Multiple analysis specifications

Hello all,
I’m considering providing Senaite to a labs in Jordan and to actually develop some localized addons, the determining factor for me right now is multiple analysis specifications. Does that exits in the current setup? Can I create multiple reference ranges for an analysis service one for male and one for females for instance?

Me interesa este post.

Nosotros contamos con un LIS de desarrollo propio que ha sido escrido en el 2010 (ASP.NET) y en la actualidad estamos tratando de migrar a SENAITE (dado que por política públicas debemos usar software de licencia libre). En el corto plazo no podemos realizar las modificaciones necesarias ya que el rrhh informático se encuentra abocado a otras tareas mas prioritarias.
Si sirve de ayuda puedo colaborar como Product Owner para el desarrollo de esto.
Muchas gracias!

Hello @sufrjo,
yes, we integrated dynamic analysis specifications in the upcoming 1.3.3 release


To distinguish different result ranges for male/female patients, you would have to write a custom Dynamic Results Range Adapter as described in the pull request.
Also see the doctest for functional internals: https://github.com/senaite/senaite.core/blob/ab15d24cb73eeb113ce34d8cf2e9d8f05db17afc/bika/lims/tests/doctests/DynamicAnalysisSpec.rst
Best regards, Ramon

Thanks a lot for the help! That is exactly what I’m looking for.

Hi @aledeneuquen, if you have senaite.health installed, and therefore you want dynamic specs taking patients sex and age into consideration a Dynamic Results Range Adapter like below might work (haven’t tested):

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

from bika.lims.interfaces import IDynamicResultsRange
from zope.interface import implementer

from bika.lims.interfaces.analysis import IRequestAnalysis

marker = object()


@implementer(IDynamicResultsRange)
class DynamicResultsRange(object):

    def __init__(self, analysis):
        self.analysis = analysis

    def __call__(self):
        if not IRequestAnalysis.providedBy(self.analysis):
            # Cannot grab the patient from analyses not assigned to a Sample
            return {}

        # Get the sample's specificaion
        sample = self.analysis.getRequest()
        specification = sample.getSpecification()
        if not specification:
            # No specification, nothing to do
            return {}

        # Dynamic specification
        dyn_spec = specification.getDynamicAnalysisSpec()

        # Get the patient from the sample
        sample = self.analysis.getRequest()
        patient = sample.getField("Patient").get(sample)
        if not patient:
            # No patient assigned for this sample, do nothing
            return {}

        # Patient's age (in years)
        age = patient.getAge()
        # Patient's gender (male/female/dk)
        sex = patient.getGender()

        # Get the dynamic specification for this analysis by keyword
        # We expect the xls to have the columns "keyword", "age" and "sex"
        keyword = self.analysis.getKeyword()
        ranges = dyn_spec.get_by_keyword().get(keyword)
        if not ranges:
            # No ranges defined for this analysis
            return {}

        # Find a match by age and sex
        for range in ranges:
            if range.get("age") == age and range.get("sex") == sex:
                return range

        # No dynamic specification found for this analysis and patient
        return {}

You have to create a Dynamic Analysis Specification in SENAITE and upload an excel with at least the following column headers: keyword, age, sex, min, max.

For instructions on how to add a dynamic results range adapter, please read the links posted by @ramonski above

Hope it helps

Just did a write up on the documentation page with the example you have given @xispa:

Fantastic!. Thanks @ramonski

This has been so helpful, thank you so much!
