Search for samples

You can search the Samples table for all sample attributes that are shown in the Samples table at the time of the search. Both predefined and custom sample attributes are included in the search results.

IMPORTANT! Search terms must adhere to the following rules.

  • An asterisk (*) is not allowed in the search field for use as a wildcard.

  • Searches are case-insensitive, that is, both upper-case and lower-cases letters are found regardless the case of search term letters.

  • Searches find every occurrence of a continuous string. For example, a search for demo in sample names returns a list of all samples with a name that includes demo. For example, demo1, demo2, and so on.

  • Spaces are removed during searches, and are therefore not recommended. For example, a search for demo 1 would return results only for data that includes the string demo1.

  1. In the Samples tab, click Overview.
  2. In the Search box, enter a keyword or text string, then click Go to return a list of samples that match the keyword.

    If the search string is invalid, the search field is outlined in red. Correct the search term to proceed.

The search results are returned in the Samples table.
