ESdat Environmental Database Software is used for collating and reporting environmental information. It offers interactive functionality to manage, analyze and report laboratory data quickly and easily. ESdat uses its Electronic Lab Data Format (ELDF) to enable the transfer of data from a laboratory to ESDAT users in a format which allows checking and direct import into ESDAT. To import lab results faster, there is now the new Lab Initiated Report upload (LIRU).

Your laboratory will need to provide results in ESdat Electronic Lab Data Format (ELDF). The ELDF files contain batch receipt, lab report, sample and chemistry information, including comprehensive quality assurance data. The ELDF consists of three files: the Header File, the Sample File and the Chemistry Results File.

By subscribing to the ESdat Lab Initiated Report Upload (LIRU), an increasing number of organisations are streamlining the process even more. With LIRU, lab reports are imported into ESdat automatically. Users receive an email from ESdat informing them the Lab Report imported. The email contains a list of any exceedances, plus links that take the user directly to relent views with ESdat, including automatically tabulated data and a map of the sample locations.

The Lab Initiated Report upload combined with the ESdat Reference Database synch has the potential to revolutionise how laboratory data is received into users’ systems. Critical elements like ChemCodes, Chemistry Profiles, Unit Conversions and Environmental Standards are all kept up to date.

The Lab Initiated Report Upload is available as an annual subscription. Labs that support the Lab Initiated Upload include AGAT, ALS, Analytica Laboratories Ltd, Assure Quality, Caro, EnviroLab, Eurofins, and SGS. For more information please visit:
