We'll bump into this scenario in other labs too, and it'll be handy to resolve it neatly soonest.
Calcium can be analysed on more than one instrument, albeit for different Sample Types, but will be reported by both instruments, in this case ICP for water and XRF for rock samples, as Ca and because it is a simple element on the periodic table the instruments do not allow for it to be edited on the instrument itself.
These are also represented by different ASs in the LIMS, let's call them Ca ICP and Ca XRF
, please comment and improve
- Configure the Ca ICP and Ca XRF Analysis Services with LIMS keywords CaICP and CaXRF
- Configure each instrument with an Instrument Import Postfix or some such, in this case ICP and XRF repectively
- When the results file is imported, concatenate the 'keyword' read from the file with the instrument postfix, e.g. Ca + ICP to form a string CaICP to look up the appropriate Analysis in the system
There could be better ways to do it... Suggestions please & quote Jordi
