Preparative Separation by SFC

Preparative SFC

Preparative Separation

Typically medicinal cannabis production involves an initial extraction from the flower Process Principle of Chromatography using supercritical CO2
bud material using Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE), solvent extraction or similar technique to produce a concentrate of terpenes and cannabinoids. The basic SFC system comprises a high-pressure liquid CO2 pump, co-solvent pump (for gradient work), separation column, typically a cellulose column with size to suit production throughput, a detector system coupled to a fraction collector to separate required peaks and a recycle CO2 module.
