Using a first configuration for Bika LIMS being implemented at http://greenhilllabs.co.za/ analysing Raw Milk for Mastitis
Veterinarian samples dairy herd on farm, composite udder samples, and requests analyses on them using the Batch Sample import spreadsheets
Samples are analysed for:
- Somatic Cell Count (Greenhill DU.SSC) on the Somascope LIMS-3112
- Bacteriological Identification on MALDI Biotyper LIMS-3096
Results are manually captured as interfaces Biotyper and Somascope are not currently available. Some results are retracted for retesting. When done, results are verified in the lab, and then by a vet and published by email
To make testing easier, Sample Types, Analysis Services, Profiles, CRM’s etc..
In the end you'd want lab clients to remotely register their Samples, which will then start-off in state 'Due' and when they arrive at lab, be checked in and promoted to 'Received'.
Especially for the beginning now, i am setting Bika up as if all samples are registered at reception in the lab, and they start as Received, saving time. Clients can still register new Samples remotely
- 1st Lab manager Verification/Retraction
- 2nd Verification/Retraction by Vet
The Verifiying Vet is a lab appointed consultant veterinarian that has to give final approval for results to be published. His/her user is configured as labclerk with added verifier authentication and cannot capture results. This role will be formalised in upcoming customisations
x-checked on individual ASs
Not the same as the lab's Verifiying Vet but the client's own vet that is monitoring the herd, He/she is created as a Contact at the client and included for copies of results for the Client's other Contacts
Apologies irritating new bug here, listing ASs twice, once categorised and a second time not. To be sorted. Also encountered omn Profiles and Specifications described lower down
3 IDs with lookup lists (Bika Results options) populated from the BDAL sheets + ‘No reliable identification’.
These are called Milk Bacteriology ID 1, ID 2 and ID 3 at the moment. Please modify if you have better titles for them
3 BioTyper Scores, 1 for each ID, as Hidden - only seen in the lab and not on the COA
Numeric. I put an specification together, Test Spec Raw Milk, that will raise an amber alert for any values above 500 (from email, the vets’ warning) and red for results above 1000
I created a new Profile, DU MID and SCC, to include all 6 DU.MID ASs, and SCC
Since reference Samples frequently expire, some quicker than others, we create a Definition, or specification, for it first. This Reference Definition can then be used every time a new Reference SAmple is opened or made up from stock
The actual Reference Sample is obtained from a Supplier, in this example we use Bika Lab Systems
Create the Sample by selecting the corresponding Reference Definition, and complete most importantly its expiry date
The Reference Sample inherits its specification from th Reference Definition used to create it
Until the interfaces for the Somascope and BioTyper has been sorted out, these will be completed manually, and I limited them to 50 Samples each to make them manageable
I updated the GreenHill Master Sample Import Template v1.0 with the new Profile and all GreenHills Clients and other config items, and removed everybody’s editing authorisation to protect its integrity.
