LabVantage LIMS update coming September 7-8, 2019

LabVantage LIMS update coming September 7-8, 2019

The AHL is currently using LabVantage 6 as our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). Many of you are familiar with our LIMS from using online e-forms or online submission result look-up.

From 6 PM on Friday September 6th to finish on Sunday September 8th we will be upgrading LabVantage 6 to the latest version - LabVantage 8.

There are several reasons for this upgrade:

  • Modern look and feel with simple, clear start-up screen, enhanced usability and efficiency
  • Improved navigation with the ability to track actions
  • Mobile friendly
  • Browser independent
  • Responsive menu and configurable tool-bars
  • Dashboards to view KPI

In order to do the upgrade, our LIMS will be completely off line during this time. AHL will have NO access as well. Those trying to work in LIMS or access cases, including AHL personnel, will be unable to do so.

AHL will be able to receive normal Saturday cases and provide testing in Clinical Pathology and Bacteriology as usual. As AHL will have NO access to client information – please make sure that you put full clinic contact information on the submission form if submitting during that period.

AHL will manually be emailing/faxing results produced by the laboratory equipment.

For e-form users – LIMS will be completely unavailable. If submitting, you will need to use paper forms and add email or fax information.

For our Client Portal users. Clients will be able to enter the submissions, but will have to save it and send it when the LIMS is back on-line. Client Portal persons can view results for anything resulted by 5:00 pm on Friday.

Once LIMS is back on-line on Monday, all of the data from the weekend cases will be entered into the new LIMS and resulted.

Thanks for your patience and continued support as we work through this upgrade.   AHL
