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 processing as they are processing it. Through innovative in-line analytics, the FRACTION FINDER can detect presence and relative purity of botanical molecules. This can help processing facilities increase purity, repeatability, and traceability on every distillation pass. Now, you can forget the old ways of relying on manual, subjective, and indirect methods to monitor fractions. 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. The information can be used to improve the process and ensure the highest possible output purity. Experienced technicians and managers can use this system to standardize their process 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 oils as they are flowing through a glass tube. The FRACTION FINDER utilizes a technology known as fluorometry, a spectroscopic method of measuring molecules based on how they interact with light. The system has been cross-validated against HPLC results for validity.
What is it? The world’s first and only in-line molecule monitoring system for botanical oil production. The system consists of a sensor and a display.
Every kit contains:
Are you a Laboratory Technician eager to fine tune your craft?
• Increase output purity and consistency
• Gain in-line analytics and confirmation for process 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 with our record and export feature
Are you a Laboratory Director or Owner preparing to train?
• Partially automate the process (eliminate manual fraction monitoring)
• Receive full reporting and traceability of every run
Which fractions can it detect?
Currently, it is tuned for Delta-9, Chlorophyll, CBN, and CBDA.
Does this system work the same as an HPLC?
Both systems use spectroscopic analysis to identify chemicals. However, the type of spectroscopy that detection method and wavelength regime are different. HPLCs utilize light in the deep UV and typically uses a spectroscopic measurement called absorption. HPLC is highly analytical and accurate, but with the wavelength regime, it could never detect distillate through SPD glassware. Comparatively, the FRACTION FINDER n the near-UV, uses a spectroscopic measurement called fluorescence.
What units of measure does the system use?
The system uses Nanometers (nm) and Intensity (au).
Can the sensor fit on size 24 glass?
For size 24 glass, please order our 24/40 adapter. This will make your glass properly sized for the Size 29 Fraction Finder Sensor
Can the sensor be used for a wiped film evaporator system or ethanol extraction system?
Yes. Please order one of our glass adapters with your order. For assistance, contact Sales.
Is the software upgradeable?
Yes. And it’s free to update! We release updates every few months. The software is updatable from the field and accessible via Arometrix.com/firmware/.
