Sage Analytics was born out of the belief that accurate potency measurements of marijuana were not readily available,
and thus consistency and reliability of cannabis products had become a serious issue for the industry.
To improve public safety and consumer confidence, access to affordable, accurate, real-time potency measurement needed to be improved.
Our technology is based on 15 years of working with the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies.
Alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, medicines and food products all provide the consumer with information about their ingredients and potency.
Why should cannabis be any different?
People have the right to know what they are ingesting.
Growers need to know what they are growing.
Dispensaries need to know what they are dispensing.
Regulators need to know what’s on the market.
It just makes sense.
Sage Analytics is offering a groundbreaking solution for cannabis testing in legal markets.
The Luminary™ Profiler is a desktop cannabis potency measurement device that enables cost-effective,
real-time potency and freshness testing by nearly every business in the cannabis eco-system.
Benefits include instant, accurate and affordable measurements of THC, CBD and CBN that can now be tested and read
on-site by any operator, at any time during production.
Growers can optimize harvest - no more wait times for potency testing or destruction of samples.
Laboratories can increase their potency measurement throughput and decrease skill requirements of testing personnel - keys to increasing profitability.
Producers of edibles and other infused products can rely on highly accurate measurements of product ingredients to produce more reliable and consistent products.
The Sage technical team of PhD Scientists trained in optics technology, have employed spectroscopy (light) technology that is commonly used for
large-scale quality control by numerous industries including pharmaceuticals and energy, to develop a portable, cost-effective potency profiler
that can be used real-time for highly accurate cannabis potency and moisture (freshness) measurements at the molecular level.
For the first time, highly accurate CannaMetric™ Profile “proof of potency” THC, CBD and CBN measurements,
can now be made inside and outside a laboratory (in legal markets) by just about anyone.
With an easy-to-use, portable desktop device, consumer interface and optional printer for CannaMetric™ Profile product labeling,
there is simply no other testing method available today for cannabis that offers the accuracy, simplicity and versatility as the Luminary™ Profiler.
Sage Analytics was formed to address a critical challenge facing the
expanding legal cannabis industry– the lack of an accurate, affordable
way to measure THC, CBD and CBN easily and instantly at any point
across the industry supply chain. Traditional lab equipment was simply not
designed for today’s significantly expanding market and evolving regulations.
Currently, samples need to be shipped to a third party lab, and then
are analyzed on complex equipment by highly trained technicians.
Growers have no on-site measuring capabilities to replicate plant potency.
MIP producers and dispensaries have no reliable way to conveniently verify
potency in real time.
Regulators do not have convenient, affordable measurement tools at their disposal.
This is all about to change.
Sage Analytics Develops Breakthrough System for Potency Testing of Cannabis Products
Revolutionary portable device produces highly accurate results
Sage Analytics, the developers of a new generation of equipment for the testing of marijuana potency and moisture content, announced today the release of the
new Luminary™ Profiler, the industry’s first product suite capable of delivering highly accurate light-based measurement in a cost-effective, portable unit.
Designed from the ground up to meet the specific needs of the cannabis industry, the Luminary™ Profiler utilizes specially purposed spectroscopy analysis.
Spectroscopy has long been lauded as one of the best measurement techniques in the world.
Commonly used by major testing facilities and pharmaceutical laboratories, spectroscopy produces a superior test result, but until now the technology has been
too expensive and complicated for use in the cannabis market.
“We have taken our 15 years of experience developing world-class testing solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, and have created a first-of-its-kind device,”
said Chad Lieber, PhD, Chief Scientist and Co-Founder of Sage Analytics. “Virtually everyone involved with cannabis will benefit from fast and accurate potency testing,
including growers, dispensaries, manufacturers of infused products, regulators, and of course, consumers and medical marijuana patients.”
The Luminary™ Profiler provides instant, accurate and affordable measurements of THC, CBD and CBN, which can be read on-site by any operator, at any time during
the cannabis life-cycle.
The system has multiple benefits for everyone in the cannabis eco-system:
• Growers can optimize harvest, with zero wait times for potency testing and no destruction of samples.
• Laboratories can increase their throughput without the need of highly trained personnel.
• MIP producers of edibles and infused goods can produce more consistent products and provide accurate potency, ingredient and serving size information.
• Dispensary operators can provide their customers with instant analysis on any strain, enhancing consumer confidence.
• Government regulators can test cannabis anywhere, anytime, with a system that is as accurate and reliable as traditional GC and HPLC techniques, but with
results in a fraction of the time and cost.
The new Luminary™ Profiler is a breakthrough for the cannabis industry, and can help solve many of the problems and challenges facing this rapidly emerging market.
