis Products

Analytical HPLC is implemented in numerous ways to help professionals on either side of the cannabis market’s gulf in legitimacy. To ensure a safe product of highest quality, several tests should be carried out. They include cannabinoid profiling, potency testing via quantification of THC (presence/absence of THC), determination of naturally occurring contaminants like mycotoxins and determination of artificial contaminants like pesticides.
