Adding specimens to an existing rack

From Tubetracker
Jump to: navigation, search

It is sometimes necessary to add additional specimens to a rack already entered into tube.tracker. There are two methods for adding specimens. The first is the default method and is identical to the Bulk Add Method for a new rack. The second is similar to the Conventional Add Method and can only be used if your internet browser cannot perform the bulk method.
