Heavy Metal Analysis of Cannabis Plants using the Advion SOLATION ICP-MS
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is a preferred method for heavy metal analysis of cannabis as the legalization of cannabis continues to grow in the United States. This application note presents the analysis of two hemp plants for toxic heavy metals using the Advion SOLATION® ICP-MS.
In this application note you will learn:
- How the Advion SOLATION is an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer, the ultimate instrument for multi-elemental analysis, provides high sensitivity measurement of trace elements across a wide range of matrices.
- The advanced intuitive software including ICP-MS Express, Quant Express, and Data Express provides an instrument control framework with automated tuning processes while also simplifying the quantitative and post-analysis data processing.
- The results of hemp measurements in this note demonstrate that Advion SOLATION provides the required accuracy and sensitivity for heavy metal analysis in cannabis materials.
