To remove a sample from the inventory, you can archive a sample. Open the sample information sheet and click Delete. Note: deleted samples are not deleted from the system, they are instead transferred to the Sample Archive in accordance with GLP guidelines. In this way, empty tubes can simply be removed from the lab while keeping the link to sample information in the digital lab notebook intact.

If your sample is part of a sample series, you can either delete the sample through the sample information sheet or directly from the sample series list. Open the sample series information sheet and click the Delete icon.

In the pop-up window, you can choose to either delete the sample or remove it from the sample series. In the latter case, the sample is not archived but is removed from the batch of samples.

You can also delete multiple samples at once by selecting the Delete option from the Sample Actions dropdown. This action is present on the sample series information sheet, the Sample List, the Inventory Browser and the Advanced Search.
