EVIO Labs Florida (Broward County, Florida) was recently recognized for their participation in The Emerald Test (Emerald Scientific), which is an interlaboratory comparison and proficiency assessment for cannabis testing. According to the company’s press release, EVIO Florida was recognized by Emerald for their accuracy in potency in solution, residual solvents, terpenes, microbial 2, aspergillus mold, pesticide screening, and mycotoxin testing.
“Our experienced team of chemists are among the best in the industry and these awards provide the acknowledgement of our efforts to operate above the standard,” said Chris Martinez, President EVIO Florida, in the press release.
The Emerald Test reportedly uses the standard interlaboratory comparison proficiency testing (ILC/PT) program for evaluating how accurately and dependably testing laboratories perform, by comparing how well the laboratory measures blinded samples. ILC/PT programs are common in many testing industries (such as environmental, food, pharmaceutical, and more), and provide a point of reference on how well testing laboratories perform individually and collectively.
According to the company, the Emerald Test acknowledgement helps demonstrate EVIO Florida’s aptitude and competence in conducting analytical testing at a higher standard of excellence for Florida’s cannabis industry. In addition, the Emerald Test badge results provide a measure of assurance and reliability to those who depend on precise laboratory results for patient safety, public health, and product precision.
