Plant DNA Testing


Using next-generation sequencing, our laboratory provides species-level identification for all of your botanical samples. Our database is complete with vouchered and verified materials for sample comparison, which allows us to provide the most accurate identification. We specialize in uncovering the picture behind your specimen, including identifying multiple species, hybrids and mixtures of species. When used in conjunction with other traditional identification methods such as chemical testing, DNA testing can ensure the identity of a sample.

Our unbiased approach allows identifying all components of your materials, even unexpected ones, providing confidence and a level of quality service available nowhere else.

Some common specimens we receive for testing are:

  • Echinacea
  • Rhodiola rosea
  • Ginger
  • Ashwagandha
