Trace Solvents



Consumer safety is our number one concern. Cannabis flower extraction for cannabinoids and terpenes is very common, so the need for residual solvent testing is paramount. Since many extraction processes use some kind of solvent, (that can be potentially dangerous for consumption) extracts should be tested for residual solvents.  This type of testing is mandated by the State of California and is seen in all major consumer products from medicine to candy.

Research and Development Testing:


We use a GC-FID method to quantify residual solvents, we need 1  g of sample for the test.
