How To: Use GLP Features

Document ID: DQ256
Relevant to following products: WorkOut 2.0 Manta
Document description: How To: Use GLP Features



The GLP feature included in build 311 or later adds specific functionality useful for working under guidelines such as GLP/GMP or for storing user supplied data alongside each assay run.

Essentially this feature enables you to setup a protocol to prompt the user for data each time the assay is run. The user supplied data is stored with the results. For example, you may want to ask the user to enter their name, operator ID, batch number each time they run the assay.

To setup an assay protocol to use GLP:
  1. Create your protocol as normal.
  2. Open the existing protocol for editing.
  3. In the Advanced tab in the bottom right hand corner of the protocol editor, select the GLP tab.
  4. Press Edit…
  5. Tick the Protocol uses GLP option
  6. Press Configure…
  7. The GLP Configuration dialogue is displayed, you can use this control to setup the fields which the user must enter before the assay can start. For example, if you wanted the user to enter their name each time they run the assay you would create a field called “Name”
  8. Press Add Field… to add a new field.
  9. Enter a Full Name for the field (this can contain spaces).
  10. Enter a Short Name (this should not contain any spaces). The short name is used to refer to the data entered by the user from transform expressions.
  11. Optionally enter a Description to give the user more information about what they need to enter.
  12. Select the Field Type (String, Floating Point or Number)
  13. You can optionally enter a Default Value.
  14. There are two further options to specify whether the user can start the assay without entering the data and whether the field can be changed after the assay has been measured.
  15. Press OK to save your new fields settings.
  16. Add/Edit further GLP fields as required.
  17. Press OK until you exit the Protocol Editor to save your changes.
When this protocol is run the user must enter the GLP data as setup in the protocol.
