“I had the pleasure of running into Dan Leighton, creator of SmartLabTools. He's created a set of very simple PDFs - not Excel spreadsheets, but PDFs. These make the data entry easier and you're also less likely to accidentally enter some formula error. He's got PDFs that cover allowable error limits, your QC ranges, even your Sigma-metrics.”

SmartLabTools™ are simple to use interactive PDF templates for common laboratory calculations, lab reports, and forms. Many templates have been designed to allow the user to personalize the header, and then fill in the blanks with appropriate descriptions and data. Calculations or interpretations appear automatically, and the attractive completed document is ready to print and save.
Much time and effort is spent in the laboratory developing forms that will help streamline operations and meet documentation requirements. Standardization of laboratory calculations is another challenge. Online calculators are available and useful, but are often limited by only allowing the user to enter and print data without saving. Spreadsheets, such as those developed with Excel™, offer great versatility, but require user spreadsheet knowledge or training.
These SmartLabTools™ applications, and others in development, are being designed for ease of use by laboratorians. The ‘fill in the blanks’ PDF templates offer reusable tools that do not require program experience or an Internet connection.
