About Molecular Science Corp.

Our brand new physical laboratory in Toronto will perform a series of analytical tests including potency, terpene profiling, pesticide, heavy metal and mycotoxins testing, as mandated by Heath Canada’s regulatory standards.

MSC is also bringing to market the industry’s first mobile lab, custom built to provide an onsite pesticide testing solution to customers and to enable an interactive educational platform for product safety awareness to assist producers in making informed decisions about their cultivation practices.

As an extension of our lab facility in Toronto, the mobile lab will employ a variety of scientific instrumentation with a focus on liquid chromatography mass spectrometry, and will utilize a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to ensure seamless and efficient alignment of analytical results between our mobile lab, physical lab and our clients.

Cannabis Metabolomics

Cannabis Metabolomics

Over the past two decades, the ability to identify and quantify a whole range of metabolites from plant material has become progressively simpler and increasingly cost effective. This field of study, known as ‘Plant Metabolomics’, is transforming the discovery process for compounds that impact our everyday perception of plants. However, one of the major challenges we face in the post-metabolomics era is to understand how plants actually make these compounds - compounds, for example, which are nutritionally important or have industrial and pharmaceutical relevance. Combined with an avalanche of sequenced genomes and DNA technology, advances in high resolution instrumentation have finally made it feasible to ‘bring plant genes to life’ and uncover the involvement of specific genes in previously…

Exploiting Genomics to Improve Cannabis Cultivars

Exploiting Genomics to Improve Cannabis Cultivars

Large scale DNA sequence information or genomics has been used with great success in plant breeding for important crop plants to improve yield and tolerance to important environmental stresses like drought. This same paradigm can be used to improve cannabis cultivars, as well as to determine the effect of different environmental growth conditions on how individual cultivars can grow, their resistance to pathogens and the important metabolites like cannabinoids and terpenes they produce. We have the expertise derived from our experience using these technologies to study important crop plants like corn and rice to do the same for the cannabis industry.
