ESdat eCOC and related files


The Workflow between clients with ESdat’s LSPECS module and the Laboratories consists of three different stages prior to the submission of the final Laboratory Report data. Laboratories can support any individual part of this process, allowing for a progressive support of the entire solution.

eQuote - Generated by the Laboratories this provides quote definitions (Analyses and Containers) that users can select from.

Allowing users to select from lists specified in a quote ensures the laboratory will receive values that can be automatically recognized and matched against values in their LIMS.

eCoC - Sent from ESdat to the laboratories, including all sample information, analysis requested, and container information that is normally sent on a paper CoC (plus some additional details).

The laboratory can then automatically process this file , preventing the need to manually enter this data at sample check-in.

eSRN - Laboratories generate and send this file in response to receiving the physical samples.

This file is used to check if the received samples and analyses requests match what was initially sent by the client, alerting the users to any discrepancies.
