Chain of Custody: New Samples


The purpose of the CoC feature is create a custody form that will accompany physical samples for third party, off-site testing. This article explains how to create new samples and include them on a CoC. 

Creating a CoC

Click the 'Generate CoC Form' button located at the top right of the screen. 

Give the CoC form a name that is consistent with a convention for ease of tracking and future reference. Select a lab to issue the CoC to, or contact if the intended lab is not available. The supported labs are Bureau Veritas, AGAT, Natty Gas, Husky and Element.

Select a site, and then add a sample. 

  • By adding a new sample, a pop-up will appear allowing you to select sample type, whether the sample is scheduled (associated with a workflow) and the sample timing. Once the sample details have been entered, click on 'Create Sample'.
  • By selecting an existing sample, a pop-up will appear to select from a full list of samples, and filtering by stream and workflow.

Added new or existing samples will now appear in the list of samples available for selection on the CoC form. Continue to add new or existing samples as necessary, then click 'Create Chain of Custody'.

A stylized form will appear with a Validere ID. The form contains the samples that were selected with their associated details (product, LSD, sample times) pre-populated. Fields that are empty on the form can be edited. Once all the information has been filled, the form can be downloaded and printed or sent via an email attachment.
