Adding a samples series works in the same way as adding samples, only when adding a sample the option Create Series must be checked.

Next, you can specify the following settings:

  • Number of samples – enter the number of samples (tubes) in the created sample series
  • Incremental naming – check this option to include an additional number before or behind each sample in the created sample series.

For the incremental naming option, you can set the starting number (i.e. the number the first sample in the sample series should get) and the step size of the numbering (i.e the number that should be added to each subsequent sample). In other words, when adding a sample series with a start number of 1 and a step size of 1, the created samples will be numbered 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. while adding a sample series with a start number of 5 and a step size of 5 will be numbered 5,10,15,20,25 etc.

Click proceed to enter all sample series information. In the opened form, you can enter all specifications for each sample in the series. When the incremental numbering option is selected the incremental number is displayed behind the sample name. Click Save and Close to create the samples series.

When adding series to a box the series will be placed horizontally change the Compartment Orientation to place samples vertically.
