As more states legalize marijuana for medical and recreational use, consumer safety has become a growing concern. Particularly when it comes to pesticides. Although pesticides are introduced into the process for crop management, adopting a reliable, rapid and cost effective procedure for screening marijuana products destined for a consumer market is critical.
Pesticide extractions and analysis have long been in place for the food and environmental industries. Tapping into these methodologies, the use of Pressurized Liquid Extraction (PLE) can be fitted to deliver a one step extraction and clean-up process for rapid GC/MS-MS analysis of potency and a wide array of pesticides.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss the pressurized liquid extraction technique, and its importance to high-throughput, consistent, reproducible pesticide and potency analysis.
