Kaycha Labs (formerly EVIO Labs Florida) is the largest network of full-service ISO accredited cannabis testing laboratories in the United States and has established the gold standard in testing with its reputation for accuracy, patient safety, method development, and validation, thus further advancing the course of modern cannabis medicine. Kaycha Labs (Kaycha is the Thai word for cannabis) has a vision of a broader healthcare commitment and has been driving the innovations needed to shape the future of modern cannabis medicine through automated, digital technology solutions.
“We’re excited to emphasize our wide-ranging business objective around challenging the way cannabis is tested and marketed between manufacturers, consumers, and patients, with the goal of increasing access, lowering costs, and improving quality,” said Chris Martinez, Kaycha Co-Founder, and President. “As a company with its roots in digital technology, such as our proprietary PureLIMS system, we are committed to delivering breakthrough testing services that will help connect all the points in the care continuum,” says Martinez.
Kaycha Labs includes the company’s specialized hemp testing division, The Hemp Institute of Kaycha Labs, which is the largest cannabis/hemp lab in the United States with over 20,000 tests completed monthly and the recipient of 15 Emerald Awards. Kaycha’s process controls meet ISO 17025, AOAC, cGMP, and GLP requirements, plus they provide QR Codes, 48 Hour Rush Results, Industry-Leading Robotics, Proprietary PureLIMS, Client Portal, No Contracts, Live Sample Tracking, and Exceptional Customer Service. Kaycha Labs currently has nine labs in eight states with more states ready to come on board by 2020.
“We have a reputation for doing things differently and our vision is more expansive than just solving today’s cannabis testing problems. Our foresight and ingenuity have moved us from a stand-alone laboratory to a new, high-functioning business model which operates nine labs in eight states, setting us on a course to advance modern cannabis medicine. While unparalleled diagnostics remain at our core, our goal is to help empower consumers, patients, and industry partners alike. Our full-service offering goes beyond our labs; our people and expertise are impacting every area of cannabis medicine,” says Martinez.
