The FRACTION FINDER is the first-of-its kind, built to assist laboratory technicians, consultants, and managers see what is in the materials they are extracting as they are extracting it. Through innovative in-line analytics, the FRACTION FINDER can detect presence and relative purity of botanical molecules during ethanol extraction.
Now, you can forget the old ways of relying on manual, subjective, and indirect methods to monitor molecules. Instead, directly identify the contents with scientific fraction monitoring.
DON’T JUST DO YOUR PROCESS. KNOW YOUR PROCESS.
Knowing what is and isn’t in your material during the process is valuable insight. Experienced technicians and managers can use this system to standardize their ethanol extraction and to train new staff. Novice technicians can use it to learn, understand, and optimize.
How does it work? The FRACTION FINDER system uses a spectrum of wavelengths over time to determine the relative purity of botanical contents as they are flowing through a glass tube. It utilizes a technology known as fluorometry, a spectroscopic method of measuring molecules based on how they interact with light.
What is it? The world’s first and only in-line molecule monitoring system for ethanol extraction. The system consists primarily of a sensor pre-installed on a sight glass, power cord, and USB sensor cable which feeds into a touch-screen display.
Every kit contains:
Are you a Laboratory Technician eager to fine tune your craft?
• Increase extract purity and consistency
• Gain in-line analytics and confirmation for extraction techniques
Are you a Laboratory Manager or Consultant preparing to train?
• Train new technicians more quickly with real-time visualizations
• Review run data with trainees using the Record and Export features
Are you a Laboratory Director or Owner trying to optimize operations?
• Partially automate the extraction and eliminate potential for human error
• Receive full reporting and traceability of every extraction run
Which fractions can the Fraction Finder detect?
The most extraction-relevant molecules that the Fraction Finder tracks are CBDa, THCa, and Chlorophyll. It can also track Lipids. For a full list, click here.
What units of measure does the Fraction Finder display use?
The system uses Nanometers (nm) and Intensity (au).
What sight glass options do you offer?
We offer sight glasses with 1.5″ or 2″ tri-clamp sanitary flange connections.
Is the software upgradeable?
Yes. And it’s free to update! We release updates every few months. The Fraction Finder software is updatable from the field and accessible via Arometrix.com/firmware/.
Is the kit C1D1 or C1D2?
While the kit is designed for C1D2 environments, hence the polycarbonate shield around the sensor and sight glass – it has not officially been certified as C1D2. Furthermore, the kit is NOT designed for C1D1 environments. We expect to have C1D2 – and potentially C1D1 – certification by mid-2020.
