Entering physicochemical parameters
Enter the values of the different parameters that you have measured.
It is not necessary to measure all parameters to obtain an indication. The more parameters you enter, the more relevant the final indication will be.
Save the measurement.
Why is the measure invalid?
The measurement is invalid when the value of “R2 – R1” is less than 200 RLU.
This alert indicates that the addition of the Standard was not done correctly. Most often, this is due to improper mixing of the Standard with the sample. Tap the lumitube on a flat surface, homogenize, and restart the measurement.
If the problem persists, several factors may be involved:
- The reagents and/or sample are too cold. The analysis should be performed at a temperature above 18°C. Warm up the reagents and repeat the measurement.
- The enzyme in the lumitube is not active enough (expired, degraded). To check the status of the reagents, perform a check of the luminometer and the reagents.
- The sample has an inhibitory effect. Repeat the measurement by rinsing the membrane with sterile water or a specific solution after filtration of the sample (contact GL BIOCONTROL for more information).
How do I view the history of measurements?
The Measurements History tab allows you to view all measurements carried out by you and your agency.
For better readability, you can sort the measurements by sampling point, by luminometer, or by network or municipality to which they belong.
You can export the selected data in CSV format by clicking on “Export CSV”.

How do I import old measurements?
In the application menu, click on Measurements history and then on CSV Import in the upper right corner.To import sampling points from a CSV file, use the template below or download the example file and fill it in.
Only the “Station, date, Volume, R1 and R2” columns are mandatory. The sampling point (station) must exist in the application before a measurement can be imported for that point (see How to add a new sampling point? or How to import a list of sampling points?). Likewise, if you provide a luminometer number, it must have been entered in the application beforehand.
Once ready, click “Select a file”, choose your CSV file, and click “Upload”. The application checks that the list of measurements meets the conditions defined above. If a line does not meet the conditions, it is grayed out and the measurement will not be imported into the application.
Click “Validate” to finalize the import of the list of measurements.
How do I download the analysis report?
In the application menu, click on Measurement History, then select the measurement of interest.
You will then see the complete summary of the analysis.

How do I create a chart?
In the application menu, click on “Measurements History“.
In addition to the List tab, which shows all the measurements made, there are 2 tabs for plotting graphs:
Allows you to visualize the evolution of one or several sampling points over time. Select one or more sampling points and a graph showing the quantity of ATP over time is plotted. Using the drop-down menu at the top right, you can add another physicochemical parameter (pH, free chlorine, temperature…) to the graph.
Allows you to map your network in order to have an overview and identify any defects. Select one or more dates, and a histogram-type graph is plotted.
Under each graph, you can display the represented data. You can choose to eliminate certain measurements.
How do I export a chart?
In the Measurements history tab, click on Monitoring or Mapping to plot a graph.
You can export the graph in JPEG, PNG, or SVG format by clicking on the “Export” button at the top right.
How do I add a user?
- Enter the user’s email, first name, and last name.
- Choose the language used.
- Define a role. You have the choice between:
The person responsible for the operators. They manage all the measurements taken by the operators and can modify or delete them. They can add/modify/delete sampling points, luminometers, and thresholds. They can also add other managers and operators.
They only manage the measurements, sampling points, and luminometers that they have created. They can view all the measurements taken by other operators/managers but cannot modify or delete them.
Save the new user.
An email is sent to the user inviting them to set their password to complete their registration.
How do I modify or delete a user?
To modify or delete a user, go to the Users section in the application menu. From there, click on the pencil icon on the top right to modify the user or on the trash bin icon to delete them.
Note that deleting a user is irreversible, but it does not delete the entries made by the user (measurements, luminometers, sampling points, etc.).
What is the difference between a “manager” and an “operator”?
The manager is responsible for the operators. They manage all the measurements made by the operators and can modify or delete them. They can also add, modify, or delete sampling points, luminometers, and thresholds, and can add other managers and operators.
An operator can only manage the measurements, sampling points, and luminometers they have created. They can view all the measurements made by other operators/managers but cannot modify or delete them.
