Event Overview:

Better analytical results begin with better sample preparation. Due to the complex nature of the cannabis plant, a complete and reliable analysis can be difficult to achieve. The first step to any analysis is to ensure a complete digestion or extraction in the sample preparation. In this webcast, you will learn techniques and tools for fast, efficient, and reproducible sample preparation for all your LC–MS, GC–MS, and ICP–MS analyses of cannabis and hemp samples. Discussions on the methods and techniques for extraction of pesticides and THC from plant material, and microwave digestion of mixed samples including flower, edibles, lotions, extracts, and oils will be addressed. In addition, valuable sample handling techniques for achieving more consistent and homogenous sampling and comparisons between classic and automated techniques and low and high throughput options will be covered.

Key Learning Objectives:

  •     Learn simple and repeatable sample preparation techniques for cannabis and hemp products

  •     Understand the importance of temperature controlled potency and pesticide extractions through filtration and cooling

  •     Best practices for single batch microwave digestion of all cannabis and hemp samples including flower, foods, lotions, oils, and extracts
