Abstract: Despite the title, this article is not about weight loss – it is about generating valid analytical data for quantitative analyses. In the last installment of The Practical Chemist, I introduced instrument calibration and covered a few ways we can calibrate our instruments. Just because we have run several standards across a range of concentrations and plotted a curve using the resulting data, it does not mean our curve accurately represents our instrument’s response across that concentration range. In order to be able to claim that our calibration curve accurately represents our instrument response, we have to take a look at a couple of quality indicators for our curve data.

Abstract: Given recent law and attitude changes in the United States, the cannabis industry is on the rise — which means the cannabis testing industry is likewise growing. From analyzing potency and pesticides to testing for terpenes and residual solvents, chromatography is aptly suited to the analytical needs of the cannabis testing industry. Chromatography Techniques Editor-in-Chief Michelle Taylor recently spoke with Amanda Rigdon, GC Columns Product Manager at Restek Corp., for her input on the past, present and future of the cannabis testing market.
