Automation in the Cannabis & Hemp Testing Laboratories of Tomorrow
Speaking in January 2021, Stephen Goldman, Chief Science Officer at Kaycha Labs presented his talk on automation in the cannabis testing laboratory.
Abstract: Cannabis and hemp laboratories must deal with regulations that are ever evolving, customers that are maturing quickly, and competition that is becoming more aggressive. To stay relevant, automation is one area that laboratories can improve in. Automation enables cost cutting areas which can provide flexibility in financial margins during times of downward facing pricing pressure. It also gives benefits to laboratory customers and can assist in achieving regulations and accreditations. This presentation will focus on software automation and equipment automation proving that automation is required for the competitive laboratories of tomorrow.
