ST. LOUIS, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sage Analytics (www.sageanalytics.com), the developers of portable, laboratory-quality cannabis potency measurement systems, announced that its Luminary Beacon device won the Excellence in Design Gold Award (highest honor) from Appliance Design.
The company worked with Metaphase Design Group to develop an attractive, lightweight, fully functional cannabis potency testing system, utilizing optical spectroscopy – a highly accurate, FDA-approved technology in use by top pharmaceutical companies, most often in large, industrial applications.
Through careful design and engineering, the teams at Sage Analytics and Metaphase Design Group were able to produce the world's first award-winning portable cannabis potency analysis device in a sleek unit that looks beautiful and performs with both speed and accuracy. An elegant touchscreen interface allows users to quickly analyze both cannabis and extracts, while an innovative vacuum formed disposable cup helps to keep the analyzer lens clean and minimizes extract waste.
