The Cannabis Microbial Testing Landscape is Changing.

In a fast-growing industry where regulatory compliance is becoming increasingly standardized, cannabis and hemp industries are searching for solutions to better protect product quality and safety. Many commonly used testing technologies lack consistency, require significant hands-on time, robust science, and are prone to human error. All of which can lead to lost product and lost profits.
