Northern Vine Canada is pleased to announce a collaboration with Thermo Fisher Scientific on an educational series of seminars regarding cannabis testing solutions. Dr. Jaclyn Thomson, PhD, Director of R&D at Northern Vine, will provide a presentation on pesticide residue and terpenes analysis methods for the series, called: "Cannabis Testing One-STop Analytical Solutions Seminar Series," across Canada during October 9-18.
The seminar series will provide information to scientists establishing new cannabis testing laboratory or scaling-up operations. The series includes four stops in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver. Each seminar will cover: Health Canada regulation updates, targeted and non-targeted pesticide analysis, sample preparation tips for improving results, fast and accurate heavy metal analysis to ppt levels, rapid mycotoxin analysis, and cannabis potency testing.
"With nationwide legalization on the horizon, I'm honoured to participate in this seminar series to share insights into how to comply with updated testing regulations for the Canadian cannabis market," said Dr. Thomson. "The upcoming legal marketplace will create new opportunities for laboratories, licensed producers, and start-ups. Through this series, we hope to support and prepare these organizations to produce reliable results and ensure every sample meets regulated safety standards."
