AgraFlora Organics International Inc (CSE:AGRA) (FRA:PU31) (OTCPINK:AGFAF) has acquired High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) equipment for its 51,000-square-foot, fully automated edibles manufacturing facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The company said the addition of an Agilent HPLC driven analytical testing platform at the edibles facility will allow it to rapidly develop and launch new edibles products which have already been formulated.
"Implementing this suite of HPLC analytical equipment into our production strategy will reduce our 3rd party product testing costs, while improving product safety and quality by allowing us to continuously monitor edible production to ensure quality standards are being met,” said James Fletcher, co-founder and operational manager for Edibles and Infusions Corporation, a subsidiary that runs the plant, in a statement.

The company also said the analytical platform will allow for the edibles facility to expand its in-house capability to support future cannabis oil extraction.
Furthermore, the company said it remains confident that it will receive a standard processing license from Health Canada in the fourth quarter of 2020.
