SAMPLE PROCESSING IN ALS LABORATORY
Samples are received by the Login Department, checked and entered in the laboratory information system (LIMS). All the information given on the protocol (name, location, date of collection, time of collection, etc) is recorded in the system. All samples are labelled with a number generated by the system and are subsequently processed in all participating laboratories under this number. This label also includes the generated bar code, which enables simpler handling of the sample. The samples are distributed (in appropriate quantities for various analyses) and either placed in rooms of proper temperature or processed immediately in involved laboratories.
