Identity and Strength testing by HPLC
We primarily test dietary supplement ingredients as raw materials, and some finished products, depending on the matrix or delivery system. This includes testing CBD, Δ-9-THC, CBD-A, and THC-A for hemp and hemp-derived products.
Heavy metal contaminants and elemental analysis by ICP-MS
We test a standard panel of Arsenic, Mercury, Lead, and Cadmium, with a LOQ to 1 ppb and also quantitate the elements in the raw materials.
Pesticide screening by LC-MS/MS
We report pesticide levels for most of the standard USP 561 list recommended for dietary supplements and the full Oregon pesticide list required for cannabis in many states, including Arkansas.
Microbiological Contaminants by AOAC and FDA-BAM
We test for E. coli, total aerobic count, yeast, and mold.
Field testing for hemp flower.
To aid growers in determining best harvest time, we provide a service using a Light Lab from Orange Photonics (portable HPLC instrument) to give on-site, rapid cannabinoid potency testing of hemp flower. Our trained representative will provide same-day testing of THCA and potential Δ-9-THC levels in hemp flower which has been properly sampled and dried by the grower prior to arrival.
Additional tests available
We are in process of adding other tests to our accreditation, though we can perform them now if requested. These include testing for residual solvents by GC-MS, terpene testing by GC-MS, and mycotoxin testing by LC-MS/MS.
