Botanacor with Agricor and SC Labs

The Most Trusted Cannabis Laboratory Network

The Future of Hemp Testing is Here

Botanacor and our sister cannabis testing lab, Agricor, have joined forces with SC Laboratories, Inc. based in Santa Cruz, CA, to provide cannabis and hemp brands with access to the most comprehensive, industry-forward testing solutions in North America.

The combination brings together three of the longest standing and most respected cannabis and hemp testing organizations in the U.S. and forms the foundation of a national testing network. The combination will bring value to both the hemp and cannabis industries, ranging from access to a broader range of testing resources, improved data delivery, innovative science, instrument redundancy and increased testing capacity, and improved operations to accelerate turnaround times.

Botanacor and SC Laboratories have well-earned reputations for delivering high-efficacy results, through a ‘science-first’ approach to product quality, safety, and compliance. With operations in Colorado, California, and Oregon, the newly combined operation is uniquely positioned to support hemp producers within the U.S. and throughout the world.

We’re excited to grow with our customers and industry, alike – and look forward to working with you to help build your brand of safe and compliant products.
