Cannabis LIMS Software - Manage Data, Digitize Lab Operations, & Meet Regulatory Compliance
A Free, Secure, Configurable, and Scalable LIMS for Cannabis and Hemp Testing Labs
With many states in the US legalizing medicinal and recreational cannabis, there has been a substantial increase in businesses offering cannabis testing. The federal legalization of hemp and hemp-derived products in the US has accelerated the growth of hemp testing labs. The state and federal regulations for cannabis and hemp labs, respectively, together with the ISO/IEC 17025 guidelines that define the general requirements for cannabis and hemp testing labs, pose challenges. Additionally, labs need to account for each gram of sample and report test results to regulatory agencies. By upholding these quality standards and regulatory requirements, cannabis and hemp testing laboratories contribute to the overall legitimacy and reputation of the industry, ultimately fostering trust and confidence among both consumers and regulatory authorities.
Cannabis and hemp testing laboratories must establish comprehensive workflows to uphold sample traceability throughout its lifecycle & generate high-quality test results. This includes maintaining the chain of custody, following standard operating protocols, and monitoring each step in the workflow for pitfalls. Additionally, managing the training and competency of lab personnel, scheduling instrument calibration and maintenance, and managing lab inventory is crucial. This roughly translates into humongous paperwork, which, when unmaintained, could possibly lead to legal ramifications and deterioration of quality.
