Many new and emerging developments promise to make 2019 a truly epic year for the cannabis industry.
There are many challenges in the cannabis testing industry -- from a cost perspective, sourcing the right analytical testing equipment can of critical value.
Many factors are at play in the cannabis testing business, and quality instrument vendors are sensitive to the needs and limitations of start up labs. The most important (and expensive) aspects involve securing the equipment, hiring the chemists and staff, and configuring the infrastructure to house the operation.
Trends in instrument efficiency have led to the design of smaller more efficient technologies well suited for environmental testing, food safety, forensics, and remote applications.
To succeed in the dynamic cannabis industry, labs must have a resource for testing procedures, instrument capabilities, and equipment questions in general.
From a start-up perspective, quality refurbished instruments can maximize a lab’s budget, as the proper equipment can be obtained at a fraction of the cost.
