Fully automated label printing in a laboratory

Sep 01 2020 Read 411 Times

Challenge: The oncology lab in a local hospital creates separate records in their LIMS when samples are spliced. Each sample needs a dedicated label that includes sample creation date, a unique LIMS ID and a parent ID for traceability purposes.

The laboratory recognised they could save valuable time by automating label creation for these samples.

Label template

The preferred label template includes 2 QR-codes, one with the sample’s unique(Child – C) ID on the left, and another one with its parent ID (P) on the right. It also includes the sample creation date in the center.

All this information can be fitted on a standard 38.10 x 6.35 mm label.

CSV-data dump set up

The laboratory has a LIMS that can dump data to CSV-files. Within their existing business process, a sub process or hook was created after splicing samples.

Next to the required information for the labels, the LIMS also dumps additional data that could be added to a new label template planned for the future.
