Import Assay Data

To import new assay data:

  • Hover over Assays and select the assay design you wish to import into.
  • Select either Runs or Batches and click Import Data.
  • On the Data Import page fill out the form:
    • Batch Properties - (Optional) If the system has been configured to accept batch level properties, enter information to describe the batch.
    • Run Properties - (Optional) These properties capture the characteristics of this assay experiment, such as a unique id, the instrument settings, special circumstances, or which request this data fulfills.
      • Assay Id - If no id is supplied, then the assay file name will be used. If no file name is used, then an id will be created from the assay design name plus a time stamp.
      • Comments - Add text to record special circumstances connected to this assay run.
      • Assay Request - Select the original assay request, if any.
    • Run Data - There are three tabs in the Run Data panel. To help your data conform to the assay design, Download Template to use.
      • Upload Files - On this tab (shown in the screencap above), you can either click the (paperclip) icon to browse to your assay data file or you can drag and drop the file onto the upload area.
      • Copy-and-paste Data - On this tab, you can copy-and-paste your data into a text box.
      • Enter Data Into Grid - On this tab, you can manually enter data (at the run level only).
  • Click Save and Finish or Save and Import Another Run.

Import Assay Data Associated with a Sample

An alternative way to import assay data lets you directly associate assay data with some sample(s) in the registry.

From the Samples grid, select one or more samples, and then select Insert New > Upload Assay Data. The menu will expand to show the assay options from which to select.

The assay import form will be pre-populated with the selected samples, as shown below. (Note that only manual data entry is supported for this style of entering assay data.)

Re-Import Run

In cases where you need to revise assay data after uploading to the server, you can replace the data by "re-importing" a run.

To re-import a run of assay data:

  • Go the details page for the target run. (For example, go to the runs table for an assay, and click one of the runs.)
  • Click the triple bar icon () and select Re-import Run.
  • Re-enter any batch and run properties, and select the new assay data file to replace the data currently on the server.
  • Click Save and Finish.
  • The data replacement event is recorded by the "Replaced By" field.

Delete Assay Run

To delete an assay run:

  • Go the details page for the target run. (For example, go to the runs table for an assay, and click one of the runs.)
  • Click the triple bar icon () and select Delete Run.
  • On the Confirm Deletion page, click Confirm Delete.
