Residual Solvent Testing

Accurate detection of manufacturing by-products

The need to ensure the highest levels of product purity and consumer safety is paramount. SC Labs has developed a residual solvent test (RST) solution that can identify the presence of harmful solvents, by-product impurities, and/or other added odorants and chemicals present in concentrated forms of cannabis and hemp products.

Our newest comprehensive residual solvent test panel detects up to 50 analytes (all ISO approved) and is an ideal solution for quality assurance or to address multiple state testing rules for hemp.

SC Labs utilizes utilizes gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to identify and quantify a full range of extraction by-products found in processed cannabis and hemp.

With proven processes and highly-skilled personnel, we deliver actionable information for compliance, product safety, and quality assurance. All of our tests are designed to produce dependable, rapid results, consistent with established standards from the USP1, AHPA2, DCC3, or ORELAP4.
