Vial/Substance Editor

The Vial/Substance Editor allows you to manage the vials and substances of your visionCATS system. It can remove unused vials and substances, and also changes some global values.

Vial List

All the vial IDs of the system are listed here. Each vial is an unique name/number for each sample or standard.

CAMAG recommends, for each sample/standard, an unique vial ID with 6 characters (e.g. the batch number). The CAMAG laboratory has named its samples with the abbreviation S in combination with a number (e.g. S12345). For the references the same pattern was applied, but with the abbreviation R.

In case of quantitative analysis, the vial ID could in addition reflect the concentration (e.g. R12345-0.1 for a standard with the concentration 0.1 mg/mL). It is important to notice that each dilution of a standard should get its own vial ID.

  • hideimported Only show the vial created locally

  • onlyunused Only show unused vials

  • onlyduplicate Only show duplicate vials

  • fromsubstance Show vials corresponding to selected substance

  • delete Delete the selected vial, if it is not used

  • correctcase Corrects the case of all vials to Sentence case, if possible

Note

Since visionCATS 2.1, Sentence case (first letter in upper case) is used for vial and substance names, to avoid any duplicates because of different case.

Even after importing from another system, a vial or a substance should be unique. Sentence case enforcement implies that regardless of who and where it was entered, it would always be displayed the same, on every visionCATS system.

The vials imported via an analysis import are marked with document-import_16.

Substance List

All the substances of the system are listed here.

  • fromvial Show substances corresponding to selected vial

  • onlyduplicate Only show duplicate substances

  • delete Delete the selected substance, if it is not used

  • correctcase Corrects the case of all substances to Sentence case, if possible

Selected Vial

Display the name of the vial, and eventually where it is used.

  • Name: name of the vial, can be changed

  • Is disabled: a vial can be disabled, so that it would not be anymore shown in new items

  • Delete: delete the vial if it is not used

Items using both selected vial and substance are marked in green.

Selected Substance

Display the name of the substance, and eventually where it is used.

  • Name: name of the substance, can be changed

  • Is disabled: a substance can be disabled, so that it would not be anymore shown in new items

  • Delete: delete the substance if it is not used

Items using both selected vial and substance are marked in green.

Substance in Vial

When defining for the first time a reference substance in a vial, you will set its concentration and purity. It is then only possible to alter these values here. You can also completely delete the link between the substance and the vial.

Warning

Modifying these values will delete all results data (calibration functions and computed sample concentrations) in every evaluation of every analysis having this couple reference/substance defined in the references table.

If used in at least one locked evaluation, no modification is allowed.
