Do you need to meet revised drinking water and bathing water regulations?

CSols Remote Sampler was developed in conjunction with many water companies seeking a solution to better manage remote sampling, reduce costs, improve chain of custody and meet regulatory requirements.

May 9, 2012 - PRLog -- CSols is pleased to announce a new release of Remote Sampler, developed in conjunction with many water companies seeking a solution to better manage remote sampling, reduce costs, improve chain of custody and meet regulatory requirements. Remote Sampler provides a paperless trail of custody throughout the life of the sample to meet regulatory requirements e.g. UKAS Accreditation Requirements for Sampling and Testing in Accordance with the Drinking Water Testing Specification - DWTS UK Drinking Water Inspectorate (Water) and the Food Standards Agency requirements. Remote Sampler also can take full advantage barcodes, RFID and of highly automated systems such as LIMS already in place in laboratories.

Many laboratories have samples collected from remote locations. Often various details have to be recorded about the samples and as well as the location details this often includes onsite tests. Rather than relying upon paper records, CSols Remote Sampler software runs on a ruggedized hand held computer and allows all data entry to be captured electronically at point of sampling making life easier for the sampler. All data captured can then be electronically transferred without further user interaction to LIMS hence reducing administration and errors in transcription in the laboratory. Remote Sampler includes optional Satellite Navigation software for guidance to sampling locations and GPS tracking to provide proof that samples were collected in the correct locations. Remote Sampler software has been designed to be easy to use for a Sampler. It can operate in either or both of the following ways: 1) Where LIMS is generating the Collection Runs in advance and 2) Where the Sampler logs the samples into LIMS directly from the PDA as data is collected on site (i.e. these Samples had not already been logged on LIMS). Remote Sampler is highly secure and all actions (including configuration changes) are audit trailed. Site sampling point photographs can also be incorporated with the data.

Optionally add Integrated route navigation
Once at the location, the Sampler can step through the actions that are necessary to confirm the location, collect the sample bottles and perform the onsite tests requested by LIMS.

Entering onsite data into Remote Sampler
Remote Sampler features a Wizard style interface with large, readable text and a user friendly layout. When collecting samples, the user is given details of the bottles required and any pretreatment of the sample that is necessary. Preprinted, barcoded labels attached to the bottles are scanned into the Collection Run and the GPS position, date, time and sampler are recorded, thereby ensuring that the samples were taken in the correct location. In this example, the PDA has a phone based internet connection. This is used to transfer details back about each sample as it is collected. This gives the receiving laboratory some advance warning of what is coming in later. This can be important in some situations where speed is important e.g. Microbiology.

Specific Sampling Requirements
If you have a sampling application that you think will have requirements that are unlikely to be handled by Remote Sampler then please contact us directly. We could provide a custom solution but if your requirements are of more general interest then we would be willing to consider incorporating the new functionality configurably in our standard
Remote Sampler software.
