  11. 11. Data Management and Reporting• How do we manage all these data ?• Network Data Management• Project Data Tracking• Electronic Data Reporting• Work Flow Process• Hardware + Software Infrastructure
  12. 12. What is a LIMS? LIMS Database• Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) = Network-wide System + Modules for Data Reporting etc Reporting, etc.• Sample ID, Matrix, Test, Analyte, DQOs• Analyte-specific Data for each Sample• Tracks all data review /rework / release / data reporting / report revisions• Queries / Management Reports
  13. 13. System Platform •Columbia A l ti l uses S C l bi Analytical Server / L Local A l Area network (LAN) configuration • Columbia Analytical standardized on Microsoft (MS) Windows applications (i e Word Outlook (i.e., Word, Outlook, Excel, Access, MS Exchange) • Columbia Analytical Oracle® database LIMS
  14. 14. Data Management Tools• Virtually every piece of information in the laboratory network is managed electronically in LIMS• D t are generated and stored electronically on a Data t d d t d l t i ll single network-wide LIMS• Data move from department to department electronically via the LIMS• Data reports generated electronically from LIMS• Data uploads via LIMS to client / agency database

  18. 18. Basic EDD Specifications
  19. 19. Sample Receipt and Log-In • Document cooler temp. • Verify sample preservation Sample • Note discrepancies Cooler LIMS Receipt • Scan cooler receipt and Receipt and Database Chain of Custody Form COC Forms • Match COC to LIMS Project Set-up • Enter or upload field data Sample • Add demographics Login • Print and label samples, p , LIMS Request, service request, etc. • Store samples and initiate Database Labels, internal chain of custody Confirmation
  20. 20. Log Samples into LIMS• Project bar code report facilitates matching samples to SDG in LIMS• L sample i f Log l information, fi ld d t and ti field data, d demographics to LIMS
  21. 21. Sample Receipt Confirmation• Sample acknowledgement report• EQuIS EDGE sample receipt EDD as confirmation.  f
  22. 22. Analytical Testing / Validation • Create test groups in LIMS • Add QC Samples to test Test Batch Analytical groups LIMS Data Data • Technical Review of test data Database • Upload or input data into LIMS • Verify batch QC results • Verify method QC results Data • Validate against Project Certified Validation DQOsagainst Client • Flag data g LIMS ReportsRequirements • Draft Case Narrative Database • Print reports
  23. 23. Instrument Data Acquisition• Metals (MARRS)• Organics (Stealth)• Instrument Data Acquisition, Data Reduction, Reduction Data Verification Data Verification, Validation, Data Reporting• Systems Function as LIMS Modules
  24. 24. Instrument Data Acquisition Example
  25. 25. Data Validation to Project DQOS• Validation routine compares test data, data batch QC, Initial and Continuing Calibrations (ICAL / CCV) etc. C lib ti CCV), t against project requirements• System returns a set of validation reports to the analyst for review• Validated data is ready for reporting• Data “Superset” generated for EDD
  26. 26. Data “Superset” File Superset• Data “Superset” file has 105 fields Superset including: project information, sample demographics, matrix, t t analyte, d hi t i test, l t chemical abstract number, analytical results, result demographics, QC results, QC criteria, data qualifiers, and raw data records • L Large d t set allows fl ibilit t data t ll flexibility to meet most client EDD requirements
  27. 27. EDD Generation and Delivery • Generate CAS “Superset” • Transfer Superset to EDDGENERATE EDD Generator LIMS Module • Run EDD EDD • Output EDD Database • Ch k EDD Check against Client  DELIVER specification EDD • Run EDD in client test file format EDD
  28. 28. EDD Module for Data Reporting• EDD Module can be part of a LIMS or custom software developed by a Lab• Th Three primary f i functions: ti • Translate laboratory data to client-specified format (e.g., naming conventions, field f t( i ti fi ld order, field formats, etc.) • Organize laboratory data into custom client-specific EDD format • Standardize process to produce EDDs
  29. 29. Data Reduction / Reporting• Data “Super Set” is created Super Set• Proprietary program Electronic Data Deliverable Generator (EDDGE)• EDDGE program normalizes data and translates necessary Columbia Analytical internal valid values into Client-specific valid values• EDDs created from EDDGE System

  31. 31. Project DQOs / QAPPs / Specs• Project specific data quality objectives Project-specific are used to build project-specific table of data validation criteria fd t lid ti it i• Project-specific criteria are used to j p verify data is generated / reported compliant with project data quality objectives

  34. 34. EDD Development Process  Error-Free EDD Client Project CAS Project Generation becomes Manager Manager Routine Client Data Manager  CAS IT (EDD  CAS Report Production Specialist) Specialist
  35. 35. Client EDD Spec is Important EQuIS EDD spec is extremely detailed Laboratories address a wide variety EDD requests and formats All client project specifications may not captured in basic EQuIS EDD spec
  36. 36. EDD Checker Routines• EQuIS EDD checker routines• State-Specific (NJDEP, NYSDEC, etc.)• USEPA Region-specific EDD checkers• USEPA SEDD online checker• Laboratory Data Consultants (Adapt)• Alaska Corps of Engineers (COELT and SEDD Savvy)• CA D t of W t Resources GEOTRACKER Dept f Water R• U.S. Air Force ERPTOOLS X
