EVIO Labs tests all forms of cannabis, hemp and cbd products, from raw plant material to extractions to infusions (including edibles and topicals), and unique products such as transdermal patches, suppositories, and capsules. Whatever your testing needs may be, EVIO Labs has you covered!

EVIO Labs Analyses

EL cannabinoid accuracy

Cannabinoid Profile (Potency)

EVIO Labs is the nation’s most trusted provider for cannabis potency testing – leading the industry in methodologies and exceeding mandated standards in applicable states. We use Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) that goes beyond testing the level of THC and provides detailed profiling of all major cannabinoids.  Some of our labs also profile minor cannabinoids. All EVIO Labs locations ensure that the test results are accurate with regular third party proficiency tests, and frequent inter-lab testing.

We currently report up to 13 cannabinoids, including:

  • Δ9-THC
  • THCa
  • CBD
  • CBDa

EL Metals quality

Heavy Metals

Heavy metals contamination in cannabis can be dangerous. And most often, metals come from contaminated soil, water, or vaporizor pens. If contaminated with heavy metals, these toxic elements will be passed into the plant and on to the consumer.

EVIO Labs screens samples for:

  • Lead (Pb)
  • Arsenic (As)
  • Cadmium (Cd)
  • Mercury (Hg)
EL microbial accuracy

Microbial Impurities

EVIO Labs uses the most advanced and scientifically sophisticated microbial contaminant testing methodologies in the industry, surpassing many state requirements.

Using rapid development plates, we determine the presence of:

  • Yeast
  • Mold
  • E. Coli
  • Salmonella
EL Moisture quality

Moisture Content

Moisture content is a measure of the total amount of moisture in the material. Moisture content may be measured by using a moisture balance instrument, or through a drying method.  Both methods involve measuring the weight of water loss before and after drying of a sample.

EL Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins

We identify biological contamination, including Aflatoxin, one of the most dangerous mycotoxins that occur as a byproduct of fungal growth on hemp and cannabis. EVIO Labs uses the most advanced and scientifically sophisticated microbial contaminant testing methodologies in the industry, surpassing many state requirements.

EVIO Labs screens samples for:

  • Aflatoxin B1
  • Aflatoxin B2
  • Aflatoxin G1
  • Aflatoxin G2
  • Ochratoxin A
EL Pesticides

Pesticides

Pesticides commonly used in cannabis and hemp cultivation are potentially dangerous and pose health risks — the greatest danger occurring with chronic exposure to pesticide residue, which is toxic at high levels and harmful at lower doses.

EVIO Labs testing meets or exceeds requirements for all States within the U.S. for potentially harmful chemicals including:

  • Insecticides
  • Fungicides
  • Plant growth regulators

EL Solvents

Residual Solvents

Solvents are used to extract cannabinoids from raw plant material. If not properly purged during the extraction process, high levels of solvents remaining in the product can cause irritation, dizziness, nausea, drowsiness, and even loss of consciousness. EVIO Labs testing meets or exceeds State and Federal requirements for residual solvents with detection levels in parts-per-million (ppm).

EVIO Labs screens for, but is not limited to, commonly used solvents such as:

  • Butanes
  • Propanes
  • Alcohols

EL Terpenes

Terpenes

Terpenes play a prominent role in the aroma, taste and effects of botanical products and plant-derived essential oils.

EVIO Labs reports up to 42 terpenes including commonly found terpenes such as:

  • Myrcene
  • Linalool
  • Pinene.

EL vitaminn e accuracy

Vitamin E Acetate

DL-Alpha tocopheryl acetate, or Vitamin E Acetate, is the stable form of Vitamin E most often used in cosmetic formulations for its skin care benefits. While beneficial when used topically, it is not considered safe for inhalation.  Recent illness ("vape lung disease") have been associated with presence of Vitamin E Acetate in vape cartridges.  Our test will detect concentration of Vitamin E Acetate in cannabis products intended for inhalation.

 

EL Water Quality

Water Activity

Water activity is a measure of the amount of moisture that is present near the surface of a product. Commonly used in the produce industry, water activity must be below 0.65 for compliance tests for cannabis flower. Low water activity assures there will be less growth of microbes in the product. EVIO uses specialized water activity meters, either in the field or in the lab, to perform the test.
