It’s Better Than Having
Your Own Lab
Grow your cannabis business with the fastest, most accurate, most reliable potency testing on the market
Cannabis Testing On the Go
Ekidna provides accurate numbers for THC, THCa, CBD, and CBDa potency in minutes. Our lab-on-a-chip technology was developed by a team of university professors and researchers who saw the need for a better way to test.
If you’re a smaller cannabis producer who has to mail samples to a lab service, say goodbye to the long wait for results. For larger producers with their own labs, there’s no need to worry about production bottlenecks any more.
No matter the size of your operation, Ekidna can help you streamline testing, get products to market faster, and maximize operational efficiency.
Each test takes only 5 minutes
— monitor in real time.
+/- 1% by weight —
as accurate as a lab.
Anyone can learn to test in
