Plate Record or Box Record:
- It is now standard to only recieve tissue in Matrix Box format with H12 being the control well, but you may come across the older form as well.
- Plate records Media:Plate Record Data Sheet.xls and Box records Media:BOX record data sheet.xls can be found on the Companion CD for submitting Data to Barcode of Life Data System.
- These are two separate forms, depending on how the box was filled. Plates are filled H to A, starting in H1, across to A1, and the last sample is A12. Boxes are filled A1 to A12, the last one filled being H12.
- Enter the plate name (eg. YIFOA-001, or BOX-3872). Several columns will appear when you click somewhere else on the page. Type in or past in the sample IDs.
- One record has to be made for each plate.
- If someone has sent a box of tissue they should have sent you a plate record along with it. If they sent a regular excel spreadsheet with the information, you have to make a plate record using that information.
- If there are problems with the plate record and it does not work, go to the second floor of BIO and find Alex Borisenko or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will fix the problem
- Make sure that the plate records are correct before putting them on LIMS. If you submit something to LIMS that was incorrect, it can be fixed by sending an e-mail to Riadul Mannan at email@example.com
Once you have the Plate or Box records filled out properly, you have to do a LIMS Submission.
Next, complete a CCDB request form on The Access System (Dataserv).
