High Quality, Reliable Testing at an Affordable Price

All testing includes a Certificate of Analysis that can be accessed through our Client Portal.

Potency Analysis

Treeline Analytics utilizes high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to isolate and quantify cannabinoids. The cannabinoid profile provides valuable information to consumers and businesses regarding active cannabinoids and cannabinoid concentrations. We recognize the need for businesses to have access to data quickly and conveniently. If this is the only service requested results are typically available in the client portal within 24-48 hours.

Microbiological Screening

3M Petrifilm, selective agar plates, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods are used to identify and detect Bile Tolerant Gram Negative bacteria (BTGN), Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) and Salmonella spp.

Residual Solvent Analysis

Treeline Analytics utilizes Gas Chromatography/FID with head space analysis to quantify solvent residue in processed cannabis. Solvent based extraction processes are utilized to make highly concentrated cannabis products such as shatter, oil and wax. Although many solvents are purged out of the extracts using heat, vacuum, or other methods, Residual Solvent Analysis is necessary to verify no dangerous levels of solvents remain.

Mycotoxin Screening

Mycotoxins are naturally occurring secondary metabolites of fungi and are known to be carcinogenic and toxic to humans and animals. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and High Performance Liquid Chromatography in tandem with Mass Spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) are used to identify and quantify Aflatoxins B1,B2,G1,G2 and Ochratoxin A.

Terpene Profile

Treeline Analytics utilizes Gas Chromatography/FID to isolate and quantify 20+ terpenes commonly found in cannabis. Terpenes are a diverse class of organic compounds ubiquitously found in nature. The “entourage effect” refers to the relationship between cannabinoids and terpenes believed to ultimately be responsible for the difference in effects between strains and products. The difference in terpene ratios and concentrations can also affect the smell and taste of a product. Although not required by the state, terpene profiles provide valuable information to businesses and consumers alike.

Moisture Analysis & Water Activity

Moisture analysis measures the water weight relative to the total weight of the sample. Water activity is a measurement of relative vapor pressure of water, which is a proxy for how much water is available for use by microbes, such as bacteria and molds. These analyses help to ensure the product condition does not favor microbial growth.

Pesticide Screening

The Pesticide Testing performed by Treeline Analytics can detect trace amounts of pesticide residue in cannabis flower and concentrates. Testing is done using High Performance Liquid Chromatography in tandem with Mass Spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS). A total of 61 pesticides are included in the test and meets all standards described in WA 314-55-108.
