instead. Learn more

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.
To be able to use this tutorial, you must have the specimen module installed and enabled
on your server.
