Analysis of 47 Pesticides in Cannabis for High Throughput Analysis: Traditional dSPE vs. Positive Pressure dSPE in a 96-well Plate
31 October 2016

Cannabis markets are relatively new and vary significantly by state when it comes to the regulation of pesticides and mycotoxins, as well as uniform testing methods for potency. Therefore, quality control methods are necessary to ensure product safety and appropriate cannabinoid profiling. This study examines using a QuEChERS extraction approach coupled with either traditional dSPE clean-up versus UCT’s dSPE clean-up in well-plate format and Hamilton’s MPE2 Positive Pressure Extraction/Evaporation Module for the analysis of 47 pesticides in marijuana.
