Microbiological CANNABIS Testing

Similar conditions for growth of cannabis are ideal for the germination of microorganisms and bacteria. If cannabis is not tested properly, it may contain contaminants that are harmful for human consumption. These contaminants can lead to serious illness and health complications. Whether a client wants to test cannabis by traditional plate count growth or by qPCR (Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction) technology or by Ultra HPLC MS/MS, ACS provides accurate results of quality that the end user can depend on.
