LightLab for Educators

LightLab Assists Educational & Research Efforts

Orange Photonics’ LightLab 3 represents a significant advancement in the field of analytical chemistry, particularly in its application to the study of hemp, cannabis and psychedelic mushrooms. If you are an educator or researcher in this area, LightLab can eliminate your need for third-party potency testing.
With LightLab, you can perform consistent testing more frequently, which in turn leads to greater accuracy and reliability in your data. Add LightLab to your analytical toolbox today and you’ll see first-hand how reliable, affordable in-house potency testing contributes to more robust and credible scientific outcomes.

Why Use LightLab 3?

Field Testing and Onsite Analysis

LightLab allows educators and researchers to test cannabis and hemp plants and products, as well as psychedelic mushrooms and mushroom-containing products immediately, in the field, eliminating the need to send samples to third party labs. LightLab enables quick decision-making while saving users time and money associated with analytical lab testing.

Comprehensive Cannabinoid Profiling

Measuring up to 19 cannabinoids, LightLab cannabis analyzers offer a comprehensive profile of cannabis plant and product samples that can prove crucial for research purposes. With access to frequent, accurate testing data, scientists can more easily study cannabinoids and their interactions, which supports the development of new strains, products, and therapeutic applications.

Monitor Cannabinoid Levels During Growth

With LightLab, researchers and educators can regularly test plants at various stages of growth. By monitoring cannabinoid levels, users learn how to optimize the cultivation process by finetuning inputs. In turn, educators can use this information to teach others best practices in cultivation, harvest timing, and more.

Phenotype Analysis

Researchers can analyze phenotypes to study genetic variations and their impact on cannabinoid profiles, producing valuable data for breeding programs aimed at developing new strains with specific cannabinoid profiles.

Studying Extraction Techniques

Researchers can use LightLab to experiment with various extraction methods, testing plants and products at key touchpoints throughout the process to ensure methodologies support the production of preferred product profiles.

LightLab analyzers support research and education efforts that address the following:

Cannabis Science Research
Hemp Science Research
Mycology Science Research
Quality Control & Compliance
Multidisciplinary Research
Standardizing Test Procedures
Optimizing Extraction Techniques
Investigating Medicinal Properties
Exploring Genetic Variation
Monitoring Environmental Impact
