    v7.1 Highlights

    Import Collection Protocols (CP) via CSV

    New Container Reports: Empty Slots and Utilisation

    To better utilise freezers, you can check the storage details of the freezer or individual containers within it. In v7.1, we have added two new reports to help with this.

    You can now

    • Delete specimens from the cart during distribution

    • Distribute up to 10,000 specimens from the query results

    Hide Collection/Received Event Details (JSON)
    Inputs from: Columbia University (USA) & Telethon Kids (Australia)
    Sometimes, the received event details are not available during collection. Or the collection event details could be different for different specimens.

    There are new enhancements in RDE to allow entering specimens as per collection protocol for multiple participants one after another like a workflow.
