Simple Replicate a Kit
Users can make an exact copy of a kit they have created by using the Simple Replicate option. This option will open a new kit in a new editor. This kit will contain all the information in the table from the original kit, except the Sample ID and the Kit Label in the properties panel. BSI will attempt to Fill all of the supply types listed in the new kit using the lot numbers listed in the original kit. The supply counts for the lot numbers associated with the original kit may go negative if there are not enough supplies to fill the new kit. If the supply count does go negative, the fill will complete and the user will receive a warning stating that the supply counts for this lot are now negative.
To simple replicate a kit:
- When a kit is open in the Kit editor, press the Simple Replicate button on the toolbar or choose the Simple Replicate option from the Tools menu.
- When this option is selected, a Replicate Confirmation dialog will appear. To cancel the process, press Cancel on the dialog. To continue, press OK.
- After the kit is copied, an Open Replicate dialog will open. To edit the new kit later, press Cancel. To edit the new kit now, press the OK button. The replicated kit will open in a new editor.
