    Biography

      Dr. Susan Audino is a chemist/chemometrician and independent consultant (S.Audino & Associates, LLC)  to chemical and biological laboratories.  She is an Analytical Chemist and chemometrician.   As a contractor for Accreditation Bodies, Dr. Audino assesses laboratories to and is an instructor for multiple ISO/IEC standards including ISO/IEC 17025.  Dr. Audino is on the Board of Directors of the Center for Research on Environmental Medicine and Board of Associates of Hood College. She is highly visible in the cannabis industry where she is a recognized leader for the development of official/consensus test methods and quality in cannabis laboratory science. She has been a member of technical expert review and advisory panels, currently serves as the Science Advisor to the AOAC International Cannabis Analytical Science Program (CASP),  advises several cannabis testing laboratories, private and non-profit cannabis organizations, and recently joined the Analytical Cannabis Editorial Advisory Board. Dr. Audino has chaired the AOAC cannabis advisory panel and analytical cannabis working groups, was a member of the NCIA Guide for Laboratory Testing, has consulted to many organizations including regulatory bodies, and has been an invited speaker at numerous domestic and international scientific conferences. She has been on faculty at Teachable Medicine where she now serves as an advisor.  Dr. Audino is principal of multiple independent companies, has several patents pending and is a contributing author to Cannabis Laboratory Fundamentals to by published by Springer-Nature in early 2021.


    Abstract

    An essential tool in the modern laboratory, the Laboratory Information Management System is embraced for its utility to acquire and mine simple to complex data. The cannabis laboratories have come to rely on the LIMS to track and manage a given customer sample from the laboratory reception to sample destruction.  The regulatory environment broadens the overall sample management to include traceability of a sample from the time of its cultivation clear through to its customer purchase of a finished product on a dispensary shelf.  Known as “seed to sale”, the life of a cannabis plant or cannabis-derived material is long and circuitous where inconsistent or negligent management that could lead to license revocation.  The LIMS functionality is designed to address specific laboratory needs to ensure the cannabis sample handling has met all laboratory and regulatory accountability requirements, including ISO/IEC 17025.  This presentation will provide a useful overview of the applicability of LIMS in the third party testing laboratory from sample intake to disposal.  Of particular interest will be discussion on the LIMS role in quality control in attestation of the veracity of a test result before it is released to a customer.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify multiple points where LIMS can maintain accountability to ISO/IEC 17025 document control requirements, Quality Control Requirements, and dissemination of data to third part regulatory bodies

    2. Understand specific ISO/IEC 17025:2017 clauses that specify requirements for Laboratory Information Management Systems

    3. Understand that LIMS is a tool and must be treated appropriately; it does not replace appropriate scientific discussion or interpretation
