     Cannabis Regulation Update,

Terpene & Residual Solvent Analysis

and Heavy Metals Analysis

Cannabis Regulations - Timely Updates:

Are you finding it difficult to keep up with changing regulations for the cannbis industry?

Are you asking yourself:

  • When does heavy metal regulation go live?
  • Which pesticides need to be monitored?
  • How many terpenes do I need to account for?

In this 60-minute webinar, industry experts will tackle the most recent changes and challenges to regional regulations in the US.

Save Time and Analyze Faster - Run Terpenes and Residual Solvents in One Analysis

Are you looking to reduce hands-on analysis time? Speed up sample processing? Have less waste? Possibly reduce the number of individual tests running in your laboratory?

This segment will focus on utilizing GC/MS technology to run two regulated anlysis - terpenes and residual solvents - in one automated SOP.

Speaker: Tom Kwoka, GC/MS Field Application Scientist, PerkinElmer, Inc.

Heavy Metals Analysis - How and When do I Prepare?

You know the four dangerous heavy metals - Arsenic, Cadmiun, Lead, and Mercury. You even know their allowable trace amounts - down to the parts per trillion. What you might not know is how to avoid matrix-induced spectral interferences that lead to false readings. This presentation features overcoming heavy metal analysis in challenging cannabis samples with the aid of a sample digestion step.

Speaker: Steve Mangum, Former Senior Inorganic Field Application Scientist, PerkinElmer, Inc.

Learning Objectives:

• Understand and prepare for new state regulations in the US and pending federal regulations for Canada

• Learn how to run two regulated tests (terpenes and residual solvents) in one analysis, on one instrument, and with one SOP

• Overcome challenging cannabis matrices for heavy metal analysis with microwave digestion

 Who Should Attend:

  • Investors looking to understand the latest regional cannabis regulations
  • Investors seeking technologies that combine workflows, offer easy SOPs, and leverage multiple tests in a single technology
  • Lab Directors focused on strong data integrity
  • Lab Directors challenged with difficult cannabis matrices
  • Lab Technicians developing methods for their cannabis laboratory
