Document description: How to: Create custom sample type
The software includes a number of useful sample types, including Unknown, Blank, Control, Standard, etc. It is possible to create your own sample types with their own name and appearance. For example, you may want to create a blank group called “BLK” rather than “Blank”.
To create your own custom sample types: from within the microplate layout editor press Edit Types. Press Edit and then press Add, create a sample type called “whatever” and change its Sample Type from User to let the software know how to process the sample type.
After creating your own sample type it will be available to include in all microplate layouts you will create in the future. To use the new sample type you must tick it on the Microplate Layout Groups dialogue. The new sample type will appear at the bottom of the list of sample types.
