CloudLIMS is excited to participate in the 2022 AOAC INTERNATIONAL Hybrid Annual Meeting & Exposition to be held from August 26 – September 1, 2022, at Westin Kierland, Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.
Martha Hernandez, Scientist at CloudLIMS.com, is delivering a talk titled “How to Comply With the USDA’s New Hemp Testing Rules With Ease” at the event. Martha is delivering the talk on August 29, 2022, from 2:00 - 2:15 PM MST. The talk delineates the new federal hemp testing rules and the operational changes hemp testing labs need to make to comply with the new rules. Furthermore, the talk also discusses how a laboratory software for CBD/THC laboratories can enable hemp testing labs to meet regulatory compliance and quality standards seamlessly. The talk is a part of the session titled “A Higher Quality of Testing: Advancing Laboratory Analyses of Cannabis” scheduled for August 29, 2022, from 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM MST.
You can register now to pre-book a meeting with us and save time.
Martha is a chemist with expertise in diverse areas of analytical chemistry. She had worked as an analyst at a licensed 3rd party analytical laboratory where she focused on developing and validating analytical methods for bioequivalence studies. Later, she had served as a quality control expert in the analytical domain and as a monitor in clinical trials. Her interest in the clinical industry led her to be a part of two of the biggest hospitals in Mexico where she gained expertise in hematology, microbiology, and blood banking. Later, she became a member of the team of forensic chemical experts and started working from day one as a specialist in narcotics and drugs. This enabled her to gain rich experience in GC-MS, FTIR, HPLC-MS/MS, ICP-MS, and other analytical techniques for the separation, detection, and quantification of different molecules such as cannabinoids. She had participated in multiple oral trials defending her legal opinions and worked as an expert consultant. She had worked on the synthesis of small molecules for testing them on multi-drug resistant bacteria and mycobacteria, further developing her analytical skills in column chromatography, thin-layer chromatography, microbiology, and compound elucidation by NMR and HRMS. She carried out a research stay at the University of Barcelona with the organic synthesis team. She had also worked on natural products in France and presented her work at conferences in the USA and France. She received awards and accolades for her exceptional work. She has participated in several conferences as a moderator as well.
Martha holds a bachelor’s degree in Clinical Chemistry from the Faculty of Medicine UANL and a master’s degree in Pharmacy from the Faculty of Chemical Sciences UANL, Mexico.
AOAC INTERNATIONAL brings together government, industry, and academia to establish standard analytical methods to assure the safety and integrity of foods, cannabis, and other products that impact public health across the globe. The event provides opportunities for businesses to meet scientific and regulatory experts, for scientists to build professional expertise and share best practices, and for regulators to leverage stakeholder collaboration to improve compliance and public safety. The 6-day hybrid event features talks by industry leaders, poster presentations, and exhibitions by several vendors, and offers unparalleled networking and collaboration opportunities. The event provides a platform for the global analytical science community to identify new technologies and emerging analytical needs and suggest actions to meet them.
We look forward to seeing you in Scottsdale!
