The Deibel Difference

Deibel Laboratories began in the early 1960’s in Wisconsin and was one of the first contract food testing labs in the United States. We have since grown to 15 strategically-located labs across North America and are proud to announce our latest testing laboratories specifically for the medicinal plants industry, Deibel Bioscience. Deibel Bioscience has laboratories in Santa Cruz, CA, Lincolnwood, IL, with Hood River, OR opening in July of 2021.  

Any lab should be able to offer accurate testing at a fair price with reasonable turnaround time. Applying our 60 years of regulatory experience in food safety testing to the cannabis industry, customized service and exceptional Technical Services set Deibel Bioscience apart from the competition. We work with clients from R&D through compliance samples. If there is ever an issue with your results, you are not on your own. You can count on Deibel Bioscience to work with you every step of the way until there is a solution. 

We are a family owned and operated corporation. Our size offers economies of scale that are reflected in our service and pricing - we treat our clients like family. Our clients have direct access to our Lab Management, Executive Leadership and Technical Services just by calling, texting or emailing them directly. You will never be sent to a call center when you work with Deibel Bioscience.

Our History

Deibel Laboratories was founded by Dr. Robert Deibel, one of America’s foremost experts in Food Safety, in 1967. He is one of the founding fathers of HACCP, developed the first ever “rapid” microbiological test for Salmonella, has published over 67 scientific papers and has served as a legal expert in many court cases. To carry on that legacy and passion for client service, Dr. Deibel’s son, C.T. Deibel, was named President of Deibel Laboratories in 2005. C.T., a food microbiologist by training, is a food safety expert in his own right, having testified in numerous legal cases as an expert witness, including congressional testimony. C.T. is also a HACCP expert and Lead Instructor. Seeing the natural overlap of food safety best practices and testing procedures for the medicinal plants industry, C.T. created Deibel Bioscience. In 2020, Deibel Bioscience of California and Deibel Bioscience of Illinois were opened as testing labs for the medicinal plants industry. In 2021, Deibel Bioscience of Oregon opened with plans for additional Bioscience labs across the US.
