NEW: Add-on test ideal for preliminary screening of pesticides in biomass
Microextraction for pesticides
Trace amounts of residual pesticides can quickly exceed harmful levels when flower biomass is processed into concentrates and/or extracts. Cannabis microextraction testing can help mimic traditional manufacturing processes and offer early insight into potential contamination of a final product. SC Labs offers a microextraction process that can be applied to biomass for pesticide analysis. With the SC Labs Microextraction Test, clients can better evaluate pesticide risk and determine if raw material should be purchased and processed.
