"Our separations method is proprietary and innovative"

~Things I observe from consulting

I find it humorous how almost every lab I visit says they have amazing separations methods yet when I see them they have quite a lot of baseline noise, run absurd amounts of mobile phase, take way too long per sample, and have sub-par separations. I then point them to a plethora of free methods for cannabinoid separation that are substantially better than their current method. From there I help them tweak these methods to drastically increase performance.

How is your separations method? What’s the per sample run time? What’s the flow rate? What’s the column length?
