NAPIS® LIMS: Work Order

The Work Order feature is used to make a transaction with the database when you consume a sample in a process within your group. From the NAPIS Main Menu select LIMS | Work Order to open the drop-down list shown below.

Creating a query-based Inventory is a required first-step, and can be done directly from the Work Order form.

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
Biomass Samples for Grinding (Optional) For grinding Field Biomass Samples. Use primarily for Terrestrial Plants and Marine Organisms where there is a formal protocol for grinding and the material sample quantities require tracking. Segregates samples into bulk or ground material types for Inventory and Submit. Useful for tracking groups of samples processed together, or grinding lots, to answer any question about cross-contamination in the process.
Source Materials for Culture Plating (Optional) For Culture Plating Microorganism Source Material samples to isolate the colony-forming units. Use to manage the laboratory work-flow for processing these samples as a group.
Isolates for Fermentation (Optional) For Fermentation of Microorganism Cryo Preserve samples to create fermentation broth biomass for extraction. Use this function to manage the Microorganism Cryo Preserve inventory for laboratory processing.
Fermentation Samples for Extraction For chemical extraction of microorganism Fermentation Sample biomass from the Lab Material Bank inventory. Use to manage the laboratory work-flow for processing these samples as a group.
Biomass Samples for Extraction For chemical extraction of plant and marine macroorganism Biomass Samples from the Lab Material Bank inventory. Use to manage the laboratory work-flow for processing these samples as a group.
Chemistry Samples for Fractionation For fractionation of Chemistry Samples from the Lab Material Bank inventory. Use to manage the laboratory work-flow for processing these samples as a group.
Chemistry Samples for Purification For purification of Chemistry Samples from the Lab Material Bank inventory. Use to manage the laboratory work-flow for processing these samples as a group.
Chemical Compound Purification For final purification of Chemistry Samples from the Lab Material Bank inventory. Use to manage the laboratory work-flow for processing these samples as a group.
Chemistry Samples for Analytical Chemistry (Optional) For managing the consumption of material samples in the process of profiling of extracts or fractions, or chemical characterization or structural elucidation of semi-pure or purified compounds.
Microtiter Plate Preparation (Optional) For creation of Microtiter Plates for bioassay testing. Use this function to create plates of extracts, fractions, purification fractions or pure compounds. Create one mother plate or replicate mother plates.
