HPLC For Cannabinoids/Potency

HPLC Cannabis Testing

Agilent 1100 HPLC

High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is the gold-standard for cannabinoids/potency lab testing. AIM's standard recommendation when it comes to HPLC testing equipment is the Agilent 1100. However other models such as 1200, 1260, and 1290 are available.. Each HPLC comes with the analysis method preloaded and an SOP for sample-preparation. Installation and training is available and usually lasts 1-2 days in which time you will be trained in the hardware, software, sample-preparation, calibration, data analysis and reporting.


  • The Standard HPLC stack for Cannabis Lab Analysis Includes:
  • Vacuum Degasser
  • Quaternary or Binary Pump
  • 100-Position Autosampler
  • Variable-Wavelength or Diode-Array Detector
  • Thermostatted Column Compartment
  • PC Data System and Software
