They will still be able to utilize and navigate to these items but will not take up real estate of the home page or side bar if they are not one of the users most used applications.

  • Mapping of data fields to custom attributes on the system
  • Tagging newly created samples, either from defined tags in the file itself, or pre-set tags for the entire system

  • Added the ability to archive experiments, so as experiments or projects are no longer needed, the user can archive them, this allows them to not show up in standard searches but are still available as the user needs them.
  • Enhanced sample archival to add a reason for archiving, this will allow for an audit of why a sample was archived, in order to look back at it if the lab user is no longer with the company or cannot recall why they archived it
