TESTING METHOD

Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay (ELFA)

OVERVIEW

All cannabis products sold in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the raw material used to make them, should be analyzed to determine the presence of microbiological contaminants. The presence of various bacteria and pathogens should be shown to be below the allowable limit of colony forming units per gram or not present in any amount depending on the organism’s suitability for human consumption.

WHY IT MATTERS

Microbiological organisms are present almost everywhere but are usually dormant or harmless to humans. If conditions are right, however, a colony of organisms can grow and become dangerous for consumption. Additionally, certain organisms can release toxins as a reaction to heat or other perceived threats. Screening all hemp products for these organisms ensures their presence is below a threshold that is safe for consumers.
