The legal marijuana and cannabinoid markets continue to grow as researchers discover new applications. Here are some of the latest trends in the industry.
How Gilson is helping laboratories and research agencies to establish CPC techniques that aid their purification processes with precise and accurate systems.
As researchers rush to investigate the therapeutic benefits of cannabis, a lab tool long used by natural product chemists has found a new application.
Cannabis purification using CPC provides many benefits over other separation methods. Here are some of the big CPC cannabis purification questions answered.
Learn more about how CPC systems work and how they provide an automated purification solution for isolating compounds from natural product crude extracts when paired with compact chromatography systems.
We recently spoke with our Gilson Purification Team (GPT) about centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC) and several key questions you should consider when looking at CPC methods for natural product purification.
Chemists are looking for “green” purification methods that can reduce the impact of their work on the environment, particularly from the hazardous materials they use. One chromatography solution, centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC), uses familiar materials but significantly smaller volumes of solvent than traditional chromatography methods.
Founded in 1850, The Robertet Group is a key player in the design and composition of fragrances, flavors, and natural raw materials. Working on a worldwide scale, the company generates net sales of more than 500 million euros per year. Gilson has been helping the company explore the potential of centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC) for almost six years.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid from the Cannabis sativa L. (Cannabaceae) plant. Researchers have shown that CBD’s medicinal properties may be of use for treating a variety of conditions including pain, inflammation, epilepsy, and cancer.1,2 Recently, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first cannabis-derived drug (Epidiolex®) to treat children with rare forms of epilepsy.
Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (CPC): A Greener Method for Efficient Purification of Cannabis-derived Compounds
As demand for pure cannabis compounds increases, so too will solvent usage as manufacturers scale up purification to meet the demand.
