Her unique career combines a Ph.D. with 20+ years of experience in working in laboratories and leveraging data management tools, LIMS and automation. These tools enhance data quality, facilitate regulatory compliance, increase productivity, and the ability better manage laboratory data and information. She has co-authored a book on LIMS, and authored over 5 dozen scientific, LIMS and informatics articles in peer reviewed journals. Dr. Paszko has been helping analytical testing laboratories understand regulatory compliance requirements (ISO 17025), leverage LIMS and automation to increase productivity, throughput and profitability. This approach has helped customers to outperform competitors with best in class Laboratory Information Management Systems Technology, Automation, Systems Integration to offer insights into laboratory and business intelligence.


    Abstract

    In today’s modern laboratory, 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 in which it is very important to ensure high quality testing data is being generated and delivered in a timely manner to those that require this information, 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, 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 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 (barcode/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 resulting in accelerated result delivery and higher customer satisfaction. Standardization plays a key role Laboratory testing and is critical to ensuring a safe, reliable, consistent product is produced.

    Learning Objectives:

    • To understand the value proposition of implementing automation into a regulated environment
    • To learn how leveraging automation tools can not only standardize processes but cut costs
    • To see that deploying flexible solutions can facilitate regulatory compliance quickly and efficiently
