If you are a test lab then making reports from the test is an integral part of your everyday work.  The Lab Service Manager (LSM) add-on in LabCollector allows you to make report templates.  Where you can use dynamic field pointer to create fields to be filled in the report.

Processing template can be used for internal purposes by the laboratory to have more information on test. It can include what reagents where used, what protocol steps were followed, etc.
