Deleting Sample Series
To remove a sample series from your inventory, you can either delete all samples or remove the series. Open the samples series information sheet and click Delete. Note that all actions in the top action menu are performed on all samples in the series. To perform actions of a part of the samples in the sample series, use the checkboxes and select the action in the Sample Actions drop-down menu.
Next, you have the following options
- Remove the sample series – removing the sample series only unlinks the sample batch created without removing the samples in the lab inventory.
- Delete all samples – archives the sample series, thereby removing the samples from the lab inventory.
Note that deleted samples are not deleted from the system but are transferred to the Sample Archive. In this way, empty tubes can simply be removed from the lab inventory while keeping the link to sample information in the digital lab notebook intact.
You can also delete multiple sample series at once by selecting the delete option from the Sample Actions drop down menu. This option is present on the sample series information sheet, the Sample List, Inventory Browser and the Advanced Search.
