Even within states where recreational cannabis has not been legalized, government funded crime laboratories are seeing an uptick in seized plant and edible cannabis cases.  While toxicology sections are equipped with the tools needed to extract said samples if tasked with this additional work, drug chemistry units may struggle to treat the various edible forms, tinctures and waxes that appear in their laboratory.  Using the QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Rugged and Safe) extraction approach provides a fast and efficient way to clean up numerous types of cannabis matrices without sacrificing your instrument and column in the process.  Perfect for qualitative analysis, UCT’s QuEChERS salt blends can be customized to fit your laboratory’s needs, without requiring any extensive training for your technicians.
