After lobbying the federal government about cannabis safety and keeping its name relevant among the growth of the industry, lab equipment giant Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., has announced it is offering scientists in Canada a wide variety of products that can be used for cannabis testing. 

“Thermo Fisher Scientific is supporting solutions for compliance with cannabis testing regulations in Canada by providing complete workflows and technologies to equip and supply licensed Canadian analytical labs with everything they need to start or scale laboratory operations and produce reliable results,” said Dan Shine, president of analytical instruments at Thermo Fisher, in a release. 

According to the company, the range of its product offerings can test for THC content and microbial contaminants, among other things. 

Among the media storm of news about the cannabis industry as it becomes legalized in Canada and partly throughout the rest of the world, cannabis quality testing has largely gone uncovered, however the Government of Canada maintains that it is still a top priority for regulators and Licensed Producers.
