Hemp/ Cannabis analyzer for Potency testing

A simple solution, complete with a column, methods, batches, and reports. Allows for sample submission to reporting in just a few mouse clicks, with easy and minimal workflow for the inexperienced analyst.

LCMS-8060NX for Pesticide and Mycotoxin analysis

In the newly-developed IonFocus unit, the ion transport electrodes reduce sensitivity loss from matrix effects by expelling neutral matrix particles with greater efficiency. Using the LCMS-8060NX's world-class polarity reversal speed (5 ms) and data capture speed (1.5 ms), stable data was obtained even for high-speed analysis of multiple components. The IonFocus unit also introduces ions into the detector more efficiently, improving the signal intensity. Of 100 compounds tested in tea leaves, 96% showed excellent recoveries.

GCMS TQ-8050 NX for Terpene and residual solvents analysis

Ultra-High-Sensitivity Triple Quadrupole GC-MS for Cannabis and Hemp testing. Equipped with a new highly efficient detector and three forms of noise-reduction technologies, the GCMS-TQ8050 NX is capable of performing unprecedented quantitative analyses of ultra-trace amounts, down to the femtogram level.

ICPMS-2030 for heavy metal analysis

The ICPMS-2030 is the first inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer including two assistant functions for analytical method development and diagnosis of analytical results. The newly developed collision cell provides highest sensitivity for analysis of heavy metals in hemp and cannabis samples. The use of the patented environmental friendly mini-torch results in lowest running cost.
