This tutorial will introduce the specimen repository tools by walking through the process of setting up a specimen repository with a request system, making a sample 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 configures and populates the repository.
- Specimen Repository Coordinator: the person configures and administers the request system.
- 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 local evaluation server. See Setup the Sample Study
if you do not already have a sample study to work with locally.
