NIR – Analysis of cannabinoids


Thanks to the union between CTAEXBhalutek and Valenveras, we have developed an NIR model to analyse cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa L. flowers.

We offer a fast, economical, robust and environmentally friendly method based on NIR technology that allows the quantification of the main cannabinoids.

Apart from drying and homogenisation of the sample, no preparationconsumables, laboratories, chemicals, maintenance and qualified personnel are required.

In only 30 seconds, 32 readings can be performed on the same sample, allowing the quantification of cannabinoids (THC, THCa, CBD, CBDa, CBG, CBGa) with a cross-validation coefficient of determination (R²CV of 0.97) with standard error of prediction values, comparable to the precision of a standard laboratory analysis.

The reference method by which this model has been developed is based on the following certificates:

  • Certificate of conformity of the Quality System according to UNE EN-ISO 9001:2015 .Nº ER-0457/2010 Certified by AENOR.
  • Certificate of conformity of the R&D&I Management System according to the UNE 166002:2014 standard. Nº IDI-0017/2009 Certified by AENOR.
  • Certificate of Testing and Calibration Laboratories according to standard UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 Certified by AENOR.

The main characteristics of the readings are:
