The topic explains how to import a pre-prepared assay design file, or XAR file.

Import Assay Design Archive (.XAR)

  • Upload the XAR file to the Files web part to your assay project.
  • In the Files web part, select the XAR file and click Import Data.
  • In the popup dialog select Import Experiment and click Import.
  • Refresh your Assay List web part.
  • The new assay will appear in list of available designs. If it does not appear immediately, it is still being uploaded, so wait a moment and refresh your browser window again.

You can now import individual run data files to the assay design.

Assay design import/export is not available for plate-based assays that use templates (such as NAb and ELISpot), but it is available for Generic-type assays and Luminex assays. Import/export does not currently support transform scripts, but does support validation properties (regular expressions and range checks on fields).

Example

An example XAR file is included in the LabKeyDemoFiles at LabKeyDemoFiles/Assays/Generic/GenericAssayShortcut.xar.
