AirMed Ecosystem: Darwin Chambers

Darwin Chambers designs, manufacturers and installs controlled environmental chambers that offer precise control of temperature, humidity, gas, and lighting. Stock and custom chambers with highly energy efficient components are available for a wide variety of applications including cannabis production. Certified technicians recommend solutions and provide critical support.

The drying process is critical to maintaining proper levels of cannabinoids and preventing mold and mildew. Darwin Chambers provides cannabis drying rooms designed for the replicable drying of cannabis. The company manufactures and installs cannabis drying rooms that can vary temperature, additive humidity, and dehumidification at programmed (ramped) levels. This enables lot-to-lot consistency whether the drying happens in humid, coastal areas or dry, high altitude areas. Product can also be stored long term with precise levels of humidity to prevent mold or brittleness. Darwin utilizes a proprietary method of cooling, the PFTCU, (precision fluid temperature control unit) to precisely control temperature. Unlike typical refrigeration units, the PFTCU enables fast replacement (30 minutes) of all cooling components as well as redundancy when ordered as such. Exclusive Antimicrobial Coating on door handle to reduce the spread of bacteria and pathogens. Stable temperature preserves cannabinoids well. Low light levels are also important for proper drying of grown plants. Darwin Chambers offers options to control light levels along with many other chamber options including: Black out strip curtains (to prevent unwanted light infiltration when people must enter the chamber), data loggers, chart recorders, shelving and curing racks.

Darwin Chambers are ideal for cannabis production, and AirMed is proud to be the exclusive representative for Darwin Chambers in Canada.

New AirMed version lays groundwork for October 17 Cannabis Act changes

A new version of AirMed seed-to-sale software was released October 16, 2019. This is a substantial build that lays the groundwork for the October 17 changes to the Cannabis Act and CTLS reporting.

The new version offers significant updates to the Received Products section of the cloud-based application including the ability to receive into the facility any type of product (edibles are coming soon) either bulk or packaged. The system now allows product to be transferred to a processor and packaged up, then the packaged material can be received back into the facility.

For received products, users now have the ability to add items to an existing lot, back-date inventory adds, and update finished/unfinished designation for new Health Canada regulations. We’ve also added an extraction material type category for new Cannabis Tracking and Licensing System (CTLS) reporting requirements, plus the ability to move all plants in batch and print a timeline report for batch details.

If you are a current AirMed customer, please explore the new features in your sandbox service, and let us know if you have any questions by contacting your customer service representative.

AirMed supports wholesaling to provincial distributors

AirMed Cloud seed-to-sale software supports wholesale selling and shipping from licensed producers to other LPs and from LPs to provincial distribution centres.

The software offers full functionality for multi-level packaging with layered barcoding that meets GS-1 barcode standards. LPs using AirMed can assemble retail-ready individual product packages using a ‘master case’ system and identify and track products at each packaging level.

"Our master case processing lets you use layered barcoding for individual containers through to cases of multiple containers," noted Justin Hearn, President and CEO of AirMed Canada Systems Inc. "AirMed’s track-and-trace system allows retail packages to be traced to the lot or batch and ultimately back to the original genetic material. And AirMed’s comprehensive multi-step recall process completely automates recalls if they are ever needed."

AirMed software offers full SKU and barcode management that supports GS-1 barcoding standards. Pricing can be set at the package or master case SKU, and custom pricing can be set for specific SKUs by customer. The software offers features for creating and processing the orders as well as fulfilling and shipping them to provincial agencies.

"We're proud to be supporting our customers with full master case inventory control, GS1 integration, comprehensive wholesale order management, efficient fulfillment and tracking, and compliance reporting," said Hearn. "AirMed’s wholesale distribution module is helping LPs produce, prepare, sell and ship hundreds of thousands of products to the recreational market right across Canada."
