A Laboratory Information Management System ( LIMS), sometimes referred to as a Laboratory Information System (LIS) or Laboratory Management System (LMS), is a software-based laboratory and information management system with features that support a modern laboratory's operations.  PharmWare™ is a specialized LIMS.  

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. 

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"

PharmLabs LLC was founded in 2011 in San Diego and has become the premier cannabis testing laboratory in Southern California bringing 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 be pointed to PharmWare™'s business solution software.
