Critical Cleaning for Cannabis Processing and Laboratories

Cannabis Processing Cleaning

alconox-cannabis-before-and-after

Before: Sticky waxes and resins, dirt, bacteria, reagents, reaction products and residues can adhere to glassware.

After: Detonox® and Keylajet® detergents get cannabis and related botanical soils out, leaving no interfering residue. Surfaces stay clear, clean and pure.

Critically clean processing equipment, whether it be labware, glassware, instrumentation, or processing and extraction equipment, is vital.  The potency, purity and quality, essential characteristics of any drug, rely on critically clean surfaces.  Cannabis is no different, and in fact, likely more difficult than traditional drug and food manufacturing.  Waxy, resin, oily and sticky residues abound which can be highly adherent, difficult to emulsify, and just a plain challenge to remove.

Aqueous detergents that are not only effective, but end-user safe, aqueous, free-rinsing, interfering residue-free, biodegradable, and without any added dyes, fragrances, brighteners or softeners.  In other words, maintaining the whole reason why cannabis, and its “natural” state is sought after.
