Toxicological Links


After the risk module has been setup, you may revisit the originating toxicological database (e.g. ToxicologicalProfiles.mdb) or a second database in search of individual contaminant links. This utility is useful for correcting associations with the previously identified database or associating particular contaminants with another database. If the number of contaminants to relink is high, it may be more efficient to rerun the Setup Risk Assessment again (Setting Up Risk).


To link or relink a single contaminant, select the contaminant of interest from the combo box in the secondary toolbar. From the Human Health menu, select Configure Human Health and then Rematch This Contaminant. SADA prompts for a toxicological database name.





After selecting a valid toxicological database, the following window appears.







The user’s contaminant name appears in the top box. Contaminants available from the database appear in the list box. To associate the contaminant in the top box, select a contaminant in the list box and press the Select button. Information from the associated selection is then transferred to the internal database and all relevant options in SADA are updated for this particular contaminant. This update occurs for the selected contaminant across all media types (soil, surfacewater, etc.) automatically.
