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.

  • Screening samples followed by speciation of Aspergillus spp. as needed, offers flexibility and cost-savings to users.
  • Free DNA Removal Solution (FDRS) safely removes free/dead cell DNA from the sample so only viable cells are detected, reducing irregularities in sample result reporting.
  • PCR chemistry makes the kits stable and increases their sensitivity
  • Complete solution for cannabis labs - from enrichment media, all-in-one PCR kits, chromogenic media, and instruments for microbial detection and confirmations.
  • Methods developed and optimized to streamline workflow for labs and automation solution frees up technician time.
