Creating a Sample Manager Lab Workflow

Workflow jobs in Sample Manager can be created directly from a set of samples, or samples can be assigned to jobs later. Workflow jobs are composed of tasks that can be assigned to laboratory staff and can include specific assays to be performed as part of the task. When creating a workflow job, details are entered including due dates, priority and notification settings. You’ll also be able to indicate the location of samples and attach files to the job.

Management of Workflow Jobs and Tasks

The job queue dashboard gives laboratory staff the ability to easily see upcoming work and manage their tasks. Lab managers can get a complete picture of the ongoing, upcoming and completed work taking place in the lab by using the workflow job list. This allows for effective capacity and resource planning to ensure the sample processing pipeline is free of roadblocks.
