This latest addition to our PathoSEEK Microbial Detection Platform, allows laboratories to test cannabis samples for four pathogenic species of Aspergillus (A. fumigatus, A. flavus, A. niger, and A. terreus) in a single well.
This not only reduces time and labor for cannabis testing laboratories, it also frees up additional wells so labs can process more samples on each instrument run. For example, California labs can test one cannabis sample for all six required microbial targets, using just two wells! The Aspergillus Multiplex in one well and the STEC/Salmonella Multiplex in the other.
We designed the Aspergillus Multiplex assay so that all four species are on the same channel (FAM). That means detection of any of the four pathogenic Aspergillus species will trigger a curve on the FAM channel. We will continue to offer individual Aspergillus assays in our webstore, so labs can run a subsequent test to determine which species caused the positive result.
All Medicinal Genomics reagents are manufactured in a facility certified to ISO 9001 standards. All lots of reagents are functionally tested in house and Certificates of Analysis (COAs) are available upon request. Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
