31 Aug 2018


LabVantage Solutions, the leading provider of laboratory informatics solutions and services providing purpose-built LIMS solutions that allow labs to go live faster and at a lower total cost, has previewed its latest industry accelerator, LabVantage Cannabis, at the 2018 Cannabis Science Conference, held August 27-29, 2018 in Portland, OR. LabVantage Cannabis is a turnkey laboratory information management system (LIMS) that is designed specifically for cannabis testing and certification. LabVantage Cannabis delivers needed functionality today, yet is easily configurable to stay current as regulatory, legal, and commercial requirements evolve.

The U.S. cannabis industry is growing rapidly, with medical marijuana programs operational in 29 states and nine states allowing access to legalized recreational cannabis. Both medical and recreational cannabis must be tested in certified laboratory settings to ensure that it meets high standards of quality and purity; however, states have different and changing requirements governing this testing. Globally, the legal recreational and medicinal cannabis market is also growing, and the regulatory landscape is similarly diverse.

“Our pioneering purpose-built LIMS solutions are specifically tailored for industries where laboratory-certified quality and consistency are essential. We are proud to introduce LabVantage Cannabis to meet the needs of this rapidly growing sector, where our track record of optimized functionality, implementation speed and cost effectiveness, and system flexibility are especially needed,” says Ram Velidi, President at LabVantage Solutions.

“A pre-configured LIMS deploys up to 75% faster than a conventional system and its purposeful functionality reinforces a consistent, industry-standard workflow to achieve greater efficiency and productivity. LabVantage Cannabis is well-equipped to help cannabis providers manage the rapidly evolving industry environment, providing cost-effective solutions for today with the flexibility to easily incorporate changes over time.”
