Create Lab Services

Lab Services are used to define the details about the analytical packages that the laboratories are using to analyze samples.  Lab Services have associated Method Details, which define the specific analytes, units, and detection limits with the package.  Lab Services and Method Details are used to define Sample Analysis Workflows, which are used to import laboratory certificates.

Lab Services can be created manually or can be imported from a CSV file.  MX Deposit is also pre-loaded with information about the Lab Services from a few popular labs.  This can be added to your subscription through an “Import from Library” function.
