Kratom, or Mitragyna speciosa, is a tropical tree in the Rubiaceae (coffee) family native to Southeast Asia. This botanical gem has been a longstanding part of indigenous cultures' traditions, but it has only recently garnered international recognition.
Types of Kratom Testing
The rigorous analysis also includes purity testing for contaminants like heavy metals, including manganese, pesticides, and residual solvents, guaranteeing safe products. Collaborating with renowned Kratom researcher Dr. Christopher McCurdy, ACS is exploring certified reference materials for additional alkaloids found in human plasma after Kratom ingestion. The program instills peace of mind in consumers, supporting an industry built on trust, quality, and transparency.

How Accurate Is Kratom Testing?
Potency testing for kratom’s eight principal alkaloids is highly accurate when using Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LCMS), as chemists can quantify the measurement to 1/10th of 1% and 1/10th of a milligram and in parts per billion.
