  • Astrotech subsidiary AgLAB demonstrates the capability of significant improvements in yields for large scale producers of hemp and cannabis CBD-THC oils using breakthrough mass spectrometry technology
  • The company’s AgLAB 1000-D2(TM) mass spectrometer and the Maximum Value Process(TM) testing method (“AgLAB MVP(TM)”) allows large-scale distillers to analyze oils during processing, and make real-time adjustments to boost yields and potencies
  • Field trials resulted in improved ending-weight yields by an average of 30%, which can translate into bottom-line profits
  • Astrotech presented the AgLAB Maximum Value Process at last year’s MJBizCon in November, it is the premier global hemp and cannabis business conference and tradeshow

AgLAB, Inc., a subsidiary of Astrotech (NASDAQ: ASTC), has breakthrough mass spectrometry technology in its AgLAB 1000-D2 mass spectrometer and the Maximum Value Process(TM) testing method (“AgLAB MVP”). AgLAB MVP is designed to improve yields and bottom-line profits for hemp (“CBD”) and cannabis (“THC”) producers of CBD-THC oils by up to 30%.

Large scale CBD and THC oil processors use molecular distillation systems (“MDS”) to produce the valuable oils that are used in lotions, pills, tinctures, and cartridges. Using the AgLAB MVP solution, customers are now able to analyze the oils during processing and make near real-time adjustments that can boost the ending-weight yields and potencies.

“The AgLAB 1000 is a powerful tool for large-scale distillers. This product and method fills a void by providing an easy and accurate real-time analysis that is used to make the right adjustments and improve the yields,” said Joe Levinthal, Chief Science Officer and Master Distiller of AgLAB.

“We are proud to introduce the AgLAB MVP, a breakthrough technology that is more accurate and faster than any other testing method. The AgLAB MVP is very fast and is easy to learn with results that more than pay for itself starting on the first day of use. We believe this is a game changer for the cannabinoid industry and processors must use the AgLAB MVP to stay competitive,” commented Tom Pickens, CEO and CTO of Astrotech.

The AgLAB-1000-D2 mass spectrometer is a ruggedized factory floor analytical instrument designed to quickly and easily analyze complex chemical compounds found in organic plant materials.
