Residual Solvent Testing

Chemical solvents (ex: butane, ethanol, pentane, etc.) are often used during extraction and manufacturing processes of infused products and concentrates. Constant inhalation or consumption of these solvents can have carcinogenic and toxic effects to the human body.

Our comprehensive residual solvent test panel detects up to 16 analytes (all ISO approved) and is an ideal solution for quality assurance. Spectra Analytical utilizes a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to quantify the residual solvents listed below:

  • n-Butane
  • Isobutane
  • n-Pentane
  • Ethanol
  • Methanol
  • Acetone
  • Isopropanol
  • Acetonitrile
  • n-Hexane
  • Tetrahydrofuran
  • Chloroform
  • Benzene
  • n-Heptane
  • Toluene
  • m,p- Xylene
  • o-Xylene
