Cannabix Technologies (CSE:BLO) and University of Florida chemists have confirmed that the company’s unique FAIMS cell, coupled with mass spectrometry, has the ability to detect THC.
As quoted in the press release:
We have successfully isolated THC and THC-related by-products in controlled simulated breath samples, with the current FAIMS-MS configuration demonstrating THC detection limits which are at least 10 times more sensitive than previously reported in the exhaled breath literature. The Company also reports that it has been evaluating the feasibility of detecting other volatile compounds of interest using FAIMS-MS with promising preliminary results for cocaine models in simulated breath samples.
Development of the Cannabix instrument is rapidly advancing. Many proprietary components, such as a high-voltage generator, non-radioactive ionization source, and array detector are being integrated with the novel FAIMS cell to provide the most technologically advanced FAIMS-based instrument in the world.
