October 31, 2019  By Staff

LightLab, by Orange Photonics, is the “only portable, cannabis tester which can accurately determine the difference between hemp and adult use cannabis (marijuana) in a non-lab setting,” according to the company. LightLab Cannabis Analyzer is used by hundreds of regulators, law enforcement and cultivators to quantify THC content and other cannabinoids in cannabis plants and plant derived products.

“As the hemp industry evolves so must law enforcements’ ability to identify legal cannabis,” notes Det. Alex Poston of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Narcotics Division, which serves the greater Memphis, Tenn. metropolitan area and surrounding rural communities. “LightLab’s ability to conduct a quantitative test of suspect cannabis in a matter of minutes is a game changer. Officers now have the ability to differentiate hemp from marijuana with this mobile device.”

Designed for the non-technical user, LightLab Cannabis Analyzer combines liquid chromatography and spectroscopy, the same technology used in testing laboratories, to analyze up to eight Cannabinoids in wet or dry material, concentrates and infused products. LightLab is used in mobile compliance applications by law enforcement, departments of agriculture, fish and wildlife.

LightLab’s intuitive touchscreen interface relays step-by-step instructions allowing non-technical users to accurately determine THC content in a plant or plant-derived product in 10 minutes. Rugged and portable, LightLab weighs 11 pounds and has an eight-hour battery life.
