ADAMS Version 3.5
This ADAMS User Guide was designed to show you how to perform basic functions within ADAMS, step by step, in the most direct way. The individual sections are arranged in a sequence that follows a typical workflow. Throughout this document, we have used fictitious names for all persons in our screen shots and examples. Any resemblance to real persons, living or not, is purely coincidental.Please note, too, that some screen shots may appear different than in your installation due to browser settings and hardware configuration of your computer.
This version of ADAMS 3.5 features the following enhancements:
hGH and Marker Reporting: Updates to the 2012 International Standard for Laboratories (ISL) require laboratories to follow specific protocol when reporting hGH and hGH Marker Adverse Analytical Findings.The new Sample Analysis Attributes have been manually created in ADAMS. Each type is associated with four dedicated (new) Threshold Substances, which are available as selection options from the List of Prohibited Substances.
The enhancements of version ADAMS 3.4 were:
- Biological passport: See the ADAMS Biological Passport Guide for details.
Steroid Module Integration: The steroid module will be added to the current ABP in ADAMS.
At a given date, steroidal variables reporting will become mandatory for all accredited laboratories. Based on these values all athletes with a urine test will have a steroid profile in ADAMS.
An Athlete Passport Management Unit (APMU) will be in charge of the daily management of the steroid module. This may, in some cases, be the same as the ADO and passport custodian.
Laboratories must enter an Limit of Quantification for each Steroidal variable. See: Limit of Quantification Management.
Lab result page: for urine samples the field specific gravity is now mandatory. See: Creating a Lab Result - EN
ABP diagrams – Hematological and Steroid Modules: The diagrams of the hematological and steroid modules currently display the last 10 valid tests of an athlete. To improve user experience we will allow users to navigate within a range.
ABP table - Hematological and Steroid Modules: The ABP table list each athlete’s complete ABP test history and is located below the ABP diagrams.At expert and APMU users’ request, it will be possible to select which columns, in addition to the default ones (sample code, date of test, test type), are displayed in ABP table.
Justification for sample validity modification – Hematological Module: The Testing Authority and APMU user will have to provide a justification when manually changing the ABP laboratory result validity in a Doping Control Form (DCF).
Ability to Edit APMU Reports: APMU users will be able to modify submitted APMU reports.
All changes will be logged and made available to the passport custodian.
Exporting of ABP results: The menu which allows the searching and exporting of ABP results within a date range or per Biological Passport identification number (BPID) is currently only available to ADOs. However, following this release the designated APMU will also have access to this option.
- New XML and CVS templates are available for the lab results import. See: Analytical Result Data Elements for templates and additional information.
