Mycotoxin Testing for Cannabis
Mycotoxins Testing & Detection
The warm and humid growing conditions of cannabis are perfect for molds and fungi — which can produce acute poisons, as well as the naturally occurring carcinogenic contaminants known as mycotoxins. There are hundreds of species of mycotoxins, some of which can be incredibly harmful to human health.
Often, mycotoxins spread due to improper storage or curing conditions. There are certain types that are very difficult to remove even with high heat. With detailed testing, you’ll know exactly which mycotoxins are present within your product and at what level. By providing this information, you can make better decisions about the cultivation, processing, and storage of your product.
At Origo Labs, we use High-Performance Liquid Chromatography with a Triple Quad Mass Spectrometer (LC-MS/MS) to find out if your product is within the state’s acceptable limits. Using industry leading processes and equipment, we screen for multiple types of aflatoxins and ochratoxin A. We deliver results that you and your customers can trust to ensure safe Cannabis, CBD, and Hemp products.
