Turn-around Times

Our standard turn-around time for pesticide screening is 2 business days based on receiving the sample before 10:30am. We also offer expedited turn-around times per customer request.


Required Sample Size

The required sample size is dependent on the size of your harvest batch or production batch per 4-110 – Regulated Marijuana Testing Program: Sampling Procedures.


Instrumentation Used

We perform our pesticide screening on Agilent Technologies’ Triple Quad Mass Spectrometers (LC/MS/MS). We invested in the right instrumentation to accurately quantitate the detection limits set by the MED and CDPHE. We have the highest level of capacity out of any of the Colorado marijuana testing facilities and we won’t experience any delays in our services.

Having the right equipment is critical, but it is only one piece of the Agricor Validated Laboratory System. Our lab is the ONLY cannabis testing facility set to the same standards of a Pharmaceutical Laboratory. By following Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) we deliver the most accurate results in the industry.
