HPLC-Columns for Cannabis Testing Solutions

 

Shimadzu's Cannabis Testing Solutions cover a broad range of applications, from potency testing to pesticide screening. We supply the instruments, methods and experience necessary to get you up and running quickly. Part of these solutions are dedicated Columns & Consumables matching the applications´ needs.

 

NexLeaf, a superficially porous series of HPLC columns engineered to achieve ultimate resolution and sensitivity in the most challenging cannabis matrixes. Each NexLeaf column has both analytical and guard columns available.

 
 

Shim-pack XR-ODS II reduces the particle size of the packing material to an optimum level and unifies the particle diameter to help suppress flow resistance and ensure excellent stability. By combining Shim-pack XR-ODS II with Prominence UFLC or Nexera, high-resolution and high-sensitivity detection of minute components can be achieved in impurity analysis.

 
 

NexLeaf CBX for Potency

Designed for the best separations of cannabinoids allowing for accurate potency determination of each analyte

Shim-pack XR-ODS II for High Resolution Analysis

A high-separation analysis column with an increased pressure tolerance, which can also be used for high-temperature analysis

NexLeaf for Pesticides

Provides the ultimate separation for all of your multi-residue pesticide analysis needs

 
 
 
 
 
 

Potency Testing

QC testing for cannabinoids is essential for the accurate labeling of cannabis and hemp products. The term "potency" is normally reserved for the quantitation of the major cannabinoids, namely THCA, THC, CBD and CBN. HPLC has emerged as the gold standard for potency determinations, as separation and detection of the cannabinoids is done without causing any decomposition of the naturally abundant THCA. This compound undergoes decarboxylation to THC under the iinfluence of heat and light. Therefore GC determinations offer only a sum-parameter of THCA and THC.
Shimadzu specifically engineered a superficially porous liquid chromatography analytical and guard column for the analysis of cannabinoids. Ensure to ultimate resolution and sensitivity for cannabis analysis by using NexLeaf or Shim-pack XR-ODS columns.

Pesticide analysis

Pesticides are used in commercial cannabis grow operations to kill insects and spiders that thrive on cannabis plants. Pesticides can be carcinogenic and mutagenic, causing serious harm to cannabis consumers.

Shimadzu specifically engineered a superficially porous liquid chromatography analytical and guard column for the analysis of pesticides in cannabis. Ensure the ultimate resolution and sensitivity for pesticide analysis in cannabis by using NexLeaf columns.
