Steep Hill, which specializes in cannabis testing and analytics in the United States and internationally, has announced intends to open a full service medical cannabis quality assurance laboratory in Albuquerque, New Mexico, bringing advanced scientific tools and methodology to the state, for regulatory oversight of cannabis.

Steep Hill is currently the only laboratory licensed by the New Mexico Department of Health to conduct potency and contaminant testing in order to meet the recently adopted regulatory requirements pertaining to cannabis safety for medical patients in New Mexico, according to a prepared statement from the company.

"We are excited to bring our entire suite of products to New Mexico, including our QuantaCann2™ - an advanced cloud-based potency monitoring system," said David Lampach, CEO and cofounder of Steep Hill. "This will enable the state to meet its THC and CBD testing requirements, while also providing regulators with a real time window into the marketplace."

The State of New Mexico requires regular testing be done in a Department of Health approved laboratory as the only acceptable method to determine the quality, purity and potency required for the sale of medical cannabis products.

U.S.: Steep Hill Releases New Test For Cannabis Market: 'Sexing Made Simple'

Steep Hill, which specializes in cannabis testing and analytics in the United States and internationally, on Monday released GenKit, a new testing product to assist the growing cannabis industry. GenKit is a proprietary sexing test kit to quickly determine the sex of cannabis plants.

According to Steep Hill, this testing product allows outdoor seed-based growers to speed up the process by which male plants are identified and culled from the crop. Steep Hill’s GenKit allows sex determination at a very early stage in the plant’s development, and shortens this process from several weeks to several days.

GenKit is an industry breakthrough that allows crops to be grown more intelligently, conserving resources and expanding yield, according to the company.

Steep Hill said GenKit works by analyzing genetic information early in the cannabis growth cycle, enabling the removal of unwanted plants from the garden, lowering plant counts, and saving precious resources and cultivation space.

"This revolutionary test, built in modular format, utilizes DNA based diagnostics to very accurately determine the sex of a specific cannabis plant, all of which is made possible by our new long read sequencer," said Reggie Gaudino, Ph.D., director of Intellectual Property & Genetic Analysis at Steep Hill.
