Foster City, California / July 22, 2019

The current state of the cannabis industry is one of excitement and uncertainty. Its significant expansion has been adversely affected by confusion and misunderstanding over what is required to legally operate a cannabis business, greatly impeding those looking to enter the market. These obstacles are especially realized in the emerging industry of cannabis testing laboratories. Whether it’s licensing requirements, laboratory planning, staff training, method development or accreditation, many are uncertain of what it takes to get their testing laboratory operating and generating revenue.

Rhine Laboratories was established to serve the expanding cannabis market. Our goal is to help new laboratories implement best practices that will provide quality service for their customers, while decreasing time-to-market and barriers to entry. Rhine Laboratories consists of valuable partnerships, developed over thirty years in the analytical instrumentation industry and over ten years supporting cannabis testing labs. These partnerships benefit our clients by fulfilling their need to implement the best instrumentation for cannabis analytical testing with efficient workflows.

“With federal legalization looming closer and multiple key reform bills set to pass through state legislatures, the number of people that have set their sights on starting up a testing lab is growing,” said Scott Japczynski, executive vice president of QA Group LLC. “However, as with most emerging markets, some will flourish, and others will fail. What sets the winners apart is their ability to streamline the runway to revenue realization and become cash-flow positive.”

Based in Foster City, California, Rhine Laboratories works with cannabis testing lab start-ups by offering consulting services designed to navigate the state regulations and local jurisdiction licensing requirements, while addressing the challenges associated with launching a new business venture. Rhine Laboratories provides technical services to assist with laboratory design (including security requirements), analytical method development, and laboratory accreditation. In addition, business services such as investor sourcing, brand development, and banking solutions are also available.

Rhine Laboratories’ vision is to improve the current state of analytical testing in the cannabis industry. Key partnerships with instrument OEMs, government and non-profit organizations, leading cannabis industry associations and other stakeholders allow us to positively influence the legitimization of the cannabis industry and support the endeavor of achieving a sustainable market place.

Our analytical laboratory in Foster City provides the opportunity for OEMs to develop and validate methods with cannabis product. In addition, Rhine Laboratories will focus on the design of efficient workflows and training of laboratory personnel in a licensed testing facility. Access to technology improvements and evolving methods that address new government requirements will be critical for successful cannabis analytical testing laboratories.

Rhine Laboratories will be exhibiting at Booth 809 at the Cannabis Business Summit & Expo at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California from July 23 to 24, 2019.
