PerkinElmer Showcases Industry-First, NY State Cannabis Regulatory Method and Leading Testing Solutions at MJBizCon®

Company sponsors event’s Science Symposium

WHAT: PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader committed to innovating for a healthier world, is at MJBizCon® in Las Vegas next week spotlighting its streamlined and standardized cannabis and hemp testing workflows, solutions, and industry-first New York State pesticide and mycotoxin method – all aimed at helping contract labs and product producers more efficiently and effectively meet quality and regulatory demands. The company is also sponsoring the event’s Science Symposium.

HOW: Visiting Booth #8327, industry members from the U.S., Canada, and around the world will learn about PerkinElmer’s matrix-specific workflows across a strong line up of automated, integrated and highly sensitive instruments, software and reagents, including the:

  • QSight® 420 triple quad UHPLC LC/MS/MS with NY Method  provides innovative pesticide and mycotoxin detection and will feature PerkinElmer’s unique, new method that quantifies all New York State’s regulated cannabis pesticides (70) and mycotoxins (5) simultaneously and at below-action limit sensitivity (0.005 to 0.25 µ/g); eliminates the need for a GC MS/MS and allows for easier validation of ISO 17025 workflows
  • LC 300 UHPLC– delivers  separation and quantitation of 16 major and minor cannabinoids including THC, THC-a, CBD and CBD-A in less than 8 minutes.
  • NexION® ICP-MS– supports high throughput, heavy metal testing of mercury, lead, arsenic and cadmium at sensitivity levels at least 100x lower than the strictest requirements; supports analysis of 11 inorganic toxins from National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • ONE Pesticide 420 ISO 17034 CRM Reagent Kit– offers compliance-savvy and ready- to-use tests for 77 pesticides and 5 mycotoxins in up to 500 samples
  • Simplicity Lab420 software– offers intuitive, SaaS tying instruments together for efficient, accurate and insightful data management and analysis; supports GMP, CFR Part 11 and ISO compliance

Finally, as part of the company’s aim to educate industry attendees on the power of testing and analysis, PerkinElmer is sponsoring the MJ Biz Science Symposium from 8:30am – 5:00pm at the Westgate Las Vegas Hotel & Casino on November 15, 2022.

WHY:  Toby Astill, Market Leader Applied and Food Segment, PerkinElmer, Inc., commented, “Cannabis and hemp are two of the most complex chemistries to analyze, and new and growing labs are constantly pivoting to keep up with quickly evolving regulatory, operational and consumer demands. Our industry-unique workflows, verified methods and high throughput, end-to-end solutions stem from years of collaboration with cannabis and hemp customers who require robust, accurate solutions and our work with standards organizations like AOAC, ASTM and NIST to help establish industry best practices.”
