LabKey Server

Data Types

  • A new Text Choice data type lets admins define a set of expected text values for a field. (docs)

Samples

  • Sample status types and values will be exported and imported with folder archives, when the sampleManagement module is present. (docs)

Assays

  • Optionally require a comment when a user changes the QC state of an assay run.

Flow Cytometry

  • If Samples are defined at the project level, they can be referenced from Flow subfolders without having to redefine new local copies. (docs) (Also available in version 21.11.1.)

Panorama

  • Improvements to Reproducibility Report - light/heavy ratio
  • Show Peak area or Quality info in protein sequence view

DataFinder

  • The DataFinder module has been enhanced to support partial word searching, custom publication facets and reordering of facets, and multiple data finders on a single server. Several unused publication facets have been removed. (docs) (Also available in version 21.11.4)

Sample Manager

  • Sample Finder - find samples based on source and parent information
  • When a sample is either discarded from storage or marked as consumed, users will be able to do both in one step.
  • A new Text Choice data type lets admins define a set of expected text values for a field.
  • Naming patterns will be validated during sample type definition.
  • User-defined barcodes included in sample definitions and sample search-by-barcode results
  • Editable grids include visual indication when a field offers dropdown choices.
  • Bulk freezer configuration
  • The "Sample Count by Status" graph on the main dashboard now shows samples by type (in bars) and status (using color coding). Click through to a grid of the samples represented by each block. (docs)
  • Grids that may display multiple Sample Types, such as picklists, workflow tasks, etc. offer tabs per sample type, plus a consolidated list of all samples. This enables actions such as bulk sample editing from mixed sample-type grids. (picklists | tasks | sources)
  • Improved display of color coded sample status values. (docs)
  • Include a comment when updating storage amounts or freeze/thaw counts. (docs)
  • Workflow tasks involving assays will prepopulate a grid with the samples assigned to the job, simplifying assay data entry. (docs)

Biologics

  • Use Sample Finder for report construction
  • Use Notebook Finder to locate notebooks based on various criteria
  • ELN improvements:
    • Tables pasted into an ELN will be reformatted to fit the page width. Users can adjust the display before export or print.
    • Printing to PDF includes formatting settings including portrait/landscape and fit-to-page.
    • Comments on Notebooks will send email notifications to collaborators with more detail.
  • A new Text Choice data type lets admins define a set of expected text values for a field. (docs)
  • Naming patterns will be validated during sample type definition.
  • User-defined barcodes included in sample definitions and sample search-by-barcode results
  • Editable grids include visual indication when a field offers dropdown choices.
  • Bulk freezer configuration
  • Freezer Management for Biologics: Create a virtual match of your physical storage system, and then track sample locations, availability, freezer capacities, and more. (docs)
  • Samples can be gathered on user-curated picklists to assist in many bulk actions. (docs)
  • Workflow job sample lists, and other grid views containing samples of different types, offer tabs for viewing all the samples of each individual type as well as a consolidated tab showing all samples. (docs)
  • When a workflow job includes samples, tasks that import assay data will auto-populate the assigned samples. (docs)
  • Additional formatting options available for electronic lab notebooks, including special characters. (docs)
