Heavy Metal Analysis of Cannabis Plants using the Advion Interchim Scientific SOLATION® ICP-MS
In this study, we used the Advion Interchim Scientific SOLATION® ICP-MS and a microwave digestion system to digest and analyze hemp samples using the validation methods described in USP General Chapter <233>. The sensitivity, ability to handle complex matrices, and the ability to remove interferences with a helium collision cell makes this the ideal system for heavy metal analysis in the cannabis industry.
In this application note you will learn:
- How the 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 SOLATION® provides the required accuracy and sensitivity for heavy metal analysis in cannabis materials.
