Sample Receipt Notification (SRN)

The Sample Receipt Notification (SRN) Module allows for the tracking of testing related issues reported by labs.


SRN allows users to do the following:


Define groups of samples from a COC assigned to a lab for testing.

Record COC cooler information reported by a lab on cooler reception.

Record generic issues reported by a lab about the group of samples received.

Record specific sample issues (associated with analysis).

Record test related issues.

Request resampling of samples.

Record delays in testing.


Relations between SRN Module Items




The SRN Module contains a series of user entry forms, reports and formats. User entry forms and reports are used by an EQuIS user; formats are used for an exchange of electronic SRN data between labs and the EQuIS user.


The SRN Module requires a schema application to the EQuIS Database. Once successfully applied, electronic SRN EDDs can be imported using the SRN.xsd format supplied with SPM (.\Program Files\EarthSoft\SPM\Formats\SRN). The SRN data contained can be accessed via the SRN Module.


The SRN Module integrates with SPM. It is developed as an EQuIS form, can be launched from SPM or EQuIS, and requires a SPM. dll to be present in the EQuIS\Forms folder.


SRN data can come electronically from a lab or can be entered manually using SRN Module forms. Any electronically received data can be modified in the SRN Module.


Since the process of exchanging  information between labs and the EQuIS user can have multiple iterations for the same Work Order, an SRN entry is used to represent a data exchange event. One work order can have multiple SRN entries, with each entry defining the current list and state of sample and test issues. A Work Order is required to have a unique name, while each SRN entry is required to have a unique name, followed by a unique time.
