PharmWare™ came to life through collaboration between PharmLabs LLC and 42+0 Technologies, creating the standard for cannabis analytics and software solutions designed specifically for cannabis testing laboratories. The four year partnership between Greg Magdoff, founder and owner of the cannabis testing and analysis laboratories PharmLabs LLC, and the software engineering team lead by Emanuele Tozzato culminated on January 2015 at the first annual Emerald Conference with the announcement of 42+0 Technologies and the release of PharmWare™ came as a response to the increasing magnitude in cannabis regulation for laboratory testing.
Dr. John Abrams, founder of Abrams Bio-consulting, a cannabis consulting firm specializing in cannabis Antibody and Ethnobotanical research says: "The burgeoning Cannabis industry requires the accurate compilation of large amounts of analytical data to ensure the health and safety of the products we are providing. The PharmWare software platform provides the perfect solution to the Cannabis Testing sector"
Companies in the cannabis space tend to describe themselves as groundbreaking ventures with unique and disruptive ideas. We prefer telling the simple, straightforward story of how we acquired a consolidated knowledge in the domain, solved our own problem and then realized our solution could help other laboratories to work better and contain costs.
The LIMS started small, with the simple idea of entering test results and automatically formatting certificates of analysis. However, as the laboratory gained momentum, new requirements surfaced and better functionalities were implemented, tested and made available to the team and the clients. An early offer of mutual equity swap between PharmLabs LLC and what would become 42+0 Technologies has been decisive to the success of the platform and allowed for a unique opportunity for engagement.
PharmLabs is a self-funded venture: frugality and cost containment were always relevant, so the LIMS took on the responsibility of scaling - achieving large laboratories throughput with a small, well-qualified team. Numbers back the claim: over 20,000 samples in the database, an average of 800 samples entered monthly in 2017 compared to about 200 from 2014 with the same workforce: the multi-disciplined CEO, one patient laboratory director, and one brave sample intake specialist. And, of course a well prepared, automation-obsessed informatics manager.
PharmWare promotes batch operations and low-level integration. Our ideal, most optimized workflow is defined as follows:
Our LIMS is a hosted web application, which gets deployed to private instances to ensure maximum data integrity and performances (each client uses its own database and server). Updates and fixes are automatically propagated to all clients, individually required features are usually distributed with a 'feature flag' (only available to the requester).
A demo version of PharmWare can be found at www.PharmWareApp.com/pages/demo-version, with free access for anyone to explore the platform and quantify the benefits for their business. PharmLabs LLC website is powered by PharmWare and can be found at www.PharmLabsCannabisTesting.com.
PharmLabs LLC was founded in 2011 in San Diego and has become the premier cannabis testing laboratory in Southern California brining reliability and accuracy to cannabis analytics. PharmLabs tests for potency, terpene, residual solvent, pesticides, heavy metals and microbiological contaminates for the cannabis community and beyond.
The reliability and accuracy of the laboratory can also be pointed to PharmWare's business solution software.
** Vial labels are configurable to produce the exact number of annotated labels for the test ordered: for example, a sample requiring potency and terpenes could print WB MST QECHR POT and MST QECHR TERP. This feature doesn't only benefit humans but has been specifically built, in conjunction with the automation API, for sample preparation robots (Obotics).
PharmWare™ was tailored around years of operations at PharmLabs where it's used day and night. It grew into an intelligent assistant, a business solution that maximizes the instrument throughput, not an opinionated software that gets in the way of the user. The team at 42+0 Technologies has been into web application since 1999.
PharmWare™ is a cloud based software that is individually deployed and managed on a private virtual server using a private database with hourly backups to ensure maximum security, privacy and peace of mind of the client. Our platform of choice is Heroku Inc., one of the leader provider of modern cloud computing.Updates to the platform such as bug-fix, improvements and new features are released weekly (unless urgent) and go thought a rigorous testing process on our staging servers. All the changes are communicated in advance to the clients with our newsletter and reported to our technical blog when released.
Potency, Terpene, Microbial, Residual Solvent, Pesticide and Heavy Metals. Eliminates unnecessary error from typos and mix ups at intake.
Post hundreds of testing results from spreadsheets with a few clicks of the mouse.
Post your test results and you are done! The platform automatically creates official COA complete with graphs and compliance labels for clients to print and use immediately.
Send batch text message notifications to clients with aggregated updates on results posted. No waiting and checking on accounts, clients know the minute results are posted in real time.
Enable the Public API to grant third party applications with access to your result database; Private/Authenticated API access coming soon!
Attach sales representatives to tests sales to generate performance metrics and simplify commission payments. Make pay day easy and predictable!
See every test ever run through the laboratory using powerful filters or data dump to spreadsheets to discover correlations in test data.
