Fast THC
Potency Testing

The Best Testing Solution for Growers and Product Manufacturers

Ekidna is the fastest, easiest, and most portable solution on the market. It’s more cost-effective than using a lab (even your own).

Ekidna’s lab-on-a-chip technology provides supremely accurate readings for THC & THCa in a unit that can fit in the palm of your hand.

With Ekidna, you can remove production bottlenecks and make better decisions about your crop or product.

  • Fast — each test takes about 5 minutes
  • Easy — no lab tech training needed
  • Decentralized — run many tests at once
  • Accurate — +/- 1% by weight (as accurate as a lab)
  • No calibrations or maintenance needed

Ekidna scales easily, helps maximize your output, and helps you make the most of operational expenses.
