Cannabis Laboratory Testing Services

Molecular Science Corp. provides cannabis QA/QC testing services for licensed producers of cannabis and ancillary products under ACMPR regulations. We have generated a network of laboratory partners to enable an accelerated path for LPs to access accurate laboratory testing for rapid turn around of electronic Certificates of Analysis in high testing volumes. Our information systems will be specifically developed as a state-of-the-art LIMS (Lab Information Management System) for streamlining communication, delivering secure data transfer as well as the seamless review of test results between our labs. MSC is positioned as the market authority in cannabis sciences, including regulatory testing, research on compounds of high commercial value, and contamination assessments to provide business intelligence to the industry.

Potency Testing

Our laboratory tests for 15 cannabinoid analytes using a top tier LC-MS/MS system that can offer measurements in the range from 0.05 - 100% (w/w) by weight in a single analytical run.

Pesticide Quantification

Pesticide and mycotoxin quantitative analysis against the list of pest control products and their active ingredients are key mandatory requirements from the Office of Medical Cannabis to enable the sale of safe products in Canada. We can achieve < 1 ppb to high ppm ranges of all published pesticide testing requirements combination of LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS and the use of appropriate standards in testing fresh plant, dried marijuana and cannabis oil resins matrices.

Microbiological Screening

Our microbiology test provides microbial contamination ID and counts to ensure a clearance of product against Health Canada’s ACMPR requirements. Our screen includes a verification to pass < 500,000 CFU for total aerobic microbial contamination and clearance against yeast and mold contamination, gram negative bacteria and E.coli.

Residual Solvent Analysis

Our laboratory can offer the solvent head-space GC analysis of acetone, acetonitrile, benzene, cyclohexane, ethanol, heptane, hexane, isopropanol, methanol, and toluene in cannabis oil products.

Heavy Metals Analysis

Using ICP-mass spectrometry, our laboratory can provide testing to clear presence of heavy metals in cannabis plant samplings including soils, fan leaves, or flower. Our test enables a report for the presence or absence of the critical contaminants such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead but may also include the entire USP 233 heavy metal screen.

Terpene Profiling

Terpene profiles and quantitation in dried marijuana and cannabis oil products can be carried out to render a comprehensive survey of over 40 terpenes by GC-MS/MS and LC-MS/MS for product fingerprinting and formulations.

Cannabis Mobile Testing Services

MSC offers a state-of-the art mobile mass spectrometry laboratory on wheels to deliver an on-site cannabis testing platform for our community of Licensed Producers & Licensed Oil Extractors. Our 53’ laboratory trailer offers express pesticide testing in accordance with the mandatory pest active ingredient controlled list set by Health Canada and the Pest Management Regulatory Agency.
