Field personnel working for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could capture all of the necessary data out in the field, but because of the technology set-up and general workflow there was a delay in getting data about field samples into the lab IT systems for lab technicians to begin their work. Dovel built a mobile lab collection system as a pilot for the FDA to see how samples could be more effectively logged into the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). With the mobile solution, chain of custody is recorded in the field as opposed to having to label in the field, record bar code numbers and then enter those numbers into the system at an office-bound desktop. Once the sample number is recorded in the system, tests can be assigned and the lab can prepare to run them immediately upon physical receipt. The system was designed to work on the FDA-issued Android devices.
