April 9, 2013: Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Inc. (ATL), a premier supplier of Laboratory Data Management Solutions is excited to announce the release of our new Asbestos Data Management module for Sample Master® Pro LIMS.
Gain the Sample Master® advantage in your asbestos testing! Optimize your laboratory for success by leveraging Sample Master® to the areas of sample integrity, test efficiency, and reporting. ATL’s Sample Master® streamlines your laboratory’s operations, allowing you more time to focus on increasing your capacity and serving more customers.
There are 10 feature rich modules in Sample Master® to help laboratories to create quotes, generate invoices, and generate reports such as the Chain of Custody, login, backlog, production, worklist and many others. Sample Master® not only helps laboratories to achieve their regulatory compliance goals (ISO 17025, A2LA, NELAC) but also meets the requirements outlined by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Laboratory Accreditation Programs.
Features included in the new Asbestos Module:
Customer Sample Sequencer– The new Customer Sample Sequencer generates and assigns ID numbers for large sample batches. The Customer Sample Sequencer makes it easy to create your own Customer Sample IDs quickly.
Phase Contrast Microscopy (PCM)– Perform Phase Contrast Microscopy (PCM) tests and enter results into Sample Master® without having to look away from the microscope! The PCM calculator automatically totals the number of fibers, fields, and the average fibers per field. When 100 fibers are counted in at least 20 fields an audible tone sounds, indicating this rule has been met – minimizing your analysis time and increasing productivity in the laboratory.
Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM)– Our PLM data entry screen allows users to add, copy, insert, and delete layers on the fly. Our quick search feature – available on all entry fields – provides drop-down lists for even faster input. You can also duplicate an entire sample from any previously entered sample in the system, layer-for-layer. Sample Master® performs your prerequisite calculations in real-time; this approach leaves no room for guesswork about how much sample is remaining.
Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)– Whether you’re entering AHERA samples or testing for asbestos in water, our TEM data entry screens are intuitive and user friendly. You can set default information for filter size, magnification, area of grid opening, and other options in order to streamline analysis time. As you enter and identify asbestos fibers, useful drop down lists become available. Sample Master® also adds and totals the number of fibers and fiber dimensions. You can upload asbestos images directly from the instrument or from a hard drive so they appear on the entry screen and on reports.
