Ellutia to Showcase Advanced GC Applications at Cannabis Science Conference 2016
Product News Sep 08, 2016
Ellutia Chromatography Solutions will be exhibiting its advanced 200 series GC for potency testing, terpenes profiling, pesticide screening and residual solvents analysis at the Cannabis Science Conference between 5th-6th October 2016 in Portland, Oregon (Booth 222, The Red Lion Hotel on the River Jantzen Beach, Portland, OR). The conference, which brings together cannabis industry experts, instrument manufacturers, testing labs, research scientists, medical practitioners, policy makers and interested novices, is aimed at improving cannabis science across the industry.
When cannabis is grown, it needs to be cultivated & maintained using multiple chemicals in order to deter pests and diseases. Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other chemicals used in the cultivation and storage of cannabis products can often remain within the plant structure and result in a patient being exposed to potentially toxic chemicals. The screening of these chemicals is therefore essential, and Ellutia’s GC applications address this need.
Adam Zapiecki, Technical Manager at Ellutia Inc. commented: “We are very excited that our 200 series GC for cannabis quality control will be showcased at the Cannabis Science Conference. We invite conference attendees to visit our booth and find out more about the product and the need for screening cannabis for harmful chemicals, as well as our vast experience in this sector.”
