[[File:2020 happy-new-year.jpg|left|160px]] '''The year 2020 has arrived,''' and with it comes reflection on the previous year and anticipation for what's to come. LIMSwiki saw updates to existing guides as well as new content getting created, though perhaps not as much as we would have liked. The biggest project from 2019 was likely the [[Book:LIMSpec 2019 R1|newest iteration of LIMSpec]], a major overhaul of the prior version that took at its base took requirements from [[ASTM E1578|ASTM E1578-18]] and added requirements from numerous other standards and regulations. The biggest update of 2019 was to the [[LII:Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States|cannabis laboratory testing guide]], which continues to expand. In 2020 we're looking forward to releasing more guides and books, including a significant look at what labs can do to develop a cybersecurity plan, as well as a buyer's guide for medical diagnostic and research labs. Stay tuned!

CDC COVID-19 test kit.jpg
It pleases me to announce the release of Edition 1.0 of the guide COVID-19 Testing, Reporting, and Information Management in the Laboratory. Given the rapidly changing state of the COVID-19 pandemic, this guide will receive minor updates every few weeks, or as needed (and thus the decimal editioning). The guide was created to address the evolving status of laboratory testing, reporting, and information management for the COVID-19 disease and pandemic. Aside from testing, reporting, and informatics topics related to COVID-19 (and other respiratory diseases), the guide also addresses tangential issues such as the slight relaxation of regulatory requirements like HIPAA and CLIA, as well as the technological advantages and challenges associated with digital contact tracing. The guide has a strong leaning towards the U.S. demographic, but several aspects of the guide branch out beyond the U.S. I hope you find it useful.

I'm pleased to announce that the third edition of Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States is now complete. Started in 2017, the guide sought to provide a balanced look at the industry surrounding the Cannabis plant, particularly in the United States, with a strong focus on laboratory testing. As more U.S. states (and other countries) have legalized the plant's use, the cannabis industry continues to rapidly evolve in ways expected and unexpected. This third edition builds on previous material, adding more historical perspective on changing regulations, standards, and social impacts. It also adds timely topics such as how the insurance market is catering to cannabis companies, and it highlights new efforts to standardize not only laboratory testing but also accreditation of testing labs. One other major move: we've moved primary hosting to the CannaQA wiki, a wiki similar in vein to this one but with a strong focus on cannabis science. (So what you're seeing here is a mirror of the content.) Enjoy!
