Cannabis Testing Menu


At SC Labs, we help streamline the testing process, bridging the gap between quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) and regulatory compliance. Driven by customer-centric innovation, our suite of solutions provides critical tools to cultivate, manufacture, and distribute cannabis products. SC Labs assays and quality systems are accredited by ADHS1 in Arizona.

What can we test?

SC Labs can test cannabis flowers, concentrates, leaves, e-liquids/vape oils, crystallized isolates, as well as liquid and solid infused products such as coconut oils, tinctures, and edibles. Don’t forget about your inputs! We test beeswax, rolling papers, chocolate, food additives, terpenes, environmental inputs like soil, and more.

If you need a product tested that doesn’t fall within this list, contact us. It’s likely that we can test that too! Looking for hemp testing? Check out our Hemp/CBD Testing Menu instead.
