Cannabis Analyzer

More than a potency analyzer

Greenlight Analytical (GLA) is developing a highly accurate, bench-top cannabis analyzer; capable of measuring potency, flavour, quality, and safety; in a single device. GLA's instrument has a patent pending sample introduction system, making it easy enough to be used by Licensed Producers (LP’s), right in the grow-room. By eliminating the time consuming and error prone sample preparation steps, it also fits easily into the daily workflow. It provides fast results so that LPs can correct quality or regulatory problems in real time, without the risk of losing crops. The machine learning data processing means that non-expert users can easily interpret the complex output.

The mass spectrometer-based analyzer allows Greenlight Analytical to measure hundreds of compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, pesticides, fertilizers, anti-fungal agents, and herbicides, simultaneously. Monitor your crops as they grow to optimize THC/CBD potency or whichever parameter is desired. (continued below)

Although potency is the current market driver, there is much more to growing quality cannabis than high potency. In addition to hundreds of cannabinoids, GLA’s analyzer is able to measure 120 terpenes identified in the cannabis plant; chemicals that modulate the experience, give it the unique smell, and contribute to the “entourage effect” which describes how the different compounds work together. Growers seek clones and seeds with specific cannabinoid/terpene profiles, but many have found they are not always getting the expected results. By testing during the growth cycle, LP’s can adjust inputs, ensuring consistent product.

No pre-treatment of the product is required. No weighing, measuring, or mixing with reagents. Other manufacturers require up to fifteen minutes of pre-test preparation before the actual testing takes place. With our device, you place a bud in the chamber, press the start button, and within 5 minutes, you have your comprehensive test result in an easy to understand format.
