The AutoSperm system has been discontinued. These pages are for documentation only.

How to customize the printed report

The sample report created by AutoSperm is based on a template file named reporttemplate.htm, which is located in the AutoSperm program directory (typically c:\program files\autosperm\).

This file is a standard HTML file which you can modify.

  • Before modifying the file, make a backup copy first.
  • The file must be saved as a UNICODE text file.

You can place your laboratory name and address in the template, and possibly add images such as a laboratory logo.

The template can contain a large number of fields, listed below, which at the time of printing are replaced with their corresponding values. For example, the field $$PATIENTNAME$$ will be replaced with the patient name.

Patient and sample identification fields

$$SAMPLENUMBER$$ Sample number
$$PATIENTNAME$$ Patient name
$$PATIENTDOB$$ Patient date of birth
$$RECORDNUMBER$$ Patient record number
$$PARTNERNAME$$ Partner name
$$PARTNERDOB$$ Partner date of birth
$$SUBGROUP$$ Subgroup code
$$REFERENCE$$ Reference
$$NOTES$$ Notes
$$EJACULATIONDATE$$ Ejaculation date
$$EJACULATIONTIME$$ Ejaculation time
$$ABSTINENCE$$ Abstinence (days)

Referring doctors fields

There may be 2 referring doctors for each sample. Replace n in the field name with 1 or 2. E.g. $$REFERRER1.NAME$$ is the name of the first referrer, and $$REFERRER2.NAME$$ is the name of the second referrer.
 

$$REFERRERn.NAME$$ Referrer name
$$REFERRERn.FIRSTNAME$$ Referrer first name

Semen analysis fields

There may be 3 semen analysis for each sample. Replace n in the field name with 1, 2 or 3. E.g. $$AN1.CONCENTRATION$$ is the sperm concentration for the 1st semen analysis, and $$AN2.CONCENTRATION$$ is the sperm concentration for the 2nd semen analysis.

$$ANn.GRAPHLINVELOCITY$$ Shows a histogram for Linear Velocity
$$ANn.GRAPHLININDEX$$ Shows a histogram for Linearity Index

Additional analyses fields

There may be 20 additional analyses fields for each sample. Replace nn in the field name with 01, 02 .. 20. E.g. $$ADDINFO.01TXT$$ is the 1st description field and $$ADDINFO.01RES$$ is the 1st result field. $$ADDINFO.12TXT$$ is the 12th description field and $$ADDINFO.12RES$$ is the 12th result field.
