Cannabis Pesticide Testing Solution for Changing Requirements

Multiresidue pesticide testing is a challenge that is particularly exacerbated in the cannabis testing industry by the unique oily nature of the cannabis flower matrix along with the continuously changing regulatory requirements in different regions. In this on-demand webinar, we’ll cover a novel, but simple LC–MS/MS solution with guided sample preparation concepts for the 95 pesticides in the current Health Canada Requirements and the 65 in the California requirements. The LC–MS/MS solution meets sensitivity need and is flexible to include more pesticides across the diverse chemical and physical properties in anticipation of likely additions to come.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Comprehensive LC–MS/MS coverage of polar and nonpolar pesticides in a standard 15 minute gradient and a short 6 minute gradient
  • Explore chromatography and sample preparation options from flower, concentrate, oil, and edible matrices
  • Tips to overcome poor sensitivity with typical matrix interferences for acephate, daminozide, and Permethrins
  • Tips to overcome poor ionizing pesticides such as, Chlorfenapyr, Quintozene, Endosulfan, and Etridiazole

Who Should Attend:

  • Laboratory Scientists in Cannabis Testing or Food Testing Labs that are interested in multiresidue pesticide analysis in complex matrices, while utilizing the most up-to-date Mass Spec technologies and HPLC/UHPLC with real-world sample preparation concepts
