31005 : LBL Labels And Containers Delivered (for Label Information Provider)

This test concerns the LIP (Label Information Provider) actor. You will need to communicate with the LBL Simulator, in order to simulate the LAB-63 transaction of the LBL Profile.

In this test, the Label Broker notify the effective labeled containers production to the Label Information Provider.
So, the LBL Simulator, needs to know the labeling instruction, before to send a notification message to the LIP for the effective labels printing and labeled containers production.
Two steps are necessary in this test :

  • First, the SUT (System Under Test) will send the labeling instruction to the LBL Simulator.
  • Second, the LBL Simulator will notify the SUT for the effective labels printing and labeled containers production.

You can't run this test if you don't passed the "LBL Request Mode For Labeling Instruction" pre-connectathon test.


Access the LBL Simulator tool at this location : LBLSimulator
If it is your first time with this tool, please read the user manual : LBL Simulator User Manual
Please be remind that if you are logged in your configurations will be private.

First step :

  1. Go to the "Simulators" menu entry and choose "LB" page to begin your test.
  2. Select the "LAB-61 Transaction" tab. In the charset drop-down list, select the desired charset.
  3. Use the Ip Address and the Port linked to this charset to send your message with the labeling instructions to the LBL Simulator.
  4. Don't forget to hit the "Refresh List" button after to have send your message.

Second step :
As your system implements the LIP (LIP acts as a responder in this part of the test) :

  1. Create or update the configuration corresponding to the SUT.
  2. Go to the "Simulators" menu entry and choose "LB" page to begin your test.
  3. Select the "LAB-63 Transaction" tab. In the SUT Configurations drop-down list, select your LIP system.
  4. Then, select in the "Table on the tubes label by the LB simulator" table, the tube according to your labeling instruction send to the LBL Simulator in the first step of this test. You can use the filter option to find it easy.
  5. Once you have selected the right tube to confirm, hit the "Send the confirmation of the selected labeled tubes" button. The LBL Simulator will send the message to your system.
  6. Check the simulator has properly received your acknowledgement message.
  7. The messages exchanged between the simulator and the SUT can be found in the message table on the very same page or from the HL7 Message menu entry. Hit the link on the left side  of the raw (first column of the table), to display the Permanent Link to test report for the corresponding HL7 message. (You can access to the hl7v2 report tutorial for more details.) If the validation report status is passed for the message and the response, copy the "test result link" and paste it in the comment section of the pre-connectathon log return page as the result for this test. For further details, see this tutorial : How enter your pre-connectathon test result in Gazelle (only for the LAW, LCSD and LBL Profiles of the Laboratory Domain which send HL7v2 messages) ?


  • The validation status must be passed for the two messages of the transaction.
  • The message type must be the right message type, according to IHE.
  • The Acknowledgment code must be "AA" (MSA-1) in the acknowledgment message.
