Tess Eidom PhD, PCQI, Assessing and Addressing Microbial Risks to Cannabis Patients and Consumers

October 2023

Tess Eidem earned her Ph.D. in Microbiology discovering novel antimicrobial compounds against bacterial pathogens, and she has continued to expand her knowledge in and outside of the lab, building a strong background in manufacturing, product safety and quality, and microbial detection and prevention measures with a focus on controlled environment agriculture (CEA) settings. Dr. Eidem is a Senior Researcher at the University of Colorado Boulder in the Aerobiology and Disinfection Laboratory investigating airborne molds, allergens, and pathogens, where she works to uncover new methods to kill and deactivate microorganisms and their harmful bioactive agents. As the Chief Scientist at her company Rogue Micro LLC, she consults with CEA manufacturers, regulators, and laboratories in the cannabis space to understand and overcome microbial challenges that pose a risk to cannabis plants, products, workers, and consumers.
