Panel Discussion: The Peaks and Valleys of Starting a Cannabis Testing Facility
As regulated medical and recreational markets continue their expansion within the United States, all with unique regulatory environments, so does the growing need for reputable and reliable testing laboratories. Though regulatory structures are beginning to coalesce around a common set of standards, variation still remains, creating unique challenges for each new lab, whether a completely new business entity or an expansion of an existing multi-state operator (MSO).
Scientific entrepreneurs on this panel will use their experience of being integral members of multiple start-up labs on both the East and West coasts to discuss the commonalities that all testing labs face, and dive into some of the more important points of emphasis for newly operating labs.
During this webinar we will discuss:
- Tips for achieving ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation efficiently
- Strategies around choosing instrumentation and getting operational quickly
- The importance of building a diverse team from a number of backgrounds
- Upcoming challenges facing the testing segment of the cannabis industry
