Orange Photonics, a provider of analytical testing solutions, debuted the LightLab 3 Psy Analyzer, which allows non-technical users to measure psilocybin, psilocin, and ACO-DMT in psychedelic mushrooms and infused products. This technology, initially developed for cannabis testing applications, is set to play a pivotal role in cultivation, production and regulatory applications.
LightLab 3 Psy Analyzer is an on-site testing tool for licensed operators and research institutions. LightLab facilitates data-driven decisions supporting strain selection, harvest optimization, extraction, accurate dosing, and consumer safety.
"The rapidly emerging psychedelics market has the opportunity to incorporate on-site potency analysis into every element of manufacturing and regulation." says Stephanie McArdle, President of Orange Photonics. "Psychedelics product producers are in a position to ensure consumer safety is a primary focus. LightLab 3 Psy Analyzer is optimized for that critical role."
LightLab 3 Psy Analyzer quantifies the amount of psilocybin, psilocin, and ACO-DMT in psychedelic mushrooms, extracts and infused products. LightLab 3 uses the same technology favored by nearly all testing laboratories, High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). LightLab 3's portable design empowers non-technical users to generate laboratory-quality data in the field.
Since 2015, LightLab 3 technology has been used by cannabis operators, State and Federal regulators such as the FDA, enforcement, universities and research institutions.
