Data-Coding 2226

Name: LIMS data transfer route

Description: This identifies the route whereby data from laboratory analysers reached the central UK Biobank LIMS (laboratory information management system) database. It's relevance is that it affects the interpretation of the time that an item of data was acquired, since the timestamp reflects the time that the data reached the LIMS system rather than when the actual measurement was done.

This is a flat (unstructured) list which uses integers to represent categories or special values.

Coding can be downloaded here as a tab-separated file.
