Your Complete Cannabis Microbial Testing Solution
Medicinal Genomics offers a variety of cannabis microbial safety testing assays and equipment that labs can use to process a variety of cannabis samples. Our qPCR-based method was specifically designed for and validated on cannabis samples, and it delivers quantitative, accurate results in real-time. Find out why our method has become the industry's preferred microbial testing technology.
Great Results Start with Great DNA
Cannabis matrices contain a variety of non-DNA compounds and chemicals that can interfere with qPCR reactions and compromise results. Use Medicinal Genomics SenSATIVAx DNA Purification Kits to remove any non-DNA material from cannabis samples so that you only transfer DNA to the qPCR reaction.
qPCR Assays Designed to Work on Cannabis
The Medicinal Genomics team has unmatched insight into the cannabis genome, and they specifically designed PathoSEEK® to be used on cannabis samples. You can trust PathoSEEK primers and probes will not inadvertantly amplify cannabis DNA, a common problem with platforms borrowed from food testing. Individual and Multiplex kits allow you to detect all the targets required by the various state agencies. To make it even easier, these are available for you in premade bundles online to make getting started a breeze.
Live-Dead Solution Available
Use the Grim Reefer® Free DNA Removal Kit to eliminate free DNA from dead organisms prior to qPCR analysis. This quick, accurate, and affordable solution will ensure dead organisms don’t inflate qPCR results from PathoSEEK® Microbial Safety Testing Assays.
Validation You Can Trust
Medicinal Genomics puts all PathoSEEK assays through a rigorous manufacturer validation to show accuracy, precision, specificity, linearity and limit of detection. Our team has demonstrated that SenSATIVAx can extract plant and pathogen DNA from eight different cannabis matrices. We have also shown that PathoSEEK assays can detect less than 5 genomic copies of target DNA and have been tested against more than 70 organisms to show inclusivity and exclusivity.
