Below detection limit

StarLIMS uses some acronyms in the user interface where space is a consideration. The BDL link is used in the context of results entry to automatically fill in the negative, or within-specification, results. For example, screening samples for E. Coli can yield a majority of negative results. Instead of manually entering all results, you can enter only positive results, and fill the rest of the records with negative by clicking the BDL link. If a result is numeric, the BDL link populates the final results fields with whatever value represents the below detectable limit state, such as >= .5.
