Residual solvents are defined as volatile organic chemicals used or produced in the manufacture of pharmacological substances or excipients or in the preparation of pharmaceutical products.
Terpene analysis is used to determine the terpene profile of the sample and the intensity of the aroma itself. Terpene analysis is done on 13 terpenes in GC-FID gas chromatography for a unique characterisation of the superior quality product.
THC analysis in GC-FID, i.e. gas chromatography with flame ionisation detector.
Quantitative tetrahydrocannabinol analyses are prescribed by law and are carried out according to tests in line with national and international quality control, so that the product can be traded internationally and comply with all applicable regulations.
Microbiological analyses are carried out to verify the wholesomeness of the product. The organisms that can be detected are aerobic mesophilic bacteria, yeasts and moulds as well as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterobacteriaceae.
The analysis of cannabinoids is also done in HPLC-UV, i.e. high-performance liquid chromatography, which makes it possible to split two or more compounds and get accurate and timely results. We are well aware that sometimes it can take quite a long time to get this kind of analysis.
The aim is to provide a timely and accurate description of the sample we receive through the determination of 12 cannabinoids, plus the values of CBD, CBG, total THC and the percentage of residual moisture in the sample.
Toxic chemicals persist in the environment and accumulate in the food chain.
Long-term exposure causes a range of harmful effects on the nervous, immune and endocrine systems.
(PAH) are a large group of organic compounds, mostly non-volatile, which in indoor air are found partly in the vapour phase and partly adsorbed on particulate matter.
The main sources are combustion sources.
The most widespread polyphenols in nature are flavonoids, tannins, lignins, anthraquinones and melanins.
They are produced by plants, bacteria, fungi and animals. Very important in pharmacology and food.
Since aflatoxins are known to have genotoxic and carcinogenic properties, consumer exposure through food must be kept as low as possible.
Ochratoxins are a group of structurally related metabolites produced by certain fungi; occasionally they can also be isolated from very common species such as Aspergillus Niger.
