The optional Converted Cannabinoid Module offers a separate analysis button on the LightLab 3 user interface to allow converted cannabinoid analysis. These include a concentrate-specific mode for simplified raw material analysis, as well as custom modes for more advanced analysis including infused products, tinctures, etc.
Note that converted cannabinoid analysis is a separate mode in LightLab. Samples that do not contain converted cannabinoids should not be run in converted cannabinoid modes. Similarly, samples that do contain converted cannabinoids should only be run in converted cannabinoid modes. The separate converted cannabinoid mode allows LightLab to zero in on converted cannabinoids specifically in order to provide the highest accuracy and precision.
LightLab uses a direct calibration using CRMs for calibration just like Laboratories do. This is not the case for the vast majority of portable/in-house cannabis devices, which rely on computer models generated from laboratory results. That means LightLab is capable of providing laboratory-grade results in a portable and economical package. In the case of converted cannabinoids, Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) are not available. Instead, LightLab relies on non-certified materials for calibration. These generally have higher uncertainty, and therefore the accuracy of LightLab will be lower for converted cannabinoids when compared to typical phytocannabinoids. Note that this is also the case for any laboratory testing converted cannabinoids as they rely on the same standards that LightLab does.
Converted Cannabinoid Mode Analytes
(note: some analytes available in other modes are not supported in converted cannabinoid modes)
