Nov 17, 2020 1:05 PM - 1:50 PM
The longest tenured member of Sonoma Lab Works and current lab director, David Chen has been a part of the company since 2015, shortly after its inception. He has a degree in chemistry from UC Santa Barbara and initially started his career in a wine laboratory, before joining Sonoma Lab Works.
Sonoma Lab Works started as an internal quality control lab for a large cannabis manufacturer. During this period, David developed methods and implemented procedures to aid in their manufacturing processes and to ensure that the product they produced was accurate and clean. In early 2017, Sonoma Lab Works was one of the first cannabis labs to purchase a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer for pesticide testing, which currently is an industry standard.
