E. coli and Salmonella
Salmonella & E. coli Microbial Safety Testing is used to detect a wide variety of species classified as salmonella and E. coli or Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC E. coli). One Plant DNA Collection Kit is included with the price of each test. Each kit collects one sample and you will need one kit for each plant that you want to test, however, additional tests can be ordered on a single sample up to two weeks after submitting them to our lab. Shipping calculated during checkout. All taxes are included
$39.99 – $49.99
In addition to Enterobacteriaceae, many cannabis regulators require cannabis samples pass Total Coliform testing before they can be sold in dispensaries. Many states use pass or fail criteria for microbial testing, recommending less than 1,000 CFU/g of Coliform on cannabis plant material and less than 100 CFU/g on extracts. It is up to you to comply with the local regulations in your area.
Most cannabis regulators require cannabis samples be tested for E.coli before they can be sold in dispensaries. E.coli is typically a presence/absence test, which means any detection of E.coli in the sample is a failure. However, Maryland allows 100 CFU/g in cannabis samples.
We developed a simple method to collect microbial DNA samples from your plants. This enables anyone in the world to take advantage of our services because our kits produce a purified DNA sample which is 100% legal to mail. All you need are the same materials (tweezers, alcohol, etc) required for any of our other tests. If you would like to test something other than plant material please contact us before placing your order.
All testing is offered for research purposes only and not valid for regulatory certification.
