(Chicago, IL USA) April 6, 2022 -- Smithers, a leading provider of testing, consulting, information, and compliance services invested in an Agilent 8890 GC/5977B MSD for cannabis testing. This highly sensitive, state-of-the-art system enables Smithers to refine and expand our terpenes analysis. In addition to superior resolution for terpenes profiling, its automation and configurability reduces the time spent on sample analysis and allows Smithers to explore the latest developments in cannabis and terpenes methods resulting in higher sample throughput and a path toward strain phenotyping for clients.
“Smithers is committed to providing the most accurate data, on time to our clients. Investing in equipment such as the Agilent GC/MSD 5977B is essential to this mission,” states Nat Leonard, Group President responsible for Smithers Cannabis testing services.
Nicholas Williams, Lab Director, Smithers Cannabis Testing Illinois, states “As a lab in the Smithers Cannabis Testing Services division, we are investing in technology to not only meet a high demand for testing, but to anticipate clients’ needs for years to come. Terpenes are not a required element in most compliance analyses but are important to cultivators as a way to differentiate their product in the marketplace. A highly precise and detailed terpene profile can not only help cultivators to attract new customers, but also respond to minute changes in the growth cycle in real time.”
Smithers has cannabis testing laboratories in Illinois and Massachusetts with plans to expand throughout the Midwest and Northeast.
