Our Residual Solvent Analysis method tests for 11 solvents and provides three levels of data confirmation for a complete “fingerprint” of your sample. We perform residual solvent analysis on Agilent GC-MS instruments using validated methods and a laboratory framework that is in line with FDA-compliant Pharma practices.

Hemp is a complex natural product with hundreds of compounds that can cause chromatographic interference in the analysis of residual solvents. Accurately quantifying solvents can prove to be challenging unless you have the right methodology and equipment. The answer is Gas Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS). Testing for residual solvents with GC/MS identifies the molecular “fingerprint” of each solvent and gives Botanacor Laboratories the most defendable data in hemp testing.

Having the right equipment is critical, but it is only one piece of the Botanacor Validated Laboratory System. Our lab is the ONLY hemp testing facility set to the same standards of a Pharmaceutical Laboratory.  By following Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) we deliver the most accurate results in the industry.
