Cannabis Testing For Residual Solvents

Residual Solvents

About Residual Solvents

Solvents are often not completely removed by practical manufacturing or extraction processes.

Impurities can have carcinogenic and toxic effects to the body, which is why residual solvent analysis is a critical element of cannabis testing.

The Science

Headspace-GC/MS (headspace gas chromatography mass spectrometry) is used to detect residual solvents in sample matrices.

We Test for the following 22 Residual Solvents:

  • 1,2-Dichloroethane
  • Acetone
  • Acetonitrile
  • Benzene
  • Butane
  • Chloroform
  • Ethanol
  • Ethyl Acetate
  • Ethyl Ether
