DigiPath Inc. [OTC: DIGP], a provider of cannabis testing services through its DigiPath Labs subsidiary, as well as a number of other businesses, recently announced the completion of validation of four Romer Labs food safety testing solutions for cannabis. The company intends to use Romer Labs’ rapid diagnostic testing kits to screen for food-borne pathogens and mycotoxins present in cannabis plants.
“This joint effort between independent cannabis testing labs in two states and Romer Labs comprised the first validation of kit-based assays for food-borne pathogen and mycotoxin quality assurance testing on cannabis,” says Dr. Cindy Orser, DigiPath Labs’ CSO. “Romer Labs has earned itself a stellar reputation in the food industry—it is the trusted brand for food safety testing, accepted by the food-production industry and familiar to the FDA.”
Mycotoxin testing is one of the many quality tests that DigiPath Labs performs to comply with the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health’s rules for safety testing of cannabis products. As one of the early pioneers of cannabis testing in the State of Nevada, the company anticipates capturing a significant amount of business in the area, particularly with the state considering the legalization of recreational marijuana on November’s ballot.
“These kits are already used by food producers in the United States and around the world to help ensure we don’t buy food products contaminated with harmful levels of pathogens and mycotoxins,” explains Todd Denkin, DigiPath Labs’ CEO. “Incorporating them into our testing process helps us achieve regulatory compliance, promote public safety and health, and increase credibility regarding the cannabis industry’s ability to make responsible choices.”
In addition to cannabis testing, the company provides education, training, and unbiased news coverage focused on the cannabis industry through other divisions. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.digipath.com.
