NAPIS® LIMS: Inventory/Submit/Receive (ISR)

The Inventory feature provides query-based access to data within NAPIS. From the NAPIS Main Menu select LIMS | Inventory to open the drop-down list shown below. Within this feature it is possible to explore and report on the NAPIS data related to samples of all types. For example, you can report on the biological diversity represented by your collection set, or you can query for pure compounds and chemical properties.

AT NO TIME ARE YOU MAKING A TRANSACTION WITH THE DATABASE when working in Inventory.

Select a function from the drop-down list by highlighting the value and clicking on it. The functions are described in the table below.

Function Description
Collection / Isolate For inventory of taxonomically distinct organism collections to show the biological diversity of your collection set. This function does not show the many Biomass Samples related to each taxonomically distinct collection.
Voucher Specimens For inventory of replicate Voucher Specimens associated with a taxonomically distinct collection. Use this function to check inventory, or to prepare a group of Voucher Specimens for transmittal to a collaborating institution for museum or herbarium curation.
Microorganism Source Materials For inventory of replicate Microorganism Source Material samples that were acquired at one site. Use this function to check inventory, or to prepare a group of Microorganism Source Materials for transmittal to a collaborating organization for culture-plating of the associated microorganism colonies.
Microorganism Cryo Preserves For inventory of the many Microorganism Cryo Preserve samples that are saved for one Collection / Isolate. Use this function to check inventory, or to prepare a group of Microorganism Cryo Preserve samples for transmittal to a collaborating organization for growth or fermentation.
Biomass Samples (Field) For inventory of the many plant and/or marine Biomass Samples associated with one Collection. Use this function to check inventory, or to prepare a group of Biomass Samples for transmittal to a collaborating organization. NAPIS ® Lite users query inventory using this function to plan for submittal of Biomass Samples to their collaborators.
Biomass Samples (Lab Bank) For inventory of the many plant and/or marine Biomass Samples associated with one Collection in the Lab Material Bank. Use this function to check inventory, or to prepare a group of Biomass Samples for transmittal to a collaborating organization. NAPIS ® Enterprise or NAPIS ® Laboratory users query inventory using this function to plan for submittal of Biomass Samples to their collaborators.
Fermentation Samples (Ferm Lab) For inventory of the many microorganism Fermentation Samples associated with one Collection / Isolate in the Fermentation Lab. Use this function to check inventory, or to prepare a group of Fermentation Samples for transmittal to a collaborating department or organization.
Fermentation Samples (Lab Bank) For inventory of the many microorganism Fermentation Samples associated with one Collection / Isolate in the Lab Material Bank. Use this function to check inventory, or to prepare a group of Fermentation Samples for transmittal to a collaborating department or organization.
Chemistry Material Samples For inventory of the many Chemistry Material Samples associated with one Biomass Sample in the Lab Material Bank. Use this function to check inventory, or to prepare a group of Chemistry Material Samples for transmittal to a collaborating organization.
Microtiter Plates For inventory of Microtiter Plates prepared with Crude Extracts, Extract Fractions, Purification Fractions or Pure Compounds.
