Our story & Our design
GemmaCert was established in 2015 to meet the growing demand for in-house testing solutions to assure cannabis and hemp quality control.
The company was established in collaboration with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, a world-leading cannabis research hub. Since the 1960s the Hebrew University has been studying cannabis, including the pioneering work by Prof. Raphael Mechoulam.
Since its inception, GemmaCert invests heavily in Research & Development. The company’s growing intellectual property portfolio is a testament to the company’s dedication to innovation.
The GC-PRO, the company’s flagship solution for testing cannabis and hemp potency was first released into the market in 2020. Today, it is used by industry professionals in 50 countries spread across 6 continents.
At any given moment in time, someone, somewhere around the world is using a GC-PRO to test their cannabis or hemp.
Our Design - Simple & Sleek
We wanted the GC-PRO to be suitable for everyday use, requiring no specific training for operation.
We succeeded in pairing sophisticated technology with a sleek and straightforward design.
We designed the GC-PRO to be friendly and easy to use, making the most complex realms of scientific innovation accessible to everyone.
Our design and product development team works to ensure all our devices pair a well-defined and aesthetically pleasing product with high-level performance, delivering an optimal user experience every time.
Lead designer Eran Lederman was inspired by the look of GemmaCert’s laboratory when envisioning the design of the device.
“My design was influenced by the Erlenmeyer flask, an archetypical image recognized as belonging in a laboratory-like the one where GemmaCert’s technology evolved. The idea of filling this flask not with chemicals or organic material, but with advanced technology and sensitive devices was captivating.”
Design Process Objectives
GemmaCert’s testing components function within a single removable piece where samples can be placed. This chamber’s bright green hue is designed to evoke the natural world.
The upper part of the device is laminated with natural wood, a design choice intended to amplify the sensation of being connected to nature, wellness, and quality of life.
We want our products’ design to reflect our high-performance values, robustness, reliability, and ease of use. The combination of science-inspired design with natural hues is an extension of our commitment to analyzing raw materials with scientific rigor and care.
