To store a new sample in to the lab inventory, navigate to Sample List in the Inventory tab and click on Add. Note that you should first define a Storage Unit and a Sample Type to add a sample.




In the appeared popup window you can select the type of sample you want to store. Note that the Sample Types available for each lab can be easily be configured according to the lab requirements.





You can also add a sample by navigating to the location where you want to store the sample. In a box, you can click on an empty position in the box.





You can also add samples to compartments without a grid (e.g. a drawer or a tower). In that case you can use the add button in the Inventory Browser and choose the Add Sample option.





Next an input form opens to enter sample information. There are standard fields to enter a Name, a Description, the Storage Location and Notes. In addition, there are sample specification fields, which are the custom fields you can add when configuring sample types. If you have the quantity and ordering module enabled, you can also track sample quantities.
