The Hemp Analyzer is a high-performance liquid chromatograph that is a complete turnkey analyzer for quantitative determination of cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinoid content. It includes all required hardware, software, consumables, and analysis workflow to enable the operator to run samples in the shortest possible time. The three included method packages address high sample throughput, enhanced sensitivity, and high resolution. The high throughput method is designed for analysis of CBD and nine other commonly requested cannabinoids in under eight minutes. The high sensitivity method includes THCV in the target analyte list, with an instrument cycle time of under 10 minutes. According to the company, the short analysis time produces the sharpest chromatographic peaks for the best overall sensitivity. The high resolution method presents full baseline resolution for all 11 compounds and an analysis time under 30 minutes. This method is preferred for research purposes or when additional compounds must be added to the analysis in response to new state regulatory requirements.
