Residual Solvent Testing

Chemical Contaminants

Our residual solvent testing identifies the presence of harmful solvents and chemicals present in concentrated derivatives of Cannabis including edibles. Chemicals such as butane, acetone, ethanol, and propane are left over in minute amounts from the extraction process. Americanna uses only the latest technology of headspace GC instrumentation with tandem FID/MS detection for the most accurate and reliable results.

GC-FID/MS

We test for residues of solvents which can be present in derivative products including edibles. To the right are the list of solvents which have accepted use in the extraction process (green), and the list of solvent which are not approved but potentially present due to their presence in department approved solvents.
