The Evolution of the Lab Testing Market: A History of Food and Cannabis Testing & How Far We've Come - Opening General Session
Deibel Labs was founded by Dr. Robert Deibel in the 1970s. Having been around for over 40 years, Deibel Labs has witnessed firsthand the evolution of laboratory testing. Beginning with microbiology testing for foods, water and cosmetics in 1979, Deibel Labs became one of the first commercial labs to develop procedures for testing plant environment samples for Listeria. Fast forward to today, and Deibel Labs has become a household name in the food testing realm and has quickly become a force for change in the cannabis testing industry, thanks to Charles Deibel, president. This presentation will include a discussion of the history of food and cannabis testing, how far we’ve come as industries and where we’re heading. It will also include a discussion about the intersection between food testing and cannabis testing, how the industries have evolved, and how the industries continue to work to protect patient and consumer safety.
