All of One Lambda software products are designed to assist personnel experienced in HLA analysis
by suggesting typing results. However, any clinical or diagnostic results must be carefully reviewed
by a person qualified in HLA typing to assure correctness. This software may be used to aid in
suggesting results, but should not be used as the sole method for determining reportable results.
This software is meant as a laboratory aid, not as a source of definitive results. The software
design does not mitigate hazards associated with the software. The laboratory director or
technologist trained in histocompatibility testing is required to review all data to detect any
problems with the software.
Please note that this document was prepared in advance of the HLA Fusion software release.

Opening the HLA Fusion Research Database Utility
The HLA Fusion Research Database Utility allows you to connect to any SQL server on your computer or the
network, depending on your permissions and your organization’s security policies.
To use any of the Fusion ResearchDatabase Utilities, you must first connect to a SQL Server. With the
exception of connecting to a database, the database tasks can be executed only on the server or on the
computer on which the database resides.
The following are guidelines for using the Fusion Research Database Utility:
•
You can connect to the SQL Server using either Windows Authentication or SQL Server Authentication.
If you use SQL Server Authentication, the Server dialog box displays the default database administrator
user name and password for a local client/server installation.
•
It is highly recommended that you do not switch collation and regional settings between databases. The
collation of databases and the SQL Server play a major role during database merge and migration.
•
Please do not alter the permission
1. Click the Database Utility icon on your computer desktop. The Database Utility main window is
displayed.
Figure 1: Fusion Research Database Utility Main Window
Note:
There is a status bar at the bottom of the Fusion Research Database Utility window that
displays the active user, server, database, and database mode (the User Name field says Not
Set if you are using Windows Authentication).

JavaScript must be enabled to view this document. Please enable JavaScript and reopen the document.
Note:
HLA Fusion Research software by default creates a smaller database of size 25MB, and allows
growth to the maximum size you select in the File Size (GB) field. For SQL 2000 Express, the
maximum size is 2GB. For 2005 Express and SQL 2008 Express, the maximum allowed database
size is 4GB. For a purchased SQL server, the maximum database size is 500GB.
Please ensure that you maintain consistent collations of your Fusion Research SQL Server
database. Different SQL Server collations use different comparison rules for data handling
which can cause a conflict during database merges if collation consistency is not maintained.
If the newly created database does not already exist, the system creates the new database and displays
the following message.

Note:
A detached database .mdf file is located in the directory where the Fusion instance of SQL was
installed (e.g., the default is C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL1\MSSQL\
Data).
Creating a Database Backup File
It is recommended that you create regular, frequent backups of your HLA Fusion Research database(s). If
some event occurs that corrupts a database, or makes it inaccessible, having a backup copy of the database
allows you to restore all data up through the date of the most recent backup. Use the Schedule Backup
feature to set up automated regular backups of a specified database—any day or time, and as often as
desired. For information on restoring a database with a backup copy, see Restoring a Database, p. 15.
The backup database must be saved to the local drive of the server or the computer on which you are creating
the backup copy. The filename of the backup file is the name of the database with a .bak extension.

Restoring a Database
You can use any database backups to restore (replace) a database that is no longer useful. The backup
database copy contains all HLA Fusion Research data up through the date of the backup creation. For
information about creating backup copies, see Creating a Database Backup File, p. 9.
You can restore a database backup to any existing or new database—except for the current database. If you
wish to restore a database backup for the current database, use the Merge Database feature described below.
Restoring a database can only be performed on the server or the computer where the backup database file
resides.

5. Click OK. The database is restored with the specified backup file.
Note:
SQL Server does not allow you to restore databases from certain sources, such as a network
drive or local computer desktop.
Merging Databases
This function allows you to combine two databases into one, regardless of their location. There are certain
guidelines to follow when merging databases:
•
Both databases must be the same version of HLA Fusion Research database.
•
Both databases should be backed up before performing a merge.
•
The source database information is copied into the target database.
•
When merging into an existing HLA Fusion Research database, ensure that destination database size is
big enough to store the source database if you are merging into an existing database. By existing
database, we mean that it has lab and user information at minimum. The source database lab data will be
copied if it is missing from the target database.
•
When merging into a new HLA Fusion Research database, first create a new database using Create
Database function (see Creating a New Database, p. 3), and make the size large enough to
accommodate the source database.
1. Within the Database Utility window, click the Database Tasks > Merge Database option.
Figure 26: Merge Fusion Databases

Note:
HLA Fusion Research checks the MesfEquivalent and MesfNormal columns in the well data table
for NaN or infinity values, and replaces these with a null or empty space. These columns have
been found to contain inconsistent data in earlier versions of One Lambda software.
Occasionally a database merge may fail due to an incompatibility of collation (data handling
rules established when the database is created) between the source and target databases. For
more information, please refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325335.
4. Click the Merge button below. The following message is displayed.
