A Secure, Configurable LIMS for Cannabis Testing Laboratories

A LIMS to Automate and Streamline Cannabis Testing Laboratory Operations

ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Compliant Cloud-based Cannabis LIMS

Easily Configure Cannabis Laboratory Workflows using CloudLIMS,
a Cannabis LIMS Offered as SaaS

Cannabis laboratories test for cannabinoid levels, pesticide levels, terpenes, moisture, heavy metal, fungi and molds. Laboratories adhere to regulatory guidelines that demand strict accounting for every gram of the sample right from reception, consumption for testing to sales and disposal. Therefore, an automated workflow in cannabis laboratories should support sample traceability in compliance with state and local laws. It is very important for labs to maintain the chain-of-custody which records the disposition of a specimen documenting the personnel involved in collection, handling of samples to their analysis. Such a workflow can withstand regular court scrutiny. CloudLIMS helps you automate regulatory compliance requirements in the laboratory with its configurable and expandable data model. With its extensive and configurable features for client and sample management, you can store and report on data generated from your experimental workflows.

Supports management of QC samples and their test results. You can validate each test run by comparing the test results of QC samples with the test samples, helping you identify analytical errors.


You can leverage CloudLIMS’ robust trend analysis feature to track and visualize variations in your lab processes effectively. Identify patterns and anomalies swiftly, anticipating issues and potential cost savings through proactive measures. Improve testing reliability, assure product quality, and enhance your lab’s credibility with optimized processes.

Trend Analysis

Supports management of the calibration records of analytical equipment, sending out maintenance or calibration alert notifications, ensuring timely calibration of all equipment.

Supports management of documents such as Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), validated standard test methods, drawings, manuals, and enables their access to authorized personnel.

Manage training of laboratory personnel and their professional competency, notify staff about upcoming training(s), and generate custom training reports in PDF or MS Excel file format.

Advantages of CloudLIMS Cannabis LIMS

Follow Regulatory Compliance

Follow ISO/IEC 17025:2017, 21 CFR part 11, GLP, audit trail, state and local regulations.

Manage Samples and Test Results

Manage cannabis samples, tests, and multi-analyte test results. Import test results of multiple analytes from a file.

Generate Certificates of Analysis (CoA)

Generate personalized Certificates of Analysis (CoA) containing sample information, test details, and test results for multiple analytes.

Instrument and Software Integration

Supports integration with analytical instruments and software via CSV/XLS files and REST API respectively, ensuring data integrity.

Instrument & Software Integration

Cannabis testing laboratories receive hundreds of samples and generate massive volumes of analytical data on a day-to-day basis. Manual transfer of data from analytical instruments to a LIMS is error-prone and time-consuming. For effective management of growing data volumes and laboratory automation, instrument and software integration is indispensable. Instrument and software integration facilitates data transfer from analytical instruments and software to a LIMS respectively, thereby eliminating chances of transcription errors, data redundancy, and ensuring data integrity. Furthermore, it helps in automating laboratory workflows, thereby saving time and resources, reducing turnaround times, and enhancing efficiency.

How CloudLIMS Supports Instrument and Software Integration?

CloudLIMS supports instrument and software integration in the following ways:

  • Instrument Integration:CSV/XLS is a standard output file type generated by most analytical instruments. The CSV file mapping enables data to be imported from multiple instruments into a LIMS. CloudLIMS periodically reads instrument generated CSV files and maps the headers present in the files with the correct fields in CloudLIMS thereby transferring the analytical data to CloudLIMS seamlessly.
  • Software Integration:CloudLIMS supports integration with state tracking systems such as Metrc and third-party billing software such as QuickBooks using a REST API. This enables laboratories to seamlessly manage critical business metrics billing and streamline their business operations.

An All-in-One, Purpose-Built LIMS for Cannabis Testing Labs

Batch and Sample Management

Supports management of batches derived from harvest lots and process lots. CloudLIMS supports automatic sample accessioning, automatic assignment of sample lot ID to the incoming sample lots, maintaining sample Chain-of-Custody (CoC), and maintaining an account of every milligram of samples.

Test Management

Supports qualitative and quantitative tests for multiple analytes such as Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD), etc. CloudLIMS maintains test Chain-of-Custody (CoC), supports importing of analyte test results from an instrument file, and automatically updates the sample quantity depending on the sample usage in tests.

Track Turnaround Time (TAT)

Supports monitoring of test turnaround time (TAT) based on the test start date and the test completion date, helping you establish if the test TAT is under the threshold and therefore evaluate laboratory performance and efficiency.

Client Portal

Enables your clients to place tests requests for multiple samples, view test results in real-time, download Certificates of Analysis (CoA) and invoices. This helps in reducing turnaround time and increasing customer satisfaction.

Services and Billing Management

Supports management of laboratory services such as sample test requests, besides catalog creation with defined pricing for each service offered by your laboratory.

Lab Inventory Management

Manage your laboratory inventory data for vital supplies, reagents and consumables along with vendor details. Schedule timely re-orders upon stock depletion.
