Anresco Laboratories offers quantification of the 2 alkaloids primarily responsible for the effects of kratom.
Anresco Laboratories utilizes LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS via the “QuEChERS” method of extraction to analyze for ~300 different compounds at a limit of detection (LOD) of roughly 0.01ppm. This is the same pesticide residue screen that is used by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) to regulate pesticide limits in organic products. Clients also have the option to run a single MRA by either GC-MS/MS (150+ compounds) or LC-MS/MS (100+ compounds).
Anresco Laboratories utilizes inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to screen for the “Big 4” heavy metals commonly found in kratom.
