Mold/Mildew/Microbes Analysis

Mold/Mildew/Microbes Analysis

Our qPCR-based method was specifically designed for and validated on cannabis samples, and it delivers quantitative, accurate results in real-time. Microbial contamination on cannabis products represents one of the most significant threats to cannabis consumers, particularly immunocompromised patients who could develop harmful infections. Powdery Mildew is the most destructive fungal pathogen for Cannabis. It is an obligate biotroph that can vascularize into the plant tissue and remain invisible to a grower. Confirm that your products are free of molds, mildews, and microbial contamination.

The Current Microbes we analyze for is:

Total Aerobic Bacteria Bile Tolerant Bacteria
Total Yeast and Mold E. Coli
Total Coliform Salmonella

 

Minimum Sample Size:

1.2g Finished Plant Material / Extract

1 Packaged Infused Product (minimum sample size: 3 grams)

Homogeneity Reporting

Homogeneity Reporting

Homogeneity testing determines if the cannabinoid potency of infused edible products is evenly distributed throughout the product to ensure that cannabinoids are not too highly concentrated in one area of the product.

Product Homogeneity Report

A increment from 3 different locations on 1 product to measure the standard deviation of Total THC and/or CBD Content

Minimum Sample Size:

3g Extract

1 Packaged Infused Product (minimum sample size: 9 grams)

Batch Homogeneity Report

3 products from one batch to measure the standard deviation of Total THC and/or CBD Content

Minimum Sample Size:

3g Extract

3 Packaged Infused Product (minimum sample size: 3 grams)

Water Activity Analysis

Water Activity Analysis

Water activity (aw) is derived from fundamental principles of thermodynamics and physical chemistry. As a thermodynamic principle there are requirements in defining water activity that must be met. These requirements are: pure water (aw = 1.0) is the standard state, the system is in equilibrium, and the temperature is defined.

Shelf life and water activity

How does water activity simplify shelf life?

  1. It simplifies prediction. You can use your water activity meter plus one other measurement method (which one depends on your particular failure mode) to run a straightforward, in-house experiment that will predict your shelf life accurately.
  2. It standardizes production. You can set a water activity specification that lets you achieve your optimal shelf life with every batch.

Your shelf life data can provide valuable insights to help you stop product failure, predict and lengthen shelf life, choose the most cost-effective packaging, and more.

Minimum Sample Size:

Moisture Content Analysis

Moisture Content Analysis

Moisture content (or water content) is defined as the percentage of a product’s weight that is composed of water.
