The report center where all validation reports can be viewed. Each time a validation of specimens, racks, or containers is performed, the group of items validated at that time is referred to as a validation batch or group for which a report is generated.

    1. Batch Number Search: If the validation batch number is known, it can be typed into the search at the top of the screen. If the validation batch is found, the Summary Report will than appear.
    2. Select a Batch: Under the batch number search box a list of recent validation batches is displayed with the most recent batch at the top. Find the rack or container used in the validation and click on its ID. This will bring up the Summary Report.

  • Spec ID: Specimen ID of the specimen in the rack position.

Summary Report

The Summary Report is designed to give the user the most relevant information in the briefest amount of space. There are two sections that can appear on a Summary Report in addition to the three common report elements listed above.
Summary report

Missing Specimens

This section of the Summary Report will display all specimens that were not validated and were marked as missing. If all specimens were validated and none were missing, this section will not appear. The table displayed is split into three columns.
Missing specimen report section

  • Spec ID: The Specimen ID of the missing specimen.
  • Pos: The position the specimen occupies in the rack.
  • Note: The validation note if one exists. If a specimen was eventually deleted, the delete event information will be displayed in this column.

Other information may also appear below a specimen's entry in this table. There are four additional entries that can appear:

  • Validation Event Note: If a specimen was eventually found or deleted, the validation note will display below the specimen's entry.
  • Found Event: If a specimen was found, an entry will appear stating when it was found and by whom.
  • Delete Event: If a specimen was deleted, an entry will appear stating when it was deleted and by whom.
  • Other Specimen Notes: If there are any notes attached to the missing specimen, they will display in a separate box below all of the previous three events.
    Missing Specimen Events and Notes

Added Specimens

This section will display any specimens that were added during validation. If no specimens were added during validation, this section will not appear. The table displayed is split into three columns.
Added specimens report section

  • Spec ID: The Specimen ID of the added specimen.
  • Pos: The position the specimen occupies in the rack.
  • Note: The validation note if one exists.

Full Report

The Full Report displays all specimens, racks and containers involved in the validation batch. Each specimen is displayed in a three column table.
Full report

  • Spec ID: This column displays the Specimen ID of the specimen.
  • Pos: This column displays the position in the rack the specimen occupies.
  • Note: This column displays the validation note if one exists.

If a specimen was marked as missing, the specimen's table entry will appear with a red background color and will display any extra information pertaining to the missing specimen. Consult the Summary Reports description of the missing specimens section for a list of extra information that may appear.

If a specimen was added during the validation process, the specimen's table entry will appear with a blue background color and the note column will state when the specimen was added and who added it.
