Wilmington, Delaware – August 23, 2018, CloudLIMS, a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), and Confident CannabisTM, a software for labs and all members of the cannabis supply chain, now offer an integrated solution that provides cannabis testing laboratories with a robust testing, analytical, and reporting tool. The tool helps manage and track clients, samples, test orders, and testing workflows with ease. The objective of the integration is to leverage Confident Cannabis’s client portal and CloudLIMS’s LIMS functionality to address the entire spectrum of the cannabis testing workflows.
In any state with a regulated cannabis industry, all cannabis products are required to go through laboratory testing. This is a critical component to the regulations, as it protects patients and consumers from buying products that are toxic or do not contain the amount of medicine they claim on the labels.
Cannabis is perhaps the most regulated consumer product in the world, and lab testing requirements are a major part of that. While every product must go through a cannabis lab before being sold, not every cannabis lab has the resources they need to manage the required workflow the regulations have created. In fact, there has never been a software solution created specifically for cannabis labs, until now. Today, with the launch of CloudLIMS and Confident Cannabis integrated product, it will allow cannabis testing laboratories to meet a state’s regulatory compliance requirements, and effectively manage laboratory samples and tests. Furthermore, it also allows them to organize client and billing information in a single, integrated software solution, providing a seamless experience for growers and testing laboratories.
Key highlights of the integration for managing the cannabis testing workflows are:
- Testing laboratory clients can conveniently place test orders through Confident Cannabis’s well designed client portal by picking the desired cannabis testing package(s) offered by the laboratory
- Testing laboratories can accession samples, execute comprehensive testing workflows, and can enter test results in a batch in CloudLIMS
- Results can be directly posted to seed-to-sale software such as MetrcTM and BioTrack THC® to remain compliant with state regulations
- Professional and attractive Certificate of Analysis (CoA) reports can be generated for test and laboratory operations
- Test reports can be published in real-time for a laboratory’s client to access over the portal
“A well-integrated laboratory workflow is crucial for a cannabis testing laboratory. Complete sample tracking, result reporting, and pushing data to state regulatory software is essential for its operations,” said Arun Apte, Chief Executive Officer, CloudLIMS. “The robust integrated solution is aimed at delivering efficiency, performance and compliance,” he continued. “CloudLIMS’ ability to deliver enhanced laboratory management functionality combined with Confident Cannabis, made this a well-aligned collaboration,”said Stephen Albarran, Chief Executive Officer, Confident CannabisTM. “Not only are we helping testing laboratories increase productivity, we are empowering consumers and buyers to take more informed decisions through the use of available data, bringing transparency to the system,” he said.
