KB Labs offers High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) potency testing. Potency testing on HPLC analyzes Cannabis samples for 10 cannabinoids. HPLC testing distinguishes levels of THC/CBD and additional cannabinoids in measurements of percentage.
KB Labs uses a Gas Chromatographer to test Cannabis samples for: Terpenoids, Pesticides, and Residual Solvents.
KB Labs uses Gas Chromatography to quantify how many Terpenoids are present in the Cannabis sample. KB Labs tests for 22 Terpenoids.
KB Labs uses Gas Chromatography to quantify the level of Pesticides present in Cannabis samples and provides Pass/Fail results. KB Labs tests for 36 Pesticides. KB Labs quantifies residual Pesticides in Parts Per Million.
KB Labs provides several types of Microbiology Testing: 3M Plate Yeast and Mold testing, qPCR testing, Mycotoxin Testing.
3M Yeast & Mold Plates:
KB Labs uses 3M plates to incubate bacteria on the surface of Cannabis samples. 3M plates look for 40 strains of bacteria. Plates take 72 hours to incubate.
KB Labs uses quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction technology to find microbiological DNA in Cannabis samples. qPCR looks for 4 strains of Aspergillus: A. fumigatus, A. flavus, A. niger, A. terreus. qPCR also tests for Salmonella and E. Coli .
KB Labs test Cannabis samples for Mycotoxins contamination.
KB Labs tests Cannabis samples for E. Coli contamination.
KB Labs tests Cannabis samples for Salmonella contamination.
KB Labs its Directors, Managers, Staff and others involved in testing and certification of samples understands the importance of impartiality in its business activities.
KB Labs will ensure that in its dealings with clients, potential clients, all its employees and other personnel involved in our business activities are, and will remain impartial.
KB Labs will ensure that impartiality is both maintained and upheld, KB Labs will identify risks to impartiality across all relationships which could result in a conflict of interest or threaten impartiality.
Pesticide Residue Analysis
Microbial & Mycotoxin Screening
Mycotoxins are fungal natural products that are toxic to humans. The main two Mycotoxins that are required for testing in the cannabis industry are Ochratoxin A and Aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2). Special microbial testing packages are available. We use qPCR/DNA technology to run our microbial testing. We also run 3M Petrifilm technology and greenhouse airborne pathogens testing.
Heavy Metal Screening
Foreign Matter Inspection
Residual Solvent Testing
Water Activity Testing
In other words, the higher the water activity value, the more vulnerable cannabis products are to microorganism growth.
