  2. Spreadsheet - In addition, LightLab provides a comma-separated values (CSV) file which gives you maximum flexibility and the opportunity to further analyze sample results in aggregate.

  3. Report - You can use the CSV file to generate a full report, containing all the details about the sample you ran, including all inputted information such as moisture correction, operator, sample size and more.
