The lack of standardized industry testing conventions has posed several challenges for cannabis labs, an important one being how to choose the right method for your lab? We get down to brass tacks of what to look for in a microbial test method that is ‛truly validated’.

In this webinar, participants will gain valuable insight into:

  1. Globally recognized standards.
  2. Validation guidelines for PCR method manufacturers.
  3. How to design a PCR validation study for cannabis — no shortcuts!
  4. Setting the standard for the highest level of consumer safety.
