Hemp testing lab begins operations in Indiana

CARMEL, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Carmel-based Agrozen Life Sciences is expanding its business operations with the launch of Agrozen Labs, which is now a U.S. Department of Agriculture analytical hemp testing laboratory. Agrozen Labs also recently earned Schedule 1 Cannabis Testing certification from the Drug Enforcement Agency and is an approved hemp testing laboratory through the USDA Domestic Hemp Production Program.

Agrozen says it’s now the first cooperative analytical testing lab approved through the Seed Section of the Office of Indiana State Chemist at Purdue University. The announcement follows the USDA approval of the Indiana State Hemp Plan for commercially growing and processing hemp. 

The state of Indiana has licensed 280 growers who farm more than 8,900 acres of hemp, which are required to have their hemp crops tested by labs, of which Agrozen is now among the 50 labs qualified to do so in the country. 

“Our hemp testing process and analytical equipment are managed by a pharmaceutical scientist with more than three decades of experience, and our lab can now produce consistent and reliable results for farmers, extractors, formulators and finished goods suppliers,” said Brian Schroeder, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer for Agrozen Life Sciences.
