Features Overview

The following features are included with
J Street LIMS

Single Sample
or Batch Login

Log individual samples by selecting a project, location, sample type, customer, etc. To speed logging of repetitive samples, define a login batch with any number of samples with various characteristics. Use dynamic batch login to quickly log a group of samples with similar traits.

Results Entry by
Sample or Analyte

Scan a barcode on a container label, worksheet, or bench sheet and enter results for all analyses for a single sample. Select an analyte and include sample query criteria to enter analysis results across samples and to create analytical batches for QC data entry.

Excel Interface

Import sample data and analyses to log samples. Import results from instrument data files, create custom reports from data in any LIMS report, and create custom analyte-specific data entry screens to calculate and import final results and QC data.


Automatically send an email or fax with sample information when a sample is logged or completed. Message styles range from plain text to attached files in rich text, Excel, HTML, PDF, and XML formats. Configure message recipients by customer or project.


Schedule samples to be logged by a specific date and optionally repeat at a given frequency (weekly, monthly, etc.). The system automatically generates a warning when a scheduled sample is due.

Sample Tracking
And Warning

Prevent lost or expired samples with automatic warnings when a sample has an analysis due. Tracking features include quick location of incomplete or past-due samples and samples with warnings.


Log QC samples and generate QC control charts. Define QC data types by analysis. Create analytical batches, enter QC data by batch, and print associated QC data with sample results.


Query sample data for viewing/printing using any combination of available criteria such as project, location, sample type, sampler, collection date, etc. Use structured query language (SQL) for additional capabilities.

Reports, Charts
and Statistics

Use an extensive list of reports to collect, present, and analyze lab data. Generate chain-of-custody reports, bench sheets, and worksheets. Use the report generator to design and create your own custom reports. Export report data to spreadsheets for further analysis.


Maintain customer lists and assign costs by analysis, project and customer. Generate detail and summary invoices. Combine this with the Messaging component for automated client invoicing.

Instrument and Procedure Lists

Maintain instrument and lab procedure records and generate calendars with instrument maintenance, calibration, and procedure schedules.


Automatically generate barcoded container labels when logging samples. Speed results entry by scanning sample containers or barcoded worksheets or sample lists.

Data Access

Control system and data access using a multi-level security structure. Add user login accounts to one of four security roles with different system privileges: ReadOnly, Samplers, Technicians, and Administrators.


Track data modifications using the integrated sample audit trail.


Develop and document analysis methods.
