Minerals and Mining Industry

From simple process stream analysis to complex, multi-instrument determinations of hundreds of analytes, AssayNet LIMS provide fast, efficient data management systems at a very competitive price point.

AssayNet LIMS provides the ideal solution for:

  • Commercial environmental laboratories
  • Minesite laboratories
  • Process plant facilities in the materials industry
  • Federal and provincial laboratories supporting the geological and mining sectors

FEATURES

Fast sample login

From single samples to multi-thousand sample batches, login that is both fast and efficient will save your staff time and save you money. A sample wizard allows you to rapidly enter series with repeating numeric sequences, while a co-ordinate entry system quickly builds up x-y-z co-ordinate labels. The system can import sample labels from other sources, such as text and spreadsheets, and it supports pre-defined sample lists and analyses, linked to an automatic scheduler for routine sample login. Using the web interface, your customers can register samples remotely through a browser interface, and even print their own barcode labels, saving you labor and reducing the potential for sample labeling errors.

Sample preparation included

Virtually unique in minerals analysis is the attention that must be given to sample preparation protocols. Minesite and minerals lab managers understand well that they ignore sample prep at their peril. AssayNet LIMS allows managers and those responsible for quality to estimate the variance introduced at each stage of the analysis, including sample preparation. This lets them make informed decisions about preparation methodologies, including such things as optimal sample size, number of size reduction stages, and number and type of splitting stages. Information about preparation variance is normally gathered using split samples, taken at various stages along the preparation route. Many labs also introduce additional QC samples during preparation, as distinct from those introduced at the analysis stage. An example is the use of barren quartz washings to identify equipment contamination. AssayNet LIMS systems can track these independently and they form part of the overall QC program. Finally, by analyzing sample products separately, AssayNet LIMS is able to perform intra-sample calculations such as for screen analysis with assay of fractions, metallics screen assays, and bullion analysis

Powerful tracking tools

User-defined status codes allow the LIMS to track samples in the way you want, not the way a programmer decided you should. Find your work rapidly, or get instant feedback about work-in-progress with complex saved filters. Our revolutionary Job Book concept stores all analytical data in a readily-accessible and customizable register – so you can view everything in one place, anytime you want.

Automatic worksheet generation

Quality control integration and automatic worksheet generation are just some of the sophisticated tools that allow analysts to spend less time at the keyboard and more time on the bench. QC templates allow you to insert randomized and fixed-position QC samples according to pre-defined rules. Worksheet samples can come from different worklists and different clients, and can even have different sample types.

Flexible results entry

AssayNet LIMS accept many different types of results entry, including numeric and textual values, as well as choosing from pre-defined lists, (e.g. presence / absence tests). In addition, analysts can add comments to individual samples or results. These comments can be free-form or chosen from drop-down lists. They are indexed and can be configured to display on subsequent results screens as well as on customer reports.

Calculations made simple

AUsing our intuitive, calculator-style equation editor, users can rapidly define complex, intra- and inter-test formulae, incorporating powerful, conditional logic rules. Examples range from simple analyte totals such as for PCB’s, to complex ionic balance calculations across multiple instruments.

For raw data processing, AssayNet LIMS systems offer several correction options, all fully user-configurable, including position-based drift and blank correction, and matrix interference corrections for specific analytes

Compliance and Verification

Adverse results can be flagged automatically, with custom alerts providing colored, on-screen and / or email warnings for out-of-compliance samples. Complex, cross-task verification rules promote peace of mind by checking results algorithmically before they are approved. Finally, results approval screens allow users unparalleled flexibility, giving multiple, user-customizable views of the same data, instant QC feedback and much more.
