Alkemist Labs has added microbiological and residual solvents testing as well as testing for THC analogs such as delta 8 & 10, Astaxanthin esters, and lower limits of detection for heavy metals.
Alkemist Labs (Garden Grove, CA) has announced the expansion of its suite of services which now includes microbiological and residual solvents testing. This is on top of pesticides and heavy metals testing launched in March of 2022. The company has also added testing for THC analogs such as delta 8 & 10, Astaxanthin esters, and lower limits of detection for heavy metals.
The new services, with the exception of astaxanthin, are included in Alkemist Labs’ A2LA ISO 17025 scope of accreditation (3851.01), which has just been renewed through February 2026. Its other accredited services including Identification by HPTLC, Identification by microscopy, Cannabinoids quantification by HPLC, Terpenes content by GC-FID, and Pesticides content by LC-MS/GC-MS/MS have also been renewed through February 2026. Its psychedelic testing services has been added to the ISO scope as well.
“For years clients have said they wished Alkemist could meet all their testing needs so they could be as confident in all aspects of testing as they are in botanical and fungal identity, and we heard them,” said Alkemist Labs CEO Elan Sudberg, in a press release. “Although it takes time to acquire new instrumentation, develop and validate test methods, and then get all that included in our ISO accreditation, this is a great achievement. I’m proud of the Alkemist staff for this expansion, and excited to meet our clients’ needs in so many new areas.”
