BEVERLY, Mass., Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LexaGene Holdings, Inc., (OTCQB: LXXGF TSX-V: LXG) (“LexaGene”) or the (“Company”), a biotechnology organization that develops genetic analyzers for fast pathogen detection and other molecular markers, announced right now plans to location its LX Analyzer beta unit into ProVerde Laboratories, Inc. (“ProVerde”), a single of the biggest hemp–cannabis testing reference laboratories in Massachusetts.
ProVerde Laboratories is a single of 3 independent laboratories accredited by the state of Massachusetts to test hemp and cannabis goods for contaminants such as pesticides and pathogens like bacteria, mold, or other unsafe microorganisms. Their testing capabilities are described in this video.
ProVerde at present cultures samples overnight, followed by processing measures that involve applying an automated single-target immunoassay analyzer to determine pathogenic organisms as nicely as beginning a second culture to enumerate indicator species. The procedure nominally requires three days, and ProVerde is seeking for more rapidly turn-about instances. For this explanation, ProVerde is interested in testing LexaGene’s analyzer, which is made to screen for various pathogenic organisms at after and offer quantitation of indicator organisms in just 1 hour. For the beta test trial, which is scheduled to start out subsequent week, ProVerde will use LexaGene’s genetic analyzer to detect and quantify pathogenic E. coli, Salmonella, and the toxic fungus, Aspergillus niger.
“In the United States, the requirements for hemp and cannabis testing are at present all more than the map, as diverse states have diverse regulations. ProVerde is active and vocal in advertising the rewards of uniform testing needs across all the states,” stated Dr. Christopher Hudalla, ProVerde’s Founder and Chief Scientific Officer. “Over the previous a number of years, we have worked with a quantity of revolutionary firms to enable them create, refine and validate their gear, processes and goods for the cannabis and hemp testing markets. It is fascinating to function with LexaGene and their new fast detection platform which has the possible to make an influence on the testing demands of these industries.”
As the use of cannabis and hemp goods for medicinal purposes increases, so does the chance for LexaGene to offer its open-access instrument for use in testing laboratories to allow screening for pathogens that influence human overall health.
“This is now our second beta placement in a hemp–cannabis testing reference laboratory,” stated Dr. Jack Regan, LexaGene’s CEO and Founder. “We strongly think the LX technologies will be revolutionary for the hemp and cannabis business as it will enable avoid the spread of illness and can be utilized to make certain safer goods for consumption.”
