Is PathoSEEK® AOAC Validated?

The Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC) publishes microbiological and chemical standards used globally to facilitate public health and safety. The AOAC has not yet certified any microbial testing method on cannabis

There is not yet any AOAC validation for cannabis. Medicinal Genomics is a member of the AOAC's Cannabis Analytical Science Program (CASP) working group. We are currently working with the AOAC and other CASP members to become one of the first platforms to have an AOAC certification for cannabis testing. Currently AOAC has only released a Sample Method Performance Requirement (SMPR) for Aspergillus flavus, fumigatus, niger and terreus. The CASP working group is currently working on SMPRs for Salmonella and pathogenic (STEC) e.coli
