Our gas chromatography machine is definitely the real deal. We don't have a mass spec, nor do our friends at A360. But a mass spec is completely unnecessary for the analyses that we're performing. In fact, gas and liquid (which A360 uses), are the two methodologies that the UN recommends for cannabis testing.
As for the rumor that you heard, there is no truth to it. HT solicited us. We tested all flower and concentrate entries for potency. We even tested some of the concentrates for butane residue to help them determine if certain entries were really solvent-less.
