Event Overview:

In this latest webinar, LC–MS/MS expert Dr. Avinash Dalmia describes how LC–MS/MS based systems and methods can overcomes the challenges associated with the analysis of pesticides and mycotoxins regulated by Colorado state in hemp with dual ESI and APCI source​.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • List of pesticides and their different action limits in different US states and Canada for hemp/cannabis
  • Analysis of non-polar pesticides using novel LC–MS/MS method with dual ESI and APCI source
  • Ionization mechanism of non-polar pesticides with APCI source in negative ion mode
  • Mitigation of hemp matrix effects with LC and MS method optimization to improve method sensitivity to meet Colorado state action limits for 102 pesticides and five mycotoxins in hemp matrix
  • The rationale for selecting a sample preparation method as automated solvent extraction with good extraction efficiency, lower cost, and higher throughput.
  • Addition of internal standards to improve method accuracy

Who Should Attend:

  • Future or current cannabis lab managers
  • Future or current cannabis lab investors
  • Future or current cannabis testing lab analysts and chemist
  • Entrepreneurs considering starting a cannabis testing lab or branch
