Licenses & Accreditation

Established in 2017, Vivariant specializes in analytical chemistry and microbiology testing services. We employ several instruments to conduct our analysis such as HPLC-UV, GIC-FID, HPLC-MS/MS, and ICP-MS, and follow traditional plate-based microbiology methods. Our state-of-the-art laboratory is conveniently five kms north of Pearson International Airport, in Mississauga, ON.

We hold various licenses & accreditation as part of our quality system. We were issued an Analytical Testing license under Health Canada’s Cannabis Regulations in 2019. Additionally, we are proud to have achieved the performance benchmark of ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation by CALA; the international standard for which labs must be accredited to be recognized as technically competent, impartial, and consistent in their operations. Our diverse and capable team consistently provides precise and accurate results, on time, using validated methods. You can find a copy of our Analytical Testing License here.

We also hold a Containment Level 2 (CL2) Pathogen and Toxin License from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). To evaluate products for microbial pathogens, we need to maintain cultured organisms such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Staph. Aureus as positive controls in our analysis. A laboratory needs to be biosafety certified by Health Canada before it can source such cultures and conduct these operations. These licenses & accreditation are a necessary box to check when choosing a testing partner.
