    Abstract

    The increasing workload in environmental laboratories and an increase in automation has brought about an increase in the complexity of data management systems for the laboratory. In many cases, the laboratory system is composed of incompatible parts that require much human intervention to establish communication. The integration of data management procedures and systems in the environmental laboratory is as yet an unrealized goal for those laboratories depending on off-the-shelf technology. This paper discusses efforts in the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency to bring about the integration of instruments, laboratory information management systems, and manual data handling procedures to achieve a coherent information management program for environmental laboratories.
