Key Functionality in Sample Master
- Sample Tracking
- Data Entry
- Sample Scheduling
- Electronic Data Transfer
- Asbestos Package
- Chemical Inventory
- Resource Management
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
- LIMS Maintenance
Manage samples as they move through the laboratory. Sample Tracking includes integrated bar coding 1d, 2d
Allows data to be received from analysts or instruments. Permissions can be granted to each user to view, enter, validate or approve results. Data Entry allows the laboratory to enter, approve and report results with peer review. Key standard worklists and result reports are included.
Powerful scheduling is used to automatically login samples that are routinely collected. Samples can be automatically scheduled as daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual events. Sample bottle labels and worklists can automatically be generated in advance of a sampling event and sample kits created
QA/QC lets you graph results and create control charts for data that has been entered into Sample Master. You can easily select the data to plot using criteria such as test, sample number, analyst, etc. It is just as easy to select the samples used to generate the control limits. You can also leverage NWA for more sophisticated statistical analysis.
Electronic Data Transfer allows direct electronic transfer of data from the instrument to Sample Master via a variety of formats
Asbestos Package offers laboratories efficient, automated functionality that will manage your asbestos data, generate NVLAP compliant reports and create invoices. Manage all your PLM, TEM and PCM processes.
Chemical Inventory lets you track supplies and vendors. You can receive and make supplies, reconcile them and update the supplies used in sample analysis. Users are warned when running low on supplies. Users can also track lot numbers, vendor
Resource Management is for managing instrument calibrations and repairs as well as personnel certificates. Users can view this information by certification or by a test. Expiration dates are also recorded. If an instrument is out of calibration, the LIMS can be set to disallow data input from the instrument that is out of calibration.
Customer Relationship Management is for managing customer inquiries and complaints. This module will track how each contact was made, who managed it, the severity of the issue and actions taken toward the resolution. There are also several reports including customer history, open issues by severity and a summary report.
LIMS Maintenance is a central location to enter and edit information that is used throughout the LIMS, such as sites, collectors, client contacts, employees, permissions, sampling numbering format, tests, methods, limits, QC information, departments and numerous defaults and more.
Now Included in Sample Master
Automated BOD Calculations
The integrated BOD tool that will automatically calculate and report the BOD/CBOD results in seconds, based on standard methods criteria. The software will flag any data that is not within acceptable limits and will complete all required calculations. It is user friendly and can easily be used by laboratory personnel and operators with minimal training in order to provide enhanced data integrity and security.
Automated MPN (Most Probable Number)
A common test in many environmental laboratories, especially drinking water is the MPM analysis. This can be done by several methods, either manually with setting up the test tubes and dilutions and referencing the Thomas Tables or the more modern IDEXX method with QuaniTrays, both methods are integrated into Sample Master.
