Sage Analytics recently announced the release of the Luminary Profile, a portable device capable of delivering accurate measurements of potency and moisture content without the need for laboratory testing.
Sage Analytics is calling the Luminary Profile a revolutionary device in the cannabis industry.
The Luminary Profiler was designed from the ground up to meet the specific needs of the cannabis industry using light-based spectroscopy analysis. According to Sage Analytics, spectroscopy has long been lauded as one of the best measurement techniques in the world.
Although the device would not replace the need for testing through state-certified laboratories in places like Washington, it would give growers the ability to instantly and affordably measure THC, CBD, and CBN on site and at any time during the cannabis life-cycle.
According to Sage Analytics, spectroscopy has been commonly used in pharmaceutical laboratories, but until recently had largely been too expensive and complicated for the cannabis market.
“We have taken our 15 years of experience developing world-class testing solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, and have created a first-of-its-kind device,” Sage Analytics co-founder Chad Lieber, Ph.D., said. “Virtually everyone involved with cannabis will benefit from fast and accurate potency testing, including growers, dispensaries, manufacturers of infused products, regulators, and of course, consumers and medical marijuana patients.”
The system has multiple benefits for everyone involved in the cannabis industry:
– Growers can optimize harvest, with zero wait times for potency testing and no destruction of samples.
– Producers of marijuana-infused goods can produce more consistent products and provide accurate potency, ingredient and serving size information.
– Dispensary operators can provide their customers with instant analysis on any strain, enhancing consumer confidence.
– Government regulators can test cannabis anywhere, anytime. Sage Analytics claims its system is as accurate and reliable as traditional GC and HPLC techniques, but with results in a fraction of the time and cost.
