Moisture Content Test
Test Summary: Moisture content in plant material is determined via loss of weight by drying.
Methodology: The MOC63u Moisture Analyzer determines the mass percentage of moisture contained in a sample via loss of weight by drying. The unit consists of a balance, combined with a drying chamber located above the balance, which is heated to a prescribed temperature by a programmed temperature profile. A halogen lamp is the heat source. The sample mass is continuously monitored for water evaporation.
Minimum Sample Size Requirements:
Plant Material – 1 gram minimum; 2 grams preferred
Collection Container Requirements: Clean container such as sealable mylar bag or a screw top vial or test tube.
Turn Around Time: 2 to 5 business days from lab receipt of sample.
