Webinar: Single-run separation and quantification of 14 cannabinoids using capillary electrophoresis

Date: March 6, 2024 | Time: 10:00 am PST


Cannabinoids, terpenophenolic chemicals found only in cannabis, are primarily responsible for the pharmacological effects of cannabis. Since it has the potential to be used as a medicine or component of dietary supplements, it has become increasingly important to evaluate the cannabinoid profile and quantity of cannabis products to ensure their consistency and quality.

Efficient analytical methods for the determination of CBD and other related cannabinoids are crucial in pharmaceutical and biological research. Currently, the most commonly used methods are based on high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), which can be costly and time-consuming.

During the webinar, we will discuss an alternative analytical technique - Capillary electrophoresis (CE) that successfully separates and quantifies 14 cannabinoids in a single run in 18 minutes. Our speakers will share the results of their research on determination of cannabinoids in different matrices using CE system Capel-205 by Lumex Instruments.

Join in for free and discover all the advantages of CE method such as its relatively short analysis time and lower consumption of analytes and reagents, which considerably reduces operating costs compared to other methods.
