In addition to creating individual samples, you can also define batches of the same sample, referred to within the system as Sample Series. Users can use a sample series to easily add multiple tubes of the same sample to the lab inventory. In the Sample List, sample series are grouped and displayed as a yellow-shaded single line, with the number of samples in the series included between brackets.

Click the sample series link to open the series information sheet, which lists the individual samples contained within the sample series as well as their storage locations. In this way, sample series can be used to effectively track stocks of important samples that are stored across different locations.
