CANNABINOID PROFILING & ANALYSIS

Potency analysis is the process of identifying and quantifying cannabinoids. Potency screening measures the level of cannabinoids present in products, providing producers the ability to provide the best products and consumers the information to make informed choices on dosing and care. Materia Labs offers services to provide a full potency analysis.

Terpenes contribute to the taste and aroma, while helping to create the much sought after ‘entourage effect’, the physiological response cannabinoids produce in the human body. At Materia Labs we offer terpene profiling services. 



SCREENINGS FOR CONTAMINANTS

Plant material is an ideal breeding ground for dangerous bacteria and mold. Materia Labs provides full screening services for microbiological contaminants and mycotoxins. 


Microbiological and microbials screenings use specific cultures to determine the presence of mold, yeast, E. coli bacteria, listeria monocytogenes, salmonella S., escherichia coli, staphylococcus aureus, pseudomonas aeruginosa.



ANALYSIS FOR RESIDUAL SOLVENTS

Residual solvent analysis is important for concentrated forms of cannabis products. Repeated exposure to residual solvents can cause significant health issues to consumers. Materia Labs utilizes the latest technologies for the qualification and quantitation of chemical residues in cannabis samples. This provides the ability to detect solvents that may have been left behind during the extraction process of concentrated cannabis products.



PESTICIDE & HERBICIDE ANALYSIS

Pesticides, herbicides and insecticides can cause severe health risks to consumers. Guaranteeing that products are free of pesticides, fungicides or insecticides is not only good for your business, but most importantly assures a safe product to your clients. We offer a comprehensive panel of the some of the most common chemicals. We test for pesticides, insecticides and fungicides.



ANALYSIS FOR HEAVY METALS

The cannabis plant absorbs heavy metals. At Materia Labs we can detect the presence of cadmium, lead, mercury, and arsenic in both the plant and its extracts. Reducing exposure to these heavy metals lessens the risk of adverse health effects, especially for consumers with compromised immune systems.
