Complete electronic data record from field - to lab - to office
The LSpecs extension for ESdat, in combination with a field-based tablet data collection system such as pLog, provides a complete electronic data trail which enables you to:
plan your sampling programme prior to fieldwork;
collect and record field data such as borehole logging information and field parameter sampling;
issue electronic lab sample details and requests (Chain of Custody or COC);
rapidly identify inconsistencies between lab requests and deliverables at the touch of a button; and
sign off on lab reports.
Electronic COC and sign off has the following advantages:
all data is stored electronically and backed-up;
no more waterlogged paper-based forms;
no typographic errors introduced during lab sample check in;
easy to calculate expected lab costs;
QA samples are tracked electronically and correctly identified; and
inconsistencies between lab requests and deliverables are flagged automatically.
Electronic COC requires the LSpecs extension for ESdat.
