Your Own Lab

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.

No matter the size of your operation, Ekidna can help you streamline testing, get products to market faster, and maximize operational efficiency.

Sunrise Cannabis, located in Ottawa, is […]
