Ask Us Anything

A: Trace Analytics utilizes two different methodologies when testing for microbial contamination in order to ensure the safety of your product, requiring a total of 2 grams. Moisture assessment and mycotoxin testing also require 1 gram each, and potency and terpene testing require additional material. By requiring a minimum 5 gram sample, we can ensure that all of our tests have adequate starting material. Pesticides testing requires an additional 3.5 grams of plant material.

A: Test turn-around times depend on the types of tests ordered. Most all analysis results will be ready within two to three days of drop off, if brought in before noon. Exceptions to those times for reruns, pesticides or during periods of high test volumes.

A: We accept cash and credit card payments for testing. Payment is due upon sample drop-off with request for testing.

A: Trace Analytics creates an electronic report for every sample that comes through our doors. You will be emailed a copy of your report as soon as all of the testing results are ready and complete. Results are reported when all requested tests for a sample are finished, we do not issue early reports for portions of testing. For I-502 samples, your results will be simultaneously sent to you and reported to the state traceability system.

A: Trace Analytics ensures that every specimen report is certified and review by two scientist prior to releasing results. We do this as a final Quality Assurance step so that our clients are assured that their results have the highest degree of accuracy.

A: The journey of your sample through the lab will depend on the type of testing you request. Generally, after a sample is checked in to the lab, a visual inspection occurs. Each sample received is photographed, and all flowers are examined under a microscope. All samples are divided into the various quantities required for each test requested. Following test completion, a senior scientist will review analysis results, subsequently transferring them to an all-inclusive report. All reports are then reviewed by a different senior member of the lab staff to ensure accuracy prior to releasing them to our clients and the state traceability system.
