Description (last modified by Nicklas Nordborg)

Enhancing biomaterial management in BASE by adding Biomaterial LIMS (BioLIMS) functionality. Shortly, the BioLIMS functionality would comprise the capability to organize biomaterial items into plates, broadly corresponding to how reporters can be organized in plates under Array LIMS.

Main features:

  • Create BioPlates with wells that can hold Biomaterial items.
  • BioPlates have a Geometry (re-use from Array LIMS).
  • Organize Biomaterials in BioPlates by moving/removing them to/from a well of a BioPlate, i.e., a biomaterial item can exist outside of a well or in a well. NOTE: in the regular table views of biomaterials all items should be viewable (both those in and outside of BioPlate wells). BioPlate and BioPlateWell could be columns in the view tables.
  • Create new biomaterial directly into a BioPlate well. For example, from an existing biomaterial, pointing to a BioPlate well can create a child biomaterial in that well. Thus, a user has the option to move a biomaterial into a well or to create a child biomaterial in a well.

Creating plates:
From a BioLIMS menu one would access functionality to create BioPlates that can hold biomaterials. Essentially, for these functions one would have the same interface as for ArrayLIMS with the exception that users should be able to create individual plates by clicking a “New…” button (for Array LIMS plates are always uploaded from file).

Managing BioPlates:
Table views for BioPlates should be available and can basically have the same layout as table view for ArrayLIMS plates. BioPlate view table can be available from the BioLIMS menu or from the regular view menu. Single BioPlate view could share layout with single ArrayLIMS plate view with tabs for properties, annotations, and wells. Additional action button (BioPlateAct) to remove/add biomaterials would be needed. Importantly, in the regular table views of biomaterials all items should be viewable (both those in and outside of BioPlate wells). BioPlate and BioPlateWell could be columns in the view tables.
