This service can help producers identify plant pathogens contributing to loss of yield or quality in your grow facility.
ICCI is the first Europe-based partner for ASTM International’s cannabis committee, which has grown to more than 500 members worldwide in its first two years.
The laboratory expanded its footprint from 3,000 to 6,000 square feet to be able to put in new instruments needed for the required regulated pesticides testing for adult cannabis required by Health Canada.
With the historical focus being on analysis of CBD and HTC in cannabis, we now find lesser-studied terpenes being recognized as having a potentially highly significant role in the medicinal properties of cannabis. Here we explore these compounds in more detail.
The company says they have developed an innovative approach, leveraging microarray technology to determine the quantity of microbial content in a sample relative to a specific testing standard.
Terpenes are the relatively unresearched molecules present in cannabis products. Unlocking their potential could provide a whole new array of cannabis uses and benefits.
The lab will move to a centrally located 5,000 square foot facility that to serve marijuana establishments statewide.
