In this 2018 paper published in the Journal of Food and Drug Analysis, Cardenia et al. discuss their development of a "routine method for determining cannabinoids" in the flowers of Cannabis sativa L. using fast gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (fast GC-MS), with appropriate derivatization approaches that take into account potential decarboxylation. The authors discuss the various problems with other methods then present their materials and methods. After considerable discussion of their results, they conclude that the procedure is fast (within seven minutes), has good resolution (R > 1.1), and remains cost-effective. Sensitivity was also high, with "a high repeatability and robustness in both cannabinoid standard mixtures and hemp inflorescence samples."
This recorded Lab Informatics Tutorial series is designed as a management level view of laboratory systems and is appropriate for anyone planning, reviewing, or approving the acquisition of laboratory informatics. A background in science is not necessary to follow the presented material. Its purpose is to provide you with an understanding of how these technologies (Laboratory Information Management Systems, Electronic Laboratory Notebooks, Scientific Data Management Systems, Laboratory Execution Systems, Instrument Data Systems, and supporting technologies ) can be used to support/improve your labs operations, and the considerations that need to be taken into account before they are purchased.
