Law Enforcement Modes
Two testing modes offer flexibility for specific testing scenarios.
Presumptive mode reports whether a sample is CBD dominant (hemp) or THC Dominant (psychoactive) using ratios of cannabinoids present in a sample. Minimal sample preparation and on-screen guidance allow for quick and robust field checks for plant material, concentrates, and edibles.
Quantitative Mode offers laboratory-grade quantitative analysis for up to 19 cannabinoids including D9THC and CBD. This mode uses step-by-step on-screen instructions that guide non-technical personnel through sample preparation. The quantitative mode will report both quantitative information about cannabinoids as well as a presumptive determination of CBD dominant (hemp) or THC Dominant (psychoactive) samples.
Plants and Products
Cannabis plants and products (marijuana and hemp) may both contain THC, a psychoactive compound. However, it is critical to determine precisely how much THC content exists in the sample before executing a warrant and taking possession of the suspect items. LightLab 3 Law Enforcement Version lets the user immediately determine if a sample matches a Certificate of Analysis, corresponds to a business license, and is a legal or illicit product.
Test Like a Lab at Your Desk
LightLab’s intuitive touchscreen interface relays step-by-step instructions allowing non-technical users to accurately complete an analysis. The instrument’s hardened analytical components and accurate performance make LightLab the go-to tool for mobile cannabis analysis.
