PacLab Analytics(R) is a Cannabis Testing Analytical Laboratory licensed by the State of Oregon. We have obtained laboratory accreditation from the Oregon Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ORELAP) for Potency, Percent Moisture, Water Activity and Sampling in compliance with The NELAC Institute (TNI) 2009 Laboratory Standards.
PacLab Analytics provides quality assurance laboratory testing services for the legal cannabis industry. The lab was founded in Hillsboro, Oregon by a team of experienced engineers from the semiconductor industry. We bring advanced analytical capabilities to serve the health and knowledge of the industry.
Cannabis Potency testing refers to a method of quantitatively determining the concentration of cannabinoids in a particular cannabis product, which is intended for consumer consumption. The State of Oregon requires that all cannabis products be tested for Potency (THC, THCA, CBD, and CBDA concentration) according to rules OAR 333-007-0310, OAR 333-007-0320, OAR 333-007-0430, 333-064-0100, and OAR 333-064-0110.
PacLab Analytics(R) uses High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) to quantitatively determine the concentration of cannabinoids in cannabis products. HPLC is a powerful method in analytical chemistry for the separation and quantitative analyses of closely related chemical species. In this method, the sample is transported in a mobile phase (a liquid in this case) and forced through an immiscible stationary phase, which is fixed in place in a column. The effectiveness of a chromatographic column in separating two solutes depends in part upon the relative rates at which the two species are eluted. These rates are determined by the magnitude of the equilibrium constants for the reactions by which the solutes distribute themselves between the mobile and stationary phases, as described by the Partition Coefficient.
Water Activity and Moisture Content (refer to OAR 333-007-0420) results will be included in the Cannabis Potency Test Results Report.
