Analysis by HPLC is the most reliable and accurate method of measuring active components in Cannabis products. SIELC developed special line of columns,  Cannsep, which allows to resolve most of the compounds attributed to cannabis physiological properties. Three columns Cannsep A, Cannsep B, Cannsep C resolved all the cannabinoids providing different and significantly orthogonal selectivity.

The liquid chromatography does not require high temperature which is the case in gas chromatography (GC) analysis.  No thermo-degradation of compounds occurs during the test.

To setup your own HPLC test capability a simple HPLC system requires including high pressure pump, injector, and UV detector.

SIELC provides all this components at reasonable cost.

You can quickly setup your own chemical lab for analysis of marijuana products using our specific columns and HPLC method tailored for this analysis.

SIELC developed 3 complementary columns with stationary phases offering different selectivity to different cannabinoids.

Individual columns and full set of columns can be purchased from SIELC directly.

Columns are available in all standard dimensions and with particles 5 µm for regular HPLC and 3 µm for UPLC (Ultra-high Pressure Liquid Chromatography).

If you contract out this test you will pay over $100 per sample.  The Cannsep columns are only consumable that you ever need to be able to perform such analysis in your own shop or home. One column can be used for many tests.
