Laboratory Management and Technical Issues
We just purchased a new ATL LIMS. When we are entering data with QC, as far as we can tell, the only way to identify them are by login numbers and not by sites. We think this might cause major problems. Just today, when entering data in our old LIMS, I encounterd a mistake on the site name, with the new LIMS, I would not have caught this because of just having a number. If anyone is using ATL and have any ideas or shortcuts, it would be greatly appreciated.
I spoke with a rep at ATL and learned the following:
Modifying Column Headings - You can change fields, also known as column headings. This can be done on existing fields and user-defined fields. However, the fonts cannot be modified on individual screens. Users can make global windows display changes. This would affect everything on the computer.
Our current Telecation LIMS allows us to add or subtract fields in various forms as we see fit. I noticed that our QC forms don't have Sample ID, on ly Sample Numbers and we don't have any problems with mixing things up.
