Sample Status

The status of a sample is recorded and used in the LabDriver system


As a sample is processed in a laboratory or clinic, the status of that sample will change. A sequence of different statuses will start when a sample arrives in a laboratory and will finish with the production of a validated lab report or validated electronic data export.

Examples of statuses include

  • Registered
  • Active
  • Complete

The different statuses appear in the audit trails and are used to filter the display of information. This allows separate screens to show imported results, work pending, samples waiting to be validated, the production of worksheets and so on.

 A downloadable schematic of the different sample statuses is below.
