13 Worksheets
A number of analyses, on different samples but logically belonging together - such as intended for the same lab workstation, instrument of specific analyst - can be grouped into a single unit of work on a Worksheet. All results are reviewed together, in context of QC results associated on the same sheet
13.6 Instrument Results Import
13.4 Creating Worksheets the easy way
The same manual schlepp of creating Worksheets with all their QC Analyses and all, gets a whole lot easier with Worksheet Templates
13.7 Import results from spreadsheets
Use a two dimensional table of Sample/AR IDs and their Analyses. Not to be recommended...
13.5 Export Worksheets to Instruments
Worksheets can be exported as a .CSV or .TXT file in the format specified for instruments capable of uploading Sample lists and their tray positions before analysing them. That leads to further improvements in turnaround time and accuracy as another opportunity for human transcription error is removed
6 Analysis Services
Setting up Analysis Services - the tests offered by the lab to its clients, their Methods and parameters
11 Workflow Basics
How the basic transactional objects, Analyses and Analysis Requests, proceed through the system, triggering actions and influencing parent objects. Much more efficiency is eventually achieved using Batches and Worksheet. More later
15 Use Cases
Some special cases resolved in Bika LIMS
12 Batching
8 Analysis Profiles. AR Templates
Analysis Panels and Masks. Collection of analyses frequently requested, stored as Analysis Profile and repeatedly used as request 'template'
Quality Control in Bika
QC results are captured with reference to the specific reference material and instrument used, and added to their control tables and charts. Out-of-range results raise alerts, prompting the user to initiate retesting workflow
9 Product Specifications
Setting up valid ranges for Analysis results per Sample Type. Any result outside of the range specified, raises alerts
5 Instruments
3 Clients and Contacts
4. Configuration
Setting up your LIMS. Only users with lab manager authorisation have access to the LIMS configuration. Users won't have to come here regularly, most of the configuration is completed during initial implementation.
