Leveraging Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) to Provide Standardization, Efficiency and Cost Savings will focus on today's modern laboratory, where resources are often stretched, as laboratories struggle to manage multiple priorities, meet regulatory requirements, and contain costs.
This is especially true in Medicinal Cannabis testing laboratories, where it is very important to ensure high quality testing data is being generated and delivered in a timely manner while meeting regulatory requirements and managing cost. Testing is critical in determining product quality, not only for potency cannabinoids and terpenes, but also if any contamination is present from pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals, metals, or biologicals such as bacteria or mold. Many laboratories are also now including genetic testing to identify key genetic traits to guide breeding of advanced cannabis varieties.
This presentation will show laboratory managers and owners how they can utilize a computerized laboratory management system to optimize and standardize laboratory performance, while ensuring a high product quality and profitability. The purpose of the laboratory is to ensure that a consistent, high quality product has been manufactured, and that testing has been completed at each step of the process from raw material to finished product(s). Some of the key benefits of the computerized data management system include positive ID (barcoding/RFID), full traceability, integrated quality control, automated results upload from instruments (eliminating transcription errors), maximized resource utilization, fast turnaround times, automated email and result posting to a secure web portal, which yields accelerated result delivery and higher customer satisfaction. Standardization plays a key role in laboratory testing and is critical to ensuring a safe, reliable, consistent product is produced.
