#1. When uploading aliquots through Bulk Import Records, is it possible to assign barcodes separately to each aliquot?
—> Yes, you can bulk update the barcode using a specimen template. Please refer to the attached specimen bulk import file. (specimen.csvspecimen.csv (208 Bytes)
Note: Before running the specimen update file, enabled the ‘Specimen Barcoding’ in the CP settings. See the below-attached screenshot.
You can refer wiki page here to update any specimen field.
#2. Currently, only labels are auto-generated but if I wanted the aliquots to have barcodes, how could I do that?
—> Set the “Barcode Format” in the CP settings. It automatically generates barcodes.
#3. Also is it possible to change the barcodes of samples (specimens or aliquots) in a bulk operation?
Currently, if I want to change a barcode I have to go to each specimen or aliquot and change them one-by-one.
–> Yes, Please refer #1.
