This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions for setting up a specimen repository, enabling the request system, creating a new specimen request, and tracking that request. The tutorial is divided into sections based on the role of the person performing those tasks:
- Administrator: the person who sets up and populates the repository itself.
- Specimen Repository Coordinator: the person who configures and administers the request system, if enabled.
- Users/Requesters: project users granted additional permission to request specimens.
Even if you will not be acting as the administrator or coordinator on a production server, you may find it instructive to read through or even complete these steps as an admin on your own trial server.
