Medicinal Cannabis Analysis

The emerging medicinal cannabis industry is big business and there is a real need for nationally-recognised regulations and quality control.

The chemical composition of the Cannabis determines the positive and negative effects of each dose. There are many different strains of Cannabis plant, all having different levels of each active compound.

Strains are cultivated through cloning and cross breeding of different plants to achieve a new strain with a desired flavour or percentage of Cannabinoid.

If Cannabis were brought in-line with other pharmaceutical testing, each batch of Medicinal Cannabis would need to be tested for Potency, Flavour profiling and Residual Solvents.

  • Potency testing evaluates the levels of each compound attributed to any health impact e.g. Cannabinoids – Delta-THC, Cannabinol (CBN) and Cannabindiol (CBD)
  • Flavour profiling would be applicable for determining strain identity through levels of compounds responsible for distinctive tastes and smells e.g. Terpenes
  • Residual solvent analysis would determine if any solvents used within the processing and extraction of different Cannabis components remained within the finished product.


Analysis of natural gas and the calculation of its calorific value are important factors for both consumers and energy producers. We offer a range of systems for natural gas analysis that are based upon ISO and ASTM methods. Components analysed by the systems include:

  • N2
  • CH4
  • CO2
  • C2H6
  • C3H8
  • iso- and n-butane
  • neo-, iso- and n-pentane
  • C6+

Ellutia will soon be launching its new ultra-fast 500 Series GC, which is particularly suited to PetroChem Analysis

Customisable High Purity Gas Quality Solutions

Bottled gas can refer to gases which have been produced either as industrial gases, high purity gases, or gas standards – all of which require analysis for certification or QA checks.

We offer tailored solutions to solve these analytical problems and customisable solutions, such as:

  • Automatic gas injection valve
  • Multi-dimensional GC with more than 1 detector
  • Fully automated to perform analysis or on line
  • Analysing after each run, or on hourly, 2 hourly etc. basis.
