The cannabis plant is known to be a hyper-accumulator of heavy metals in the soil and growing medium, so it’s critical to monitor levels to ensure cannabis products are safe to use. Unfortunately, there are many inconsistencies with heavy metal limits due to the lack of clear and common regulations. Most define four heavy metals (Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury) while others specify up to nine. Some are based on limits directly in the cannabis plant, while others are based on human consumption per day. Others take into consideration the bodyweight of the consumer, while some other do not even have heavy metal limits. Some regulations only refer to heavy metals in the cannabis plant/flower, while some give different limits for the delivery method such as oral, inhalation, or transdermal.
The ETHOS UP with MAXI-24 HP high throughput rotor was designed to process increased volumes of sample types and weights within a single rotor-based platform. That means you can focus on what counts: increased
throughput, high-quality data and more profitable runs.
Matching regulations and data traceability are crucial in many analytical lab, such as pharmaceutical, nutraceutical or other regulated industries. That's why Milestone offers a comprehensive Milestone Validation Package, that gives access to our factory trained engineers and specialists during the qualification process, enabling a fast implementation of your digestion system in full accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines. Milestone’s operating software, easyCONTROL, is fully compliant with FDA regulation 21 CFR part 11.
The USP chapter <281> describes the methodology for measurement of inorganic contaminants in pharmaceutical samples, where the adopted technique is the Sulfated Ashing.
Milestone's PYRO is an advanced sulfated ashing system, that allows to run this particular application in one step only, thus assuring operators’ safety and reproducibility of results.
Chemical Solutions’ laboratory requires sample preparation solutions which allow them to meet their requirements for extraordinary sample throughput, quick turnaround, and ability to handle a vast array of sample matrices, both simple and complex. Read how the Milestone products could help meeting the needs of a large and diverse range of samples and customers while accommodating their workload and operation of multiple ICP and ICP-MS systems in a cost-effective manner.
As the cannabis industry matures, terpene isolation from cannabis plant material has become a primary issue. So far, there have only been two practical applications: steam distillation, which is
time consuming and smaller in scale, or CO2 extraction, which requires expensive equipment and an experienced operator. Solvent-free microwave-assisted extraction solves these problems with a
cost-effective, efficient solution.
The old adage “garbage in – garbage out” holds true for any lab performing trace metals analysis, regardless of industry. Quality analysis and the ability to provide accurate results, regardless of whether employing ICP-OES or ICP-MS, always starts with quality sample preparation. To achieve superior data, you need to select the right microwave digestion system for your lab. In this eBook, you will learn more about the latest microwave solutions offered by Milestone and discover how labs across multiple industries use this technology to meet their unique sample prep throughput and turnaround requirements.
Your Milestone purchase represents an important investment in your lab’s productivity. Only highly trained Milestone technicians will service your laboratory instruments to maintain high performance levels and significantly extend the useful life of you instruments, installed options and major accessories.
Make sure your unit is in optimal condition all year long!
