Cannabis Testing

Cannabinoid Profile and Potency by HPLC/UV

Our cannabinoid distribution and potency analysis provide a quantitative potency of the major cannabinoids in your flowers, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, edibles and other cannabis-infused products. Our HPLC/UV method allows for the detection and quantification of 16 cannabinoids (full spectrum):

THCa

Δ9-THC

CBD

CBDa

CBGa

CBG

CBC

THCv

CBN

CBDv

CBCa

CBDva

CBNa

CBL

Δ8-THC

THCva

Residual Solvent Analysis by Headspace-GC/MS or GC/FID

Residual solvent analysis detects and quantifies any harmful solvents that might be leftover from production in your flowers, tinctures, topicals, and edibles. These solvents include:

Acetone

Hexane

Acetonitrile

Isopropyl alcohol

Ethyl ether

Ethylene oxide

Benzene

Methanol

Butane

Methyl chloride

o-xylene

Heptane

Chloroform

Pentane

1,2-Dichloroethane

Propane

m-xylene

Ethanol

Toluene

Ethyl acetate

Trichloroethylene

 p-xylene

Mycotoxin Analysis by LC/MSMS

We use the LC/MSMS technique to determine mycotoxins at very low concentration in your flowers, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, edibles and other cannabis-infused products, including:

Aflatoxin B1

Aflatoxin B2

Aflatoxin G1

Aflatoxin G2

Ochratoxin A

Foreign Material Screening by Microscopy

Our foreign material screening ensures your flowers, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, edibles and other cannabis-infused products are free of any potential harmful adulterants. These include things as: Hairs, Molds, Insects, Excreta, Cinders, Sand, Dirt and soil.

Terpene Analysis by Headspace-GC/MS or GC/FID

Our head-space/GCMS or GC/FID analysis provides a quantitative determination of 33 terpene values for your flowers and concentrates. The procedure includes the detection and quantification of:

β-myrcene

α-humulene

p-cymene

Guaiol

δ-3-Carene

linalool

δ-limonene

α-terpinene

Caryophyllene Oxide

γ-Terpinene

Terpinolene

β-pinene

cis-Nerolidol

trans-Nerolidol

Geraniol

α-Pinene

α-Bisabolol

β-Caryophyllene

Isopulegol

Camphene

Pesticides Analysis by GC/MSMS and LC/MSMS

The multi-residual pesticide analysis detects and quantifies any pesticides that might be present in your flowers, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, edibles and other cannabis-infused products. Our GC/MSMS and LC/MSMS procedures detect over of 520 different molecules including between others:

Aldicarb

Fenoxycarb

Carbofuran

Fiprinol

Chlordane

Imazalil

Chlorfenapyr

Methiocarb

Clorpyrifos

Methyl parathion

Coumaphos

Mevinphos

Daminozide

Paclobutrazol

Dichlorvos

Propoxur

Dimethoate

Spiroxamine

Ethoprop

Thiacloprid

Ethofenprox

Heavy Metals by ICP/MS

Our heavy metal protocol allows the detection and quantification of any toxic trace metals that might be present in the flowers, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, edibles and other cannabis-infused products. The procedure uses Microwave digestion and ICP/MS techniques for Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Arsenic (As), and other metals, if required by clients.

Microbial Pathogens by Real Time-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)

Microbial screening of pathogens guaranty that your products are of the highest quality by evaluation of harmful bacteria and fungi at the genetic level. These pathogens include:

Aspergillus fumigatus

Aspergillus flavus

Aspergillus niger

Aspergillus terreus

Escherichia coli (E. Coli)

Salmonella ssp.

Moisture content analysis by thermogravimetry

Water activity analysis by ratio of Vapor Pressure (Dew Point)

The moisture content analysis provides the exact total mass percentage of water in flowers while water activity analysis informs about how much of the water present in your product is available for microbial activity. These analyses in conjunction with one another allow you to optimize your curing process as well as help you to determine whether your products are ready for long-term storage.
