Digipath Labs Awarded Emerald Test Badges
Original story from Digipath Labs
Digipath is pleased to announce that it was awarded Emerald Badges for its performance in the Spring 2018 Emerald Test for proficiency in a variety of cannabis tests, including potency in oil, heavy metals, terpenes, microbial 1 (quantitative), microbial 2 (qualitative salmonella), shiga-toxin expressing E. coli (STEC), aspergillus mold, and mycotoxins.
The Emerald Test™ is an Inter-Laboratory Comparison and Proficiency Test (ILC/PT) program for cannabis testing labs. It brings to the cannabis industry a well-established standard for testing in the environmental, food, pharmaceutical, water, and petrochemical testing industries.
Emerald Badges are awarded to the top performing labs in each proficiency test category, with criteria established by the ISO-accredited PT manufacturer. Labs that receive a Badge are not only recognized for their capabilities in comparison to their peers within a given series, but also for their commitment to good science in the cannabis industry.
Todd Denkin, President and COO of Digipath Labs, commented, "Participating in blinded, third party facilitated proficiency testing at least twice every year demonstrates Digipath Labs' commitment to continuous improvement and to being the best cannabis testing laboratory in Nevada and wherever else we may open."
