Lab Testing Services Available:

With scientific standards and protocols that meet or exceed state and federal requirements, our highly experienced team is able to meet your specific needs and adapt to market demands. We look forward to supporting your business with the following testing capabilities and services.

Heavy Metals

We use Inductively Coupled Plasma spectrometry with mass spectrometric detection (ICP-MS) to provide sensitive analysis for metals at low concentrations in the parts per billion. That means confidence that your flower, water, food, and solvent-based products will be safe.

  • Testing capabilities for: lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury
  • Matrix: Derivative Products, Infused Products, and Edibles
Homogeneity

Concerned about the integrity and dosage consistency of your product lines? The volatility of hemp production can lead to variability across batches and numerous metrics, even when products are manufactured with Good Growing Practice controls in mind. Whether testing homogeneity to confirm quality control or to develop or test against label specifications, our laboratory instrumentation offers precise and accurate measurements with some of the fastest turnaround times (TAT) in the industry!

Microbiology

When vetting the best testing partner for your business, confidence in your results is a number one discriminator. Our laboratories include a full spectrum of testing capabilities including Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR), and traditional plating techniques to confirm safety of your product. Whether testing your raw materials or finished product, Certified Laboratories is an industry leader.

Moisture

Having an accurate assessment of moisture levels is critical to understanding your product’s safety. Higher moisture content leads to increased risks of mold, fungi, pathogenic and bacterial growth, all of which are significant threats to your product and your consumer. Moisture content can be effectively addressed through manipulating the humidity levels and other conditions during storage. And, by gaining an early and accurate assessment of your products’ moisture you’ll enable the development of storage conditions that support safe product development.

Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins can lead to serious illness. We use qPCR and confirmatory plating techniques to test against known primers and identify specific bacterial and fungal species. That gives peace of mind for a product safe from potentially deadly Mycotoxins.

  • Testing capabilities: yeasts and molds, total coliforms, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica, total aerobic bacteria, and bile-tolerant gram-negative (BTGN) (including Enterobacteriaceae) bacteria, and more
  • Matrix: Flowers/Plants, Derivative Products, Infused Products, and Edibles
Nutrient

Knowing the micro and macro nutrient levels of crops enables cultivators to achieve optimal harvest yields. Our Inductively Coupled Plasmas measure macro and micronutrient levels enabling effective monitoring of crop health.

  • Testing capabilities: nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, silicone, calcium, and molybdenum, and more
  • Matrix: Flowers/Plants, soil, water, nutrient mixes.
Pesticides

Pesticides can pose significant health risks when used in plant cultivation, particularly with chronic exposure at harmful or toxic levels. We use liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) to test 67 different analytes even at ultra-low pesticides levels. That means accurate results every time, all the time.

  • Testing capabilities: insecticides, fungicides, plant growth regulators, and other compounds
  • Matrix: Flowers/Plants, Derivative Products, Infused Products, and Edibles
Potency

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) enables detailed profiling and precise concentration levels across fourteen components. Our potency test validations exceed AOAC, WHO, and all State-testing requirements. Our potency testing includes cannabinoids, such as HHC and Delta-8 THC

  • Matrix: Flowers/Plants, Derivative Products (concentrates), Infused Products, and Edibles
Residual Solvents

Highly-concentrated oils and waxes, solvents are used to extract cannabinoids and terpenes from hemp plant material. We use headspace Gas Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry detection to quantify harmful solvents, impurities, or adulterants down to sub parts-per-million (PPM) concentrations. You’ll have peace of mind that harmful solvents have been fully removed.

  • Testing capabilities: acetone, ethanol and butane and more
  • Matrix: Derivative Products, Infused Products, and Edibles
Terpens

Our test methods enable identification and quantification of 28 distinct terpene analytes through gas chromatography (GC). This means your customers can reliably choose products specific to their preferred taste and smell profiles.

  • Matrix: Flowers/Plants, Derivative Products, Infused Products, and Edibles
Vitamin E

Combinations of liquid chromatography with mass spectrometric detection and gas chromatography with mass spectrometric detection assess Vitamin E and other dangerous lipids that can lead to deadly fluid buildup in the lungs. Other adulterants and viscosity modifying agents can also be measured using these techniques. The risks of Vitamin E build-up in the lungs cannot be overstated. Trust the experts with all of your testing needs.

  • Matrix: Vape Oils, Derivative Products
Water Activity (aw)

Water Activity (aw) level is an excellent predictor of microbial growth, shelf-life, color and odor stability and other indicators of a safe product. A higher aw ratio usually indicates an environment conducive to bacterial, yeast and mold growth. However, moisture levels can be reduced to a level that will inhibit growth of organisms. We use state of the art technologies to provide the most accurate aw readings, enabling you to make formulation decisions and more.
