Agilent Scientists Make a Huge Advance in Ensuring Product Safety

Cannabis and hemp products require multiple safety tests to meet regulatory requirements. Among the necessary tests is analysis of heavy metals, which may be toxic if ingested or inhaled. 

Cannabis and hemp products require multiple safety tests to meet regulatory requirements. Among the necessary tests is analysis of heavy metals, which may be toxic if ingested or inhaled. However, due to a lack of federal oversight, states and provinces have set their own regulations, making it difficult to guarantee consistent product quality.

In response to this challenge, Agilent and CEM have teamed up to create an accurate, standardized analytical method for heavy metals testing in cannabis using ICP-MS for the quantification of arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), lead (Pb), and other elements. In a recent announcement, AOAC International announced that it has granted first action approval for this method in the determination of heavy metals in cannabis and hemp products. That means manufacturers can now implement a standardized, accurate methodology to routinely test for heavy metals in ingredients and final products – a major step forward in ensuring safety in this fast-growing market.
