Analyzing Mycotoxins in CBD Oil: A Simple Workflow Solution

14 August 2019

A growing need is emerging for testing to detect the presence of mycotoxins in both raw plant materials and finished cannabis products in order to protect consumer health and safety. The analysis of mycotoxins in cannabis oils is particularly challenging because the sample lipids can contribute isobaric matrix interferences in addition to general ion suppression, which can reduce accuracy especially at low levels. This video presents a simple pass-through SPE sample cleanup method applied to lipid-rich CBD oils. The SPE sample cleanup was paired with a rapid LC-MS/MS analysis utilizing a Raptor Biphenyl column.
