Have an end in sight for the extraction process.

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 botanical molecules during key extraction processes. This includes integration with ethanol extraction, centrifuge extraction, heptane extraction and some hydrocarbon processes.

  • Visual and instantaneous graphing of key molecules
  • See when cannabinoids have been fully absorbed
  • Avoid wasted time and cut extraction duration

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.


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 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 alcohol 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.

  • SensorThink of this as the “eyes” of the system, as it contains an optical light pulse and detector. The sensor wraps around a glass tube then connects and transmits to the pole-mounted display.
  • Display: Think of this as both the “brains” and “face” of the system, as this interprets the signal through an advanced compute module, and displays optical information that is correlated to relative oil purity present in the flow.

Frequently Asked Questions

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. See an example of how it looks and where it goes on this page.

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

Is the kit C1D1 or C1D2?

No. 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. The kit is NOT designed for C1D1 environments. We expect to have C1D2 – and potentially C1D1 – certification by mid-2020. Email us if you would like a more up-to-date status on this.
