Despite the downturn in the economy from this pandemic, the cannabis industry has continued to grow. Cannabis growers and retail shops are an essential service in many places. Therefore, many have seen an increase in traffic as people stock up on both medical and recreational supplies.
Extra traffic can lead to increased wait times at laboratories. One solution is to screen a product in-house. Devices like the ToxDetective, from Sage Health Solutions and ANP Health, allow you to test plants for pesticide and heavy metal contamination at every stage of growth. Due to N.I.D.S® (Nano-Intelligent Detection System), the ToxDetective can detect over 70 of the most common pesticides and toxins found in cannabis and hemp cultivation.
In-House Testing At Every Stage
Pharmaceutical companies profit from testing their products at every stage of the manufacturing process. Similarly, cannabis growers can now test their own plants from germination to maturation, providing peace of mind and higher returns. With results in less than 15 minutes, testing is quick and easy – no lab coat required!
Testing from a certified lab is necessary for a product to be approved for sale. However, in-house testing can provide crucial information for a grower. A screening system can help growers reduce compliance failures. For example, growers can check for pesticide drift, buildup, or runoff threats from upstream farms. If plants test positive for contamination with the ToxDetective, there is no need to waste time and money running a full panel.
Originally developed for the U.S. Army for the rapid detection of nerve agents and pesticides in source and drinking water, this award-winning technology has been tested and validated by the U.S. Military and EPA. With a 9 hour battery life and rugged Pelican carrying case, the ToxDetective is field ready.
