The legalization of cannabis or marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes in the US and some other parts of the globe has accelerated the growth of cannabis testing laboratories. The day-to-day operational challenges of cannabis testing laboratories include managing cannabis samples and multi-analyte tests, test Chain of Custody (CoC), automating complete laboratory workflows, and meeting evolving regulatory guidelines. The webinar encompasses how a LIMS is crucial for addressing these challenges. Besides, the webinar highlights how a cloud-based LIMS is a technologically-advanced and cost effective alternative to traditional on-premise LIMS.
Recommended attendees include laboratory directors, managers and quality managers of cannabis testing laboratories.
