Lev Spivak-Birndorf Invited to Speak at University of Minnesota Duluth

Isotopes: The Secret Chemical Language of the Universe.

PSI Labs firmly believes that cutting edge research science is essential for innovation in the laboratory.

Earlier this month, Lev collaborated on a project at Indiana University with Christian Schardt, a professor of geological sciences from the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMN).

Professor Schardt recently invited Lev to UMN’s Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences to speak about his postdoctoral research into the use of Nickel (Ni) isotopes to track the cycling of Ni between the crust, natural waters and organisms.

Lev presented some of his recent work, developing trace chemical and isotopic proxies to investigate the chemistry of the oceans on ancient Earth.

Why Should Patients Demand Lab-Tested Medical Cannabis?

Patients need to know their medicine is safe.

Lab testing can help assure a patient’s medicine is free from residual solvents, pesticides, mold, mildew and fungus.

Patients need to know their medicine is consistent and reliable.

A lab test will accurately determine the cannabinoid and terpenoid profile of a patient’s medicine, to help inform a patient about its medical efficacy and potency. That way, a patient can reliably determine their appropriate dosage needs. Dosage is especially important for cannabis-infused products like tinctures, edibles and beverages.

Patients need to know they’re receiving high-quality medicine.

Lab testing helps stop the guessing game, and lets the patient know they’ve actually received the medicine they were sold.
