Pathogen Detection for Cannabinoids – protecting brands and providing consumer safety
As a new industry, the widespread manufacturing of cannabis products has produced an evolving list of regulations. Currently, microbial contamination testing guidelines vary by region. Coupled with short testing deadlines, this has led to inconsistencies with varying sample sizes and product types. The lack of standardized methods for the detection of pathogens could pose a potential health risk to consumers. For consumer safety, product quality, and brand protection, robust, reliable testing is essential.
