This page shows how the Request entity interface can be utilized. If you would like to know how it is built, visit the developer page.


The sidebars show entity information: The right sidebar contains information on related entities such as inbox, and customer while the left sidebar contains metadata such as the request ID and status.

The left sidebar also allows for changes to the methods attached to the request. Clicking the add/remove in the Details section opens a pop-up menu in which new methods can be added, or old ones removed:

Checking a box in the top section adds a new method to the map below. Individual samples can then be mapped to methods.

Additionally, clicking Create in the Details section allows the user to create experiment entities and link them to request:

Currently, the pop-up displays the regular experiment entity creation menu. In later versions, templates matching the selected methods will be available.

Handling Samples

From the central panels, the user can inspect notes and samples attached to the request. They can be edited by clicking the edit button in the top-right corner of the panels.

This is also where an employee can confirm that the samples have been received.

This is accomplished by clicking the Receive & Store button, which will open a pop-up for marking and storing samples:

The pop-up is designed for the receiving employee to be able to note package conditions, mark samples as received, and complete a storage transaction. This will give each sample a location property marking where they are physically located.

New locations can be created either through the entity browser, or by clicking the Create New and Store button. This will open a new pop-up window, allowing the user to quickly generate a new storage location:

Once a location has been picked, a new panel with received events will appear. This panel shows storage transactions and can be used to track packages and samples.

Omed Request Interface Video

Below is a video of an Omed employee inspecting a request from his inbox, adding a preprocessing method to all of the samples, and accepting the samples with a storage transaction.
