During cultivation, the growth of fungus and mold can produce carcinogenic mycotoxins. Maine requires that, upon remediation of a failed batch, the mandatory retest includes mycotoxin analysis. Indicative Testing uses state-of-the-art UHPLC Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) for the analysis of toxic chemicals, due to its high selectivity and sensitivity for a wide range of compounds. This ensures that the contaminants Aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, and G2) and Ochratoxin A are analyzed using the most appropriate ionization method, reducing test variability.
Once your sample is received, it will be scanned into our laboratory information management system(LIMS) and updated in Metrc. Your sample will be labeled and safely stored in our secure temperature controlled locker until scheduled testing begins.
Our automated homogenization and sample prep process greatly reduces test variability and human error not only through precision robotic movements, but by tracking your sample through our sophisticated software, while uploading results in real time.
Using LC-MS/MS analysis, Indicative Testing will verify absence of harmful toxins produced during mold and fungus growth, below allowable limits.
Upon test completion, your results will be verified by one of our qualified team members. Your certificate of analysis(COA) will be promptly updated and emailed to you, while the batch is updated in Metrc.
What We Test For
