Why choose Atlas Labs FL, LLC

Atlas Labs FL, LLC

We bring pharmaceutical quality testing to the hemp industry. Unlike marijuana testing labs, we put hemp first with a particular focus on the customer experience – you don’t go to the back of the line just because you need hemp tested – it’s all we do!

Evan Parnell

Evan Parnell

Founder, Managing Partner

After serving in the US Navy, Evan worked as a technician, operations manager, and quality manager in the pharmaceutical services industry, focusing on microbial load testing during production.  As cannabis legalization swept the east coast, his lab expanded their service offerings and was able to gain a licence to test Cannabis and Hemp in Maryland.  After four years running the lab's daily operations and overseeing the quality assurance program, he took advantage of an opportunity to move to Florida and start a hemp focused testing laboratory.
