Quantitative determination of terpenes

Nov 25, 2019

Terpenes are molecules constructed from isoprene units that occur naturally in plants. As secondary metabolites, they have a wide range of functions such as attracting pollinating insects, protecting against herbivores or as growth regulators.

Terpenes are the main component of essential oil and have a decisive influence on the aroma of plants products such as hemp/cannabis, herbs, spices or fruits. Particularly in hemp/cannabis products, terpenes are said to have a synergistic effect with the cannabinoids, which is the focus of research (“entourage effect”).

In order to provide you with information about the terpene profile of your products, QSI now offers the quantitative determination of the following terpenes in food and pharmaceutical products (QSI analysis code 14045), also under GMP conditions (QSI analysis code 14055).
