Reading a certificate of analysis (COA) can be confusing, especially when you’re trying to determine whether your hemp is compliant with the new USDA Interim Final Rule (IFR). We recently launched our Dry Weight Potency (USDA) test for final compliance testing and this article will cover the important parts of that COA.
The first section of our certificate of analysis covers the sample and test information.
The second section of our Dry Weight Potency certificate of analysis contains the test data. The three most important data points of this section are:
- Total THC content
- Moisture content
- Measurement Uncertainty (MU)
The analyst that performed the test will sign off on their work and the data will be sent to our Quality Assurance team to review. Once the data has been reviewed, the certificate of analysis will be generated and uploaded to the customer’s client portal.
