Live Webinar: How to Meet Cannabis Testing Standards and Regulatory Requirements with LIMS


CloudLIMS is pleased to host a complimentary live webinar entitled “How to meet cannabis testing standards and regulatory requirements with LIMS” on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 at 9 AM PDT. The webinar will be presented by Mr. Stephen Goldman, Laboratory Director at PhytaTechSM CO LLC, Denver, Colorado, United States.

With the legalization of cannabis or marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes in the United States and several parts of the world, the cannabis or marijuana testing market is expected to grow exponentially. Present-day cannabis testing laboratories need to conduct proficiency tests and tests for the identification and quantification of multiple analytes such as cannabinoids, potential contaminants, and other compounds or organisms relevant to public health such as pesticides, microorganisms (for example, bacterial and fungal species), volatile organic compounds, heavy metals, water activity/moisture content, plant compounds, for example, terpenes, etc. Besides, they require to follow regulatory guidelines such as ISO 17025, 21 CFR Part 11, GLP, etc. Managing test data, automating complete laboratory workflows, and following fast evolving regulatory requirements are the major challenges faced by cannabis testing laboratories.

This 45 minute webinar enables in understanding how a LIMS can accelerate efficiency of cannabis testing laboratories by automating testing workflows, beginning with sample collection, managing tests and test results, maintaining test Chain of Custody (CoC), generating test reports, to sample disposal. A LIMS can play a pivotal role in keeping an account of the entire quantity of sample(s) received, used and disposed, which is imperative for cannabis testing laboratories. Additionally, this webinar highlights how a LIMS is crucial for reducing turnaround time, streamlining laboratory operations, maintaining data integrity, reducing operational costs, and following regulatory guidelines seamlessly.

Key Takeaways:

  • What are the challenges faced by cannabis testing laboratories in meeting regulatory compliance and quality standards?
  • How does a LIMS address the challenges to meet regulatory compliance and quality standards for cannabis testing
  • Case Study: How does a LIMS improve laboratory efficiency and productivity at PhytaTech

Recommended attendees include laboratory directors, managers and quality managers of cannabis testing laboratories.
