Sample History

contents | prev | next

Everytime a change is made to aliquot or sample data, a new version of that aliquot is created. This means that you can always see all of the changes made to any sample, and which user has made the change. This is very useful for regulatory purposes as well as just for keeping track of what has been done to samples.

To see the history of a sample select the sample you wish to see and then click the sample history button as shown below.

The following page is displayed showing the list of previous versions of the sample.

If you click any of these previous versions, the sample is displayed as it was at the time of that edit. You can then choose to restore that previous sample version to the current version. This will create a new sample version. So for example if you were to select version 3 of a sample record which is currently on version 5, you would create a new version 6 which was identical to version 3.
