EVIO s pleased to announce that its Licensee, PhytaTech CO, has been awarded Certification for Pesticide Analysis in the State of Colorado.

PhytaTech received ISO 17025 certification, the highest recognized quality standard in the world for calibration and testing laboratories, in December 2017 and has since focused its efforts on developing, optimizing, and validating its pesticide testing method.

"While pesticide testing is not state-mandated, we predict that it will be in the following months as the focus continues towards consumer safety and ensuring that products are clean and of the highest quality," said Stephen Goldman, Laboratory Director of PhytaTech. "Pesticide residues are an extremely important public safety issue and something that has been plaguing the industry for years. EVIO remains committed to upholding the highest standards of the testing process and instilling consumer confidence in this expanding industry."

With pesticide tolerance levels in the state of Colorado at such low levels, inadequate equipment will not suffice. PhytaTech has invested in the SCIEX QTRAP 6500+ LC-MS/MS system with multi-component IonDrive™ Technology, offering the high sensitivity, reliability, and confidence required to produce data as objective evidence for the efficacy and safety of cannabis products.

PhytaTech is now accepting both Medical and Retail Marijuana Flower and Trim samples from licensed medical and retail marijuana businesses for optional pesticide testing until mandatory testing initiates.
