Microbial Testing

EVIO Labs uses the most advanced and scientifically sophisticated microbial contaminant cannabis testing methodologies in the industry. EVIO Labs surpasses many state requirements for microbial contaminant testing by looking for pathogens such as Clostridium or growth contaminants like black mold. We also offer a variety of testing options for the edible industry, including food safety testing as well as quality testing for growers.

  • E. coli
  • Salmonella
  • STEC
  • Total Enterobacteriaceae
  • Coliform,
  • Total Yeast and Mold
  • Total Aerobic Count
  • Aspergillus Niger, Fumigatus, Flavus & Terreus
Micriobiological Requirements by State

§ 5720. Microbial Impurities Testing.
(a) The laboratory shall analyze at minimum 1.0 grams of the representative sample of
cannabis goods to determine whether microbial impurities are present.
(b) The laboratory shall report the result of the microbial impurities testing by indicating “pass” or “fail” on the COA.
(c) The sample of inhalable cannabis goods shall be deemed to have passed the
microbial impurities testing if all of the following conditions are met:
(1) Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli is not detected in 1 gram;
(2) Salmonella spp. is not detected in 1 gram; and
(3) Pathogenic Aspergillus species A. fumigatus, A. flavus, A. niger, and A. terreus are not detected in 1 gram.
(d) The sample of non-inhalable cannabis goods shall be deemed to have passed the microbial impurities testing if both the following conditions are met:
(1) Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli is not detected in 1 gram, and
(2) Salmonella spp. is not detected in 1 gram.
(e) If the sample fails microbial impurities testing, the batch from which the
sample was collected fails microbial impurities testing and shall not be released for retail sale.

§ 5721. Mycotoxin Testing.
(a) The laboratory shall analyze at minimum 0.5 grams of the representative sample of cannabis goods to determine whether mycotoxins are present.
(b) The laboratory shall report the result of the mycotoxins testing in unit
micrograms per kilograms (µg/kg) on the COA and indicate “pass” or “fail” on
the COA.
(c) The sample shall be deemed to have passed mycotoxin testing if both the following conditions are met:
(1) Total of aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, and G2 does not exceed 20 µg/kg of substance, and
(2) Ochratoxin A does not exceed 20 µg/kg of substance.
(d) If the sample fails mycotoxin testing, the batch from which the sample was collected fails mycotoxin testing and shall not be released for retail sale.
