Step 3. Select the account to associate the POCT test to by either searching for the company with the quick search tool (use 3 characters minimum) or by clicking off the search box and use the account drop down selector.

Step 4. Enter the donor or personnel ID and last name and click "continue" (the system will look to see if this personnel record already exists. If it doesn't find a match, it will display text "No matching records". Selecting "New" will create a new personnel record and allow you to continue.
Step 5. Fill out all required information while being sure to select the appropriate "Reason For Test", Test Type" and "Sample Type" options.

Helpful note: Note their are differences between an Instant test or "POCT" test and a lab-based drug test. In RedArrow, a test type of "Drug" means a lab-based test, while any other type of test involving a rapid test cup, lateral flow reader, dip test, etc. should be added as a POCT test.

Step 7. Add the test information required and click "save".

Helpful notes:
  • The configuration settings associated with the account or company will determine when the test is ready to report out. When a test contains enough information to meet the configuration requirements, it will move to the Work list>Reporting>Manual Reporting area where the result can be released via the reporting profiles set for the account (e-mail, fax, web, etc.)
  • The individual drugs tested by the laboratory can be added via the "Result Detail" link displayed in the Testing Result area.
