Accredited Analytical Services

ICCIs partner laboratories are qualified high-end facilities providing analytical and research services.  All partner laboratories are accredited by national regulating institutions (according to EN ISO/IEC 17025), as well the ICCI PFC - Patient Focused Certification program, giving the client the security of good laboratory practices.

The partner laboratories can test and analyze the cannabis plant and their related products (plant material, extracts, foods, cosmetics, oils) within the following scope:

Characterization of the natural composition:

  • The concentration of major phytocannabinoids for which analytical standards are commercially available; ISO 17025 accredited method.

  • Analytes (13 phytocannabinoids): cannabidiol (CBD), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (∆9-THC), delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (∆8-THC), delta-9-tetrahydrocannabidiolic acid (∆9-THCA), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), cannabidivarine (CBDV), cannabidivarinic acid (CBDVA), tetrahydrocannabidivarine (THCV), cannabicyclol (CBC)

  • Method: UHPLC-MS/MS target analysis

  • Profile of an entire set of present cannabinoids, i.e. including the minor ones & Profile of other bioactive compounds (flavonoids, phenols,…); ISO 17025 accredited method.

  • Analytes: over 240 phytocannabinoids and 150 other bioactive compounds (e.g. flavonoids, phenols, terpenoids, amides, fatty acids, phytosterols, spermidine alkaloids)

  • Method: UHPLC-HRMS/MS screening (without quantification)

  • The concentration of major (semi)volatile terpenes; ISO 17025 accredited method

  • Analytes (35 mono- and sesquiterpenes): α-pinene, camphene, sabinene, β-pinene, myrcene, α-phellandrene, 3-carene, α-terpinene, 4-isopropyltoluene, limonene, cineole, β-ocimene, γ-terpinene, sabinene hydrate, α-terpinolene, fenchone, linalool, fenchol, isopulegol, camphor, isoborneol, borneol, menthol, terpineol-1, pulegone, geraniol, geranyl acetate, α-cedrene, trans-caryophyllene, α-humulene, trans-nerolidol, caryophyllene oxide, guaiol, α-bisabolol, phytol

  • Method: GC-(HR)MS  target analysis

Analysis of possible contaminants:

  • The concentration of pesticide residues; ISO 17025 accredited method

  • Analytes (over 350 pesticide residues): residues of all pesticides involved in EU monitoring programs

  • Method: UHPLC-MS/MS + GC-MS/MS target analysis (the combination of two complementary methods to cover the entire scope of analytes)

  • The concentration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs); ISO 17025 accredited method

  • Analytes (12 PAHs): benzo[a]pyrene, chrysene, benzo[a]anthracene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, dibenzo[a,h]anthracene, benzo[g,h,i]perylene, indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene, phenanthrene, anthracene, fluoranthene, pyrene

  • Method: HPLC-FLD target analysis

  • Solvent residues (GC-HRMS method)

  • Heavy (toxic) metals  (ICP-MS method)

  • General microbiology analysis

After the final analysis, you will be provided with the accredited test report issued by the laboratory.


Cannabis Analytical Consulting Services

ICCIs partner laboratories are able to provide consulting services regarding the analytical results (also results from analyses performed by another laboratory) or regarding the analytical services – e.g. recommendation of the analyses that should be performed for the particular samples or planning of the individual analytical strategy out of the general testing scope (e.g. in case of the metabolomic analysis).
