Result Details and Comments

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Users can see full details for a result by clicking on a result cell in the Chemistry Table when the "Result Details & Comments" menu button (top right) is open. 

Users can also enter comments or validation directly against a single result on the same form.  This is particularly important where there may be an issue with a result, or where concentrations are high.

Comments that are displayed on the Chemistry Table are displayed in the Comments Tab. Comments on the chemistry table are numbered #1, #2 etc..

The data qualifier definitions for the Validation and Final Qualifiers come from the USEPA and are:

U        The analyte was analyzed for, but was not detected above the level of the Reported sample quantitation limit.

J        The result is an estimated quantity. The associated numerical value is the approximate concentration of the analyte in the sample.

J+        The result is an estimated quantity, but the result may be biased high.

J-        The result is an estimated quantity, but the result may be biased low.

R        The data are unusable. The sample results are rejected due to serious deficiencies in meeting Quality Control (QC) criteria. The analyte may or may not be present in the sample.

UJ        The analyte was analyzed for, but was not detected. The Reported quantitation limit is approximate and may be inaccurate or imprecise.
