Culture Schedule and Harvest Labels

It may be useful to obtain a list of when cultures need to be fed and harvested. LDMS has a special report that does just that. This is also the same mechanism you would use to create printable labels for your culture harvests.

  1. From the Assay Selection tab, click the button from the LDMS toolbar.

  2. Select Harvest Feed.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • Select the Pending option; this will find all cultures that have not been terminated.

    • Select the Group for which you want to find all cultures.

  4. Specify the date range; LDMS will find all culture events that occur within this date range.

  5. Generate the event report or labels by selecting the Generate Report or Generate Labels button respectively.

Unlike labels for normal specimens, the labels for culture harvests cannot be customized. If you are planning to permanently store a culture, you'll need to create a culture derivative, which will open up the same label and storage options available to normal specimens.
