AgriScience Labs is a network of Colorado state-licensed, state-certified analytical testing facilities.
We currently offer the following tests on-site:
- Shelf Stability
Potency testing is performed using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) under the hands of highly experienced scientists. Residual solvent analysis and terpenoid profiling are performed using Gas Chromatography (GC). Microbial and mold analysis is done using QPCR and supporting industry-standard DNA-extraction kits.
ASL uses only external, third-party standards for all testing. We obtain these from two different vendors to cross-check. We also use third-party internal reference standards to ensure that our equipment is always reporting test results accurately. ASL is currently certified through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to perform potency and cannabinoid tests for THC, THCA, CBD, CBDA, and CBN. We can also test for CBC and CBG, and are working to obtain third-party, industry recognized standards for THCV and other non-activated forms of various cannabinoids. While currently DEA-controlled, these standards will hopefully be readily available as federal laws relax for the industry.
