  • Establish greater connectivity between our sentinel labs and our regional LRNs
  • Insert our regional LRNs into the loop of testing/routing samples here to DSHS for viral isolation such that that particular LRN or LRNs can provide a quicker TAT and feedback to the submitter through PCR testing at their site
  • Test Labware LIMS functionalities
