Microbial contamination – a safety concern
Various pathogens as well as yeasts and molds can compromise the quality of cannabis and cannabis-infused products, directly influencing consumer health. To keep consumers safe and comply with safety standards, BIOTECON Diagnostics develops rapid testing solutions to help producers and testing laboratories ensure they provide safe and quality cannabis. Our real-time PCR systems, designed and validated on all kinds of food matrices, have been among the industry’s best for over 20 years. They detect pathogenic and other target organisms on a genetic level, preventing costly false positives and rather than days of waiting, results are obtained in a matter of hours. We also offer different automation solutions to increase lab throughput potential and decrease human error.
