Slide GemmaCert Technology

Slide Hybrid Solution GemmaCert (Patent No. US10458908B2) combines motion mechanics with three state-of-the-art technologies: Near Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy Image Analysis Machine Learning

Slide NIR spectroscopy, recognized by the FDA and EMA, is used in the pharmaceutical industry to manage quality control, product development and regulatory compliance. Reference Database GemmaCert has the world’s largest reference database of cannabis flower spectra with over 250,000 datapoints collected from thousands of samples worldwide and growing daily.

Slide Samples used for reference database creation undergo thorough spectra measurement by several GemmaCert device and HPLC analysis. Reference library creation and maintenance is mostly conducted at the company’s ISO 17025 certified analytical lab under license of the Israel Ministry of Health. Database collection sessions also take place in North America and Europe, at qualified labs, equipped with up to date HPLC equipment and other essential tools. The GemmaCert reference database is continuously growing ensuring that device coverage and performance always improves.

The GemmaCert Advantage

Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, the core technology used by GemmaCert, is one of the fastest-growing and most versatile analytical methods not only in the pharmaceutical sciences but also across multiple industries.
