AOAC Validated and Automated Microbial Testing from Bio-Rad

Kevin Moore, Key Account Manager from Bio-Rad, discusses their AOAC Validated and Automated Microbial PCR tests available for Cannabis labs.

  • Software used for their kits streamlines workflow for labs and frees up time for technicians.
  • Their Free DNA Removal Solution (FDRS) grants the ability to confirm detection of live Aspergillus—not just free DNA that might be present in the sample.
  • Bio-Rad uses double-stranded probes that makes them more shelf stable, increases the specificity of their kits, and allows them to be shipped at ambient temperature.
