Alpha's data management tools help make the most complex project easier to handle and simple to review.
Alpha Data Exchange (ADEx)
ADEx is Alpha’s data transfer vehicle. When a data set is approved for release by lab management, it is automatically uploaded to our ADEx Internet server in various standard and custom electronic formats requested by the client. Secure access to data on this server is via the Internet. Clients can access both current and historical data in PDF and MS Excel files. Special data management tools like our Data Merger or Criteria Checkers may also be available. Custom designed, contract required and other EDDs are also available. All formats are automatically available immediately upon data approval. There is no waiting to view special files.
Alpha’s Criteria Checker presents data from one sampling event to be displayed in Excel format and compares this data to specific regulatory criteria that you have pre-selected. Criteria Checker will highlight in color any cell with a data point that exceeds the regulatory criteria chosen. Even a non-detect with a reporting limit exceeding the regulatory criteria will be highlighted, but in a different color. Criteria Checker has several available formats and end-user data manipulation tools.
Data Merger is a special data management tool that allows clients to build tables with data from multiple sampling events. A virtually limitless combination of options is available to create tables with current and historical data (up to 10 years old) and compare those data sets against specific regulatory criteria. Available to select clients, Data Merger works in real time on Alpha’s Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
Alpha’s ADEx & Data Merger tools can save you many hours in preparing data tables.
