Asynchronous Background Processing
In high volume labs, such as those testing for tens of pesticides per sample, system performance slows down for big tasks such as submitting big Worksheets for Verification, and it is better to perform these tasks asynchronously in the background, freeing the user up to continue with other tasks in the LIMS. Asynchronous processes complete quicker too
17.4 Using Asynchronous Processing
With the add-ons installed, Analysis numbers that exceed the set limits, are automatically queued and the user kept informed of its progress
17. 3 Configuring Queue management
In the Queue's Settings, point to the Queue server client and set the numbers of objects to process, max retries, the minimum seconds reserved per task and maximum seconds to wait. Set the Analysis caps for synchronous processing to diverge to the background and free the user up to continue with other tasks
3 Clients and Contacts
​Bika is​ entirely web based and Clients may track the progress of their Samples online, access and search their results and COAs or run reports on it

7 Calculations
Lab managers configure the lab's analysis results Calculations without programmer intervention using standard arithmetic operations +, -, *, / and more advanced percentages, square roots, exponentiation, and logarithmic functions to derive results from dependent analyses and interim fields
13.8 Instrument Results Import
If configured, Bika LIMS imports results files automatically from instruments' results destination folder. Here we dis cuss how to do it manually
