Sample Ownership

contents | prev | next

Each sample has an owner. Normal inventory users of eCAT can only see samples that they own themselves, so it is sometimes necessary to transfer the ownership of samples to another user. An example of this being useful would be if the lab manager was preparing a set of samples from a solution that the lab members would then use. The lab manager would create the samples, and then transfer ownership of them to the lab users that needed them. When the lab users next logged in they would be able to see all of the new samples.

To transfer ownership, select the samples you wish to transfer and then click the ownership button as shown below.
