Medical Marijuana Testing
 

Loss on Drying Analysis
Moisture content is tested by verifying the weight of the sample before and after drying in an oven. This test is performed to allow for proper chemical content quantification in dry marijuana.

Potency Analysis
Gas Chromatography (GC) and a Flame Ionization Detector (FID) are used to determine cannabinoid profiles. THC, CBD and CBN are accurately quantified, allowing for proper strain selection for treating specific conditions, and for the determination of peak harvest times.

Mycotoxin Analysis
Mycotoxins are a by-product of fungal growth that have adverse health effects when consumed. This method tests for contamination with the following mycotoxins: aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, G2, and ochratoxin A. The sample is prepared using a simple immunoaffinity Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) column. Analysis is then performed via High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) for fast, accurate results.

Microbiological Analysis
Microbial contaminants can be detrimental to a patient’s health. Using organism specific growth media to screen for bacteria, coliforms, yeast, and mould, this method is easy to perform and requires minimal training.

Pesticide Analysis
Pesticide content is determined by Gas Chromatography (GC) with a Thermionic Ionization Detector (TID) and an Electron Capture Detector (ECD). Samples are prepared using a QuEChERS method which is a simple, trouble-free way of extracting pesticides for analysis.

Heavy Metals Sample Preparation
Samples are prepared by acid digestion and sent to an analytical testing lab for heavy metal content analysis. Using an outside testing lab helps licensed producers avoid the high cost of the equipment required for this analysis.
