Fatih Büyüksönmez, Ph.D., P.E., founder and current CSO of Conquer Scientific and professor emeritus of environmental engineering, is a highly experienced, world-renowned scientist in his field. His background includes research into pesticides, heavy metals, volatile organic chemicals, and terpenes in a wide array of environmental components and agricultural sources. His work with terpenes was recognized with the Research Excellence Award by USCC. Having published extensively in the area, his training and academic experience have provided the insight and knowledge to understand not only the instrumentation, but the science behind lab testing. This is what separates Conquer Scientific from other vendors.

Which Analytical Instruments Will You Be Using?
Cannabis testing Equipment will vary depending on which type of analytical methods you are applying for, specifically, if you want to perform tests most cannabis labs need to run.
There are a number of methods for testing cannabinoids and THC but one of the most dominant is through Liquid Chromatography instruments, due to its fast and effective results.
As the cannabis global market is on the rise, so are their safety standards, and it’s a challenge that most cannabis growers face due to a lack of testing and quality control. That is why Gas Chromatography is an efficient analytical method for testing cannabis as it measures residual solvents and other bacteria that are unsafe for human health.
Mass Spectrometers (GCMS, LCMS)
Testing with Mass Spectrometry equipment is versatile due to its ability to analyze pesticide residues, terpenes, and cannabinoids. Analyzing Cannabis products is becoming increasingly more challenging due to many regulatory agencies requiring testing for the presence of aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, G2, and Ochratoxin. Mass Spectrometry instruments provide a more accurate method for trace levels of analysis of these mycotoxins; also it allows for a more reliable and robust analysis of pesticide residues, and terpenes.
qPCRs will identify genes needed to produce CBDA and/or THCA, you will also be able to be more productive in terms of time, transplanting and water as these instruments will detect the gender of your plant and eliminate male plants. In addition, this technique identifies microbes, bacteria or fungus living inside the plant.
California is requiring all cannabis to be tested for moisture content and for the results to be printed on the sample’s analysis certificate. This method will help determine THC content if changes in water make results inaccurate. Therefore, moisture analyzers are an easily repeatable and reproducible way to measure water content.
As many states are legalizing the use of medicinal or recreational marijuana, there is a necessity to ensure product quality and safety. For this reason, cannabis testing needs to incorporate the analysis of metals, which could be poisonous if ingested or inhaled. The ICP-MS method is often used for quantitive analysis because of the multielement capability, speed, and robustness of the technique.
