Cannabis Testing Equipment

Cannabis Testing Equipment

Cannabis testing equipment is used to test cannabis compounds for potency and a wide range of contaminants such as pesticides, microbes, heavy metals , moisture and residual solvents. As many cannabis testing laboratories are facing further scrutiny at the state level, methods and standards are constantly developing. Hitechtrader has been serving the scientific community since 1982, and our extensive knowledge of analytical instruments can help you find the right new, used or refurbished laboratory equipment to suit both your applications and the ever evolving testing standards. Feel free to contact us by chat, email or phone for guidance with sample preparation, method development and establishing GLP (good laboratory practices) to ensure your state and federal standards are met. We can also help you customize your equipment with the proper components as methods progress.

Cannabis Extraction Equipment:

Cannabis compounds are extracted from raw plant material and tested for potency and contaminants. Some types of cannabis extraction equipment include;

  • Mills
  • Grinders
  • Evaporation Systems- Rotary Evaporators
  • Homogenizer devices

Cannabis Analysis

Cannabis analyzer instruments, terpene testing equipment and hemp analyzers

Cannnabis analysis equipment generally is generally performed by HPLC, UHPLC, LC-MS and GC-MS Systems. Hitechtrader carries a great selection of new and used spectrophotometers and the add on components to ensure your equipment meets your application needs.
