The data you obtain from running your samples through various instruments and experimental procedures can be uploaded into LabKey Sample Manager. To describe how each kind of data should be interpreted, stored, and associated with the samples themselves, you create a framework called an Assay Design
. Using this framework, many runs of data can be uploaded and stored in a way that makes it easy to interpret and analyze.
You can create as many different assay designs as you will need to describe the different types of data you will upload. In this section, learn about describing, importing, and updating assay data.
