Fast detection of 10 cannabinoids by RP-HPLC-UV method in Cannabis sativa L.

In this 2019 article published in Molecules, Mandrioli et al. detail the process they developed for detecting 10 cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa L. using reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography with an ultraviolet detector (RP-HPLC-UV). Citing numerous other published methods, many of them requiring more expensive mass spectrometry detectors, the authors sought to "identify and titrate cannabinoids in a simple way" using a method that optimally would be "fast, easy, robust, and cost-efficient," making the process more approachable by not only research laboratories but also small businesses focused on quality control. Using their method, the authors conclude that the method can produce results in eight minutes, with high sensitivity and simple methodology.

Laboratory Technology Management & Planning

This document is based on a presentation delivered by chemist and automation consultant Joe Liscouski at the 2nd Annual Lab Asset & Facility Management in Pharma 2019 conference held in San Diego, CA, on October 22nd, 2019. It is not a verbatim transcript, but an expansion of the material presented. The presentation addressed the importance of effective technology management and planning within scientific work. With improved technology management and planning, "[t]hat work should yield better organized systems, reduced costs, better workflows, and improved ROI. How do you go about it? That is what we’ll start to address in this material."
