    Biography

      Dr. Eberhardt Kuhn is the Marketing Manager for Food and Consumer Products at Shimadzu Scientific Instruments.   He is a renowned chromatographer with over 30 years of experience in this field at companies like Restek, Agilent, and Bio-Rad.  Dr. Kuhn has presented talks at conferences and events in over 30 countries.  His expertise is the field of chromatographic separations, column chemistry, and scientific instrumental analysis of food, including determination and identification of contaminants, like pesticides or heavy metals, food quality, e.g., fusel alcohols in alcoholic beverages, and analytical method development, e.g., antibiotics in honey and acrylamide in fried foods.  His recent interests include food contamination from Food Contact Materials, such as PFAS, and detection of food adulteration and confirmation of food authenticity.


    Abstract

    From seed to sale, from accurate cannabis potency profiles to reliable, highly sensitive pesticide analysis, the Cannabis and Hemp industries have a demand for robust testing that delivers defensible data.  In this webinar, we present the latest technologies used to analyze every aspect of cannabis and hemp to assure highest quality.  In addition to the most recent advances in chromatographic and spectroscopic methods for determination of potency (cannabinoids) terpenes (the sweet scent of sativa), pesticides (from farming), residual solvents (from extraction), metals (from soil), mycotoxins (from air), and water activity, we also describe how to measure another critical quality parameter: texture of edibles.  Texture is a critical characteristic in the perception of consumers for cannabis and hemp edibles, like gummies, and must therefore be controlled and measured to assure a consistent consumer experience.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand the importance of a robust QC program for cannabis and hemp quality

    2. Explain the latest analytical techniques used in QC of cannabis and hemp

    3. Expand the scope of quality testing to include texture of edibles
