Coming on the heels of PathogenDx’s successful $3.4 million capital raise announced last week, Patel said in making the announcement, “Given the light speed in which West Coast cannabis companies must come into compliance with new and more rigorous regulations in California and other states, we view the NCIA Cannabis Business Summit & Expo as an important venue to meet customers face-to-face, and share best practices on how to help labs rapidly refill dispensary supplies with high quality, safe and tested product, by insuring all cannabis products on shelves meet or exceeds regulatory demands. Our environmental screening technology will provide growers and cultivators an early warning detection mechanism of contamination hotspots within the cultivation facility, to assist them in mitigating outbreak, important to product safety and their bottom line.”

Joining Patel in San Jose will be Jeff Ryskamp, CFO, a senior executive with more than 20 years of experience in the manufacturing, technology, aerospace, and transportation industries, and Mary Myers, National Sales Director, who brings over two decades in sales and marketing in biotech and diagnostics arenas. She joins PathogenDx from Romer Labs, where she sold microbial and mycotoxin products to cannabis labs. Booth staff will include Magdalena Kedzior, Scientist/Technical Trainer for PathogenDx whose focus is training new clientele on the PathogenDx system.
