Pesticide, Herbicide and Fungicide Screening
Refined LABS works with providers of holistic medicines to ensure that all products are free of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides before becoming available for consumer use.
We work with natural medicine providers in identifying contaminants such as Salmonella, E-coli, mold, Aspergillus, yeast, heavy metals, and aerobic mesophilic counts to ensure products are pure and safe for application or consumption.
Residual Solvent and Plant Growth Regulators Screening
We screen for residual solvents and other impurities present so that providers know their natural medicine is pure and safe to administer.
With more studies in the medicinal value of plant terpenes, it is becoming critical to identify terpene profiles. Knowing terpene profiles determines proper dosage amounts in natural plant-based medications. We work with providers on identifying plant terpene profiles in flower herbs, extracted concentrates and infused products.
Many natural plant products used in alternative medicines are at risk of infection by
mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolite compounds that are produced by fungus and molds. Some mycotoxins are carcinogenic for humans and can develop before and after harvest. Testing for mycotoxins is critical prior to availability for use of natural medicines.
