We offer analysis services from our in-house lab equipped with a high-performance liquid chromatography device. Our analysis is performed with high accuracy, high precision, and in compliance with good laboratory practice.
Our inter-process lab is extremely important in our day to day practices. We control our production process in every step, from biomass for extraction to the finished product.
Our method is validated, and it is a part of our quality management system.
What cannabinoids can be detected in our method?
Accurate quantitation relies on the detector response to the analyte lying within the calibration range.
We offer the following scope of cannabinoids in our analysis report: CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, THC, THCA, CBC, CBCA, CBDV, CBDVA, CBN.
How to send your sample for the HPLC analysis?
When delivering your sample, you need to fill in a form with a request. The samples need to be properly packed, marked in the same way as on the form, and dried. The amount of dry sample material send for the analysis is 50 g max. After the testing of the material, you will receive a Certificate of Analysis stating the amounts of cannabinoids in the sample.
How does an HPLC UV detector work?
A UV visible HPLC detector uses light to analyze samples. By measuring the sample’s absorption of light at a certain wavelength, the analyte can be identified.
HPLC UV VIS detectors operate by passing visible and UV light through a sample in a flow cell, then measuring the absorption of a certain wavelength that passes through the cell. The amount of light absorbed provides information on the properties of the sample.
What are the advantages of HPLC UV?
The advantages of using HPLC for analysis are that it requires a small sample size, testing can be modified depending on the level of quantification needed, and it produces reliable results.
Modern HPLC analysis methods allow for a large number of samples to be analyzed without sacrificing precision and accuracy.
What is a Certificate of Analysis?
A Certificate of Analysis is a document issued by Quality Assurance that confirms that a regulated product meets its product specification. Usualy it contains the actual results obtained from testing performed as part of quality control of an individual batch of a product. CoA is a document used to verify that the products meet specific parameters.
What is validation?
Validation is a procedure that uses a group of tests for evaluating all the assumptions at the base of the analytical method and determine and document the characteristics of the method implementation. It confirms that the method is appropriate for analytic purposes. In other words, validation is a process of proving that the analytical method is appropriate for a certain characteristic purpose.
Validation is a documented process for documentation and the interpretation of the required results to show that the procedure continuously provides results aligned with specification requests or norm requests. Validation of the analytical methods is also a regulatory demand, as well as a professional responsibility. Method validation (or qualification) should follow good manufacturing practice (GMP) requirements to prove that a method is fit for purpose and meets requirements for the intended use.
What are product specifications?
Specifications are a list of test methods, references to analytical procedures, and appropriate acceptance criteria that are numerical limits, ranges, or other criteria for the test described. It establishes the set of criteria to which material should conform to be considered acceptable for its intended use. ‘Conformance to Specification’ means that the material, when tested according to the listed analytical procedures, will meet the listed acceptance criteria.
