Maintenance Notice: labkey.org will be offline at 10:00 AM Pacific Time on Sunday, July 14th 2024 for maintenance. The estimated downtime should be no more than one hour. Please save your work before this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
This step explains how to put into place the tabs and web parts that form the user interface for the laboratory workflow folder.

Set Up a Folder

  • Log in to your server and navigate to your "Tutorials" project. Create it if necessary.
    • If you don't already have a server to work on where you can create projects, start here.
    • If you don't know how to create projects and folders, review this topic.
  • Create a new subfolder named "Lab Workflow". Choose the folder type "Assay."


We will set up three tabs to reflect the basic workflow: the lab begins with Vials, which are run through different Experiments, which finally provide Assay Results.

  • You should now have three tabs in this order: Vials, Experiments, Assay Results.

Web Parts

Finally add web parts to the tabs. These web parts allow users to manage the inventory, samples, and assay data.

Now you have a basic user interface: each tab represents a different part of the lab workflow in left to right order: vials --> experiments --> assay results.

In the next topic we add data to our workspace.
