Step 3: Edit Stocks

  • Download the Excel file received by email.
  • Make all changes needed inside the Excel file.

It is important to note-

  • Stock ID column have to be with the correct ID, Do not leave this empty.
  • Labguru will update any stock that have data written in it's row if it is the same data as before no change will be applied but it will state that the stock was updated, if a cell is left empty it update it, and the data will remain as before the update.
  • You may change a content of a stock as long as the new content is of same collection (stocks are 'collection sensitive' e.g. a plasmid cannot become an antibody) and its corresponding system ID is provided. 
  • If designated position within a box is already taken, stocks will be placed in the next available slot. 
  • Changing locations - It is possible to change stocks' locations within a box, move to another box or to a storage location. Changes from a Storage location to a box cannot be done. 
  • In general, make sure you keep the same rule like when importing stocks.
