REDEFINING TERPENE AND CANNABINOID ANALYSIS: Valenveras Portable NIR Technology


You breed and have to do a lot of costly lab tests? Or you cultivate and have to be precise on T4C level to meet regulatory limits, but have to wait days for the tests to be done for your flowers? We guess many of you do both… Well, there is good news for you!

The cannabis scene is getting a high-tech makeover, and one exciting development is a nifty portable gadget that makes checking cannabinoids and terpenes a breeze. Valenveras, teaming up with Si-ware, is leading the charge with a cool device called Neospectra, which uses Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR) to analyze cannabis components. In this post, we'll dive into how this tech is giving growers and breeders an accurate peek into their plants.


Revolutionizing Cannabis Analysis: NIR vs. Fancy Machines


Not too long ago, figuring out what's in your cannabis meant using expensive gear like gas chromatography or high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). These machines were costly to buy and operate and needed experts to run them. But now, there's NIR Spectroscopy, a cost-effective and efficient alternative.

Valenveras has gone a step further by creating NIR model to analyze cannabinoids in cannabis flowers. A portable device called Neospectra, when hooked up to your smartphone or tablet, can quickly tell you all about the cannabinoids (like THC, CBD, CBG) and terpenes in your cann4bis samples. And you don't need a science degree to use it.


Meet Neospectra: Your Portable Cannabis Analyzer


What makes this gadget special is its NIR tech. It uses a tiny chip that reads a wide range of wavelengths, giving you super-accurate results. And it doesn't stop there; the Valenveras model uses fancy math like Partial Least Squares Discriminant Analysis (PLS-DA) and Partial Least Squares Regression (PLS-R) to nail down the exact details of what's in your cannabis. (That particular paragraph was for those with a science degree indeed))).


Why We Think You'll Love the Valenveras System


This system has some big perks for the cannabis professionals. It's portable, so you can analyze your plants anywhere, anytime. Imagine having multiple grow zones, many plants in different growing cycles, and a few breeding projects at a time (then your life is as interesting as ours in EcoTrio Labs). …And being able to check your cannabis on the spot with good graph results in no time! Plus, it saves your samples, so you can reuse them.


And the cherry on top?


Neospectra buddies up with your smartphone through a handy app. You get to see your results in a user-friendly interface and have total control over the device. There's even a web portal for managing your account and checking your analysis history.


How to Use Neospectra


Using Neospectra is a piece of cake. Charge it up, connect it to your device, do a quick calibration, and you're good to go. You can finish your analysis in under a minute, and your results are saved on both the device and the web portal. Done!


Cost-Effective Cannabis Analysis


Sure, Neospectra comes with a price tag, but it's a smart investment. With this gadget, you can do in-house analysis at any stage of your cannabis growth, saving you time and money. If you ask us, in half a year using it we saved on side lab tests almost the gadgets´ price equivalent!


In a nutshell, the cannabis industry is getting a tech boost with Neospectra, making cannabis analysis accessible, affordable, and super easy. Intrigued? Check their web here: https://valenveras.com/nir-technology/
