Welcome to Diamante Scientific!
While marijuana is still considered a schedule I controlled, illegal substance under federal law, many states are moving towards decriminalization with others going towards full legalization.
As a consumable substance, states that legalize marijuana have enacted their own strict guidelines for pathogen detection and potency testing. Regulations and processes needed for consumer safety are not standardized for the industry. The lack of homogeny in regulation causes an unavoidable flurry of confusion as people try to keep up with the ever changing state laws.
As time goes on and producers grow large enough to accommodate their own labs, in house microbial testing for pathogenic organisms such as Aspergillus, Salmonella , and Staphylococcus will become increasingly necessary to ensure that the product is safe for human consumption. Many predict that in five years, marijuana will soon see the kind of strict federal regulation that comes with total legalization.
Diamante Scientific has the products used to culture and detect pathogens including Salmonella, Escherichia coli, Listeria, Aspergillus , and many more.
