Microbiology cannabis and hemp testing lab
Microbiology is the study and analysis of microorganisms. As with many agricultural or manufactured consumer goods, contamination can occur with improper handling or production techniques. Exposure to these harmful microbiological contaminants can pose serious health risks. Microbiological testing ensures safe product reaches consumers, especially those with compromised immune systems. In California, cannabis must be tested for Salmonella, E.coli, Aspergillus species A. fumigatus, A. flavus, A. niger, and A. terreus.
Mycotoxins are toxic metabolic products from molds or fungi and are typically found in agricultural products. Mycotoxins can negatively impact health, most notably for the kidney, liver, and endocrine systems. In California all cannabis products are required to be tested for Mycotoxins. The total presence of Aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, G2 cannot meet or exceed 20 ug/kg, and total Ochratoxin A cannot meet or exceed 20 ug/kg.
