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.

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 using a REST API. This enables laboratories to seamlessly manage critical business metrics and streamline their business operations. The CloudLIMS REST API empowers CloudLIMS to seamlessly communicate and exchange data with other systems. It enables labs to effortlessly integrate their data with external tools, automate processes and streamline their operations.

Integration with QuickBooks: CloudLIMS supports integration with third-party accounting software such as QuickBooks Intuit. Streamline your accounting processes and boost productivity with seamless integration between our LIMS system and QuickBooks Intuit. Our integration simplifies data transfer, eliminating manual entry and ensuring accurate and efficient financial management. Sync invoices, payments, and customer data effortlessly and focus on what matters most – delivering exceptional laboratory services.
