Software, Laboratory Measurement
Definition : Software designed to operate laboratory measuring instruments, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while measuring. This software is intended to work only with one or a few models of measuring instruments usually from the same manufacturer; the software may perform a variety of algorithms such as quality control, detect out of range specimens, provide customized reports, and send/receive patient information from the local information system. Laboratory measuring instrument software is usually not available separate from the instrument but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the lifetime of the equipment.
